Prioritizing Self Care in Your Biz - feat. Taryn Gross
When you're working your booty off to nurture your biz, it can be really hard to take some time to nurture YOURSELF. Today we're talking with Taryn Sutherland-Gross from Twinkle and Toast about why making self-care a habit should be non-negotiable and dispelling the myth that self-care is selfish. We discuss how self-care leads to a business that allows you to serve, share and give MORE of yourself by prioritizing peace over hustle, and flip the script by brainstorming ways you can love on your clients by offering a form of self-care for others. YOU are the most important tool in your biz, so why not start treating yourself like it?
First things first: let’s dispel some self-care myths and address the elephant in the room. Self care isn’t selfish! Being selfish doesn’t create a way for you to share, serve, and give MORE of yourself, whereas self-care yields these things because you are pouring from a FULL cup!
