Today's Permission Slip:
Each episode I give you a permission slip - a reminder to give yourself permission to run your business and live your dream life on your own terms.
In today’s episode Andrea shared so many reasons why we should be paying attention to our energy levels and using them to determine how we are spending out time. So I want you to let yourself start paying attention. Listen to yourself and allow yourself to do things that feel good to you and less of the things that don’t.
I give myself permission to listen to your gut and energy levels so you can do more of the things that feel good to you and eliminate the things that don't.
