In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneurs Podcast, I speak with the CEO & Founder of, Mindful Return, Lori Mihalich Levin.
How did you feel returning to work after having your children? For Lori, returning back to work after her children was challenging. When she looked around for support, she couldn't find anything that would help her connect with her new identity as a working parent. Let alone do so in a way that was helpful and empowering. So she decided to step up and fill the gap herself.
Listen to this episode to discover how Lori built her business around a young family and a day job. And hear her advice for building a business around your family.
For new parents returning to work, or running a business, Micro-Planning and Micro-Mindfulness practices can make all the difference. - Lori Mihalich-Levin
In this value-packed episode you'll learn:
- The value of creating an advisory board.
- How in becoming a parent, you learn some important leadership skills.
- How to find the time to build your business.
- The role of prioritisation, planning and intention.
- How new parents can benefit from micro-planning.
- The difference a clear intention can make to your day.
- How to reframe your beliefs around selling
...and so much more!
At first I struggled with sales. But it's important to remember that you can't help people if they don't know what you do. If no one knows about your solution, they can't use it. - Lori Mihalich-Levin
