Take Back Your Time...The Guilt-Free Guide to Life Balance | Ep. 217 with Christy Wright
Play • 38 min

Are you addicted to productivity and sometimes feel slightly out of balance? I thought so! In today's show, we talk “balance” and about doing what matters most versus worrying about how much to get done. My guest Christy Wright, a Dave Ramsey personality, is a busy mom with three young kids, a bustling career, and she knows what it’s like to be stretched too thin.  


Christy redefines balance and gives a clear path on how to achieve balance and be guilt-free. This is a power-packed episode full of great tips and strategies to win the day, one day at a time. 


Specifically, here is what we cover in today’s episode:

- How to become balanced in an unbalanced world.

- Life balance isn’t about doing everything for an equal amount of time; it's about doing the right thing at the right time.

- Four reasons why we feel out of balance.

- The solution to fighting too many fires.

- Prioritize your day and recognize what is most important.

- Christy shares the best habits to own her day.

- The five steps to the path to balance.

- How to take back your life from your to-do list.


“It’s not about productivity, it's about doing what matters.”
