Musings of a Former Overachieving Workaholic

Musings of a Former Overachieving Workaholic

By Holly Lewis

As an overachiever, it's highly likely that focus isn't your problem. In fact, it's likely that you can ignore just about everything in pursuit of your goal....your health, your family, and your well-being. You might even be a workaholic. I know I was.

This way of life leads to burnout. Even though outward appearances say you have it all, you wonder why you are not happy. Something is missing.

This podcast will help you learn ways to have a healthier relationship with work and achievement so that you can create a life that's balanced, healthy, and full of joy.
