Today’s Lively Show episode packs in a lot of great takeaways on several topics including streamlining your career (or business), transitioning from a day job, and facing cancer as an entrepreneur.

To talk about these topics, I asked the spunky and energetic Michelle Ward, the When I Grow Up Coach. She’s a life coach, “boob cancer” survivor, and friend that I am honored to have on the show.

Though the topic of cancer is discussed, the tactics and steps that Michelle took could apply to anyone going through a difficult health challenge or even perhaps a small business maternity leave.

This episode is perfect for those who want to learn more about how to handle difficult health challenges while self-employed, or who are feeling overwhelmed by the wide range of their careers.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL FIND OUT ABOUT

 

  • How Michelle’s broadway dream brought her to a corporate job and eventually to life coaching.
  • How Michelle baby stepped her way out of a corporate job and into her coaching practice full-time.
  • How “boob cancer” (as Michelle calls it) affected her life and coaching practice.
  • The policies and boundaries Michelle created to accommodate her treatment (these actions can apply to any entrepreneur with a serious illness, life change, or maternity leave).
  • How Michelle maintained the same income year over year – with cancer treatments and less coaching.
  • Why streamlining your career or business at times can be a powerfully positive choice. (35:30)
  • What Michelle would tell someone just starting out on this journey.
