Todays guest entrepreneur chatting to us on the Steve Jobs inspired business podcast Join Up Dots is a lady that states on her about page before anything else that she has a love for chocolate.
She also loves country music too.
So I bet a perfect night in is a bubble bath, a box of chockies and a cd full of stories of divorce, dead dogs, and other depressing stories sung with a twang.
But that isn't what this show is going to be about, as todays guest has a fascinating title which I don't understand.
She calls herself a "time strategy visionary" which we will of course find out about during the show.
But what is true about her is that she knew in her heart of hearts that shat she didn't fit into a traditional job, as the love of the tasks she was asked to do was quite often restricted.
She loved what she was doing, but not the pressure that came with doing it in a certain time.
Why should we compress something into a set time fame, just because someone somewhere says that we have to.
But that doesn't mean that she isn't organised, as she loves schedules, hectic days, and sports and so became an Athletic Administrator for a high school.
However, she found that she struggled to balance the 60 hour work weeks with her need for self-care and family time.
And that is where she started to realize her path, and brings her onto the show today
She believes the “I’m so busy” feeling doesn’t have to be a way of life. She is a master at cutting to the heart of overwhelm to help you regain control of your schedule and experience life.
She became a time strategy visionary.
So why is it that we all like to use the "I'm ssoooo busy, and rushed off my feet" badge of honour, even if it goes against our health?
And why do we focus our energies so much on the things that wont ultimately bring us closer to the finishing line?
Well let's find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only super entrepreneur herself Lisa Mallis
