Embracing Change and Balance: The Journey of Entrepreneurial Growth

In today's episode, I had the pleasure of speaking with the incredibly insightful Linda Andrews. Together, we delved into the world of entrepreneurship, exploring the balance between business growth and personal well-being, as well as the importance of mindset and discipline. Join me as we unpack these enriching topics that can transform the way you navigate your entrepreneurial journey.


As we ventured into our discussion, Linda underscored the necessity of a mindset check-in. It's not uncommon to assume that our attitudes are fixed, but our conversation highlighted that change is constant and often necessary. In the face of unknown challenges on your growth journey, I've realized that my fear can either halt my progress or spur me to the next leadership level. Remind yourself, as I do, that maintaining a growth mindset is essential to evolve and conquer new heights in your business.

Staying Focused Amidst the Noise

In today's fast-paced business world, distractions are plentiful, making discipline in information consumption a skill to master. Linda and I discussed how easy it is to go down a rabbit hole of endless data, facts, and opinions. Here's my strategy: before diving into solutions, fully understand the problems at hand. This approach not only sharpens your focus but also avoids the harder learning curve that quick, uninformed fixes can create.

Rethinking the "Lifestyle Business"

The term "lifestyle business" often carries a negative connotation, but Linda and I broke down why it need not be devalued. Aligning your business goals with personal well-being should be celebrated, not frowned upon. At Lila Life, where Linda helps entrepreneurs integrate business fundamentals and well-being, I advocate for balancing business rigor with a life that brims with joy and purpose.

Navigating Stress Across Arenas

The stress and pressures in corporate America versus entrepreneurship are similar yet distinct. In Linda's own transition from finance to founding Lila Life, the need for strategic transitioning became clear. As she shared, managing basic life skills amidst shifting pressures is a common challenge, prompting us to adapt continuously. Remember, the journey is not just strategic but holistic, encompassing mental health and well-being.

The Implications of the "Sunday Scaries"

During our conversation, Linda and I tackled the "Sunday scaries" – that feeling of dread as a new workweek approaches. By understanding and addressing this mindset, we can flip the narrative, embracing the week as an opportunity to pursue our passion for our business. I'm inspired by Linda's wish for everyone to unlock and share their unique gifts daily, a sentiment I wholeheartedly share.

Wrapping up our chat, the imagery of divine play (“Lila”) in entrepreneurship reminded us of the joy that can be found in business building. It's a path that demands conscious effort, discipline, and a balanced approach to the ups and downs you will inevitably face. Whether you're recentering with meditative practices or refining your daily schedule, the key takeaway is to stay aligned with your purpose and allow it to guide you through the chaos.

Linda's gracious offering of two complimentary sessions on integrative advisory support at Lila Life, alongside the informative Lila Life show podcast, are resources I highly recommend. And, as we closed our discussion, Linda's belief in the power of capital creation struck a chord. It is not just a financial metric; it's a beacon of hope and progress for entrepreneurs worldwide.
