Stop Feeling So Tired All The Time: 8 hacks for working women that really work!

If you’re passionate about working on yourself and always improving, it’s natural to want your partner to feel just as excited about the journey, right? In fact, you probably want them right alongside you for the ride.

But sometimes that isn’t the case. Maybe self-improvement doesn’t pique their interest… and you might not understand why. Who wouldn’t want to build a better life?

And while encouraging someone to start their own personal development journey seems like the right thing to do, you’re really just working against the tide.

In this episode, you’ll discover why inspiring others starts with working on yourself and how to feel loved and connected with your spouse (even if they don’t share the same passions as you).

Show highlights include:

  • The real reason self-development doesn’t feel like ‘any other hobby’ and the top three causes for your frustration at home (0:50)
  • Why “finding yourself” can feel lonely and how to find people you can explore self-development with today (9:41)
  • Why persistently asking a spouse to read your favorite book never works – and how to inspire loved ones instead (without bothering them) (11:10)
  • What to do when you start feeling disconnected from your partner and how to restore your relationship (instead of watching the problem grow) (12:40)
