What if I told you that you don't need to sacrifice your wholeness at the altar of busyness? 

 


We have a tendency to compartmentalize ourselves. We often focus so much on one area of our lives—especially if we're entrepreneurs!—that we forget about everything else...or everything else suddenly becomes less attractive to us than our business. However, you should not sacrifice your wholeness on the altar of busyness!

 


In today's episode, we're joined by Josh Haynam, a lifelong entrepreneur who started his first company at age 15 and never looked back. He's the co-founder of Interact, a marketing tool used by 10,000 small businesses throughout the world. Josh bootstrapped the company with a small team to become a major brand name in the world of marketing. 

 


In addition to the idea of wholeness, Josh talks about how to use quizzes to make that good hard cash and how to maintain great boundaries—even when you are spiraling down into burnout. Tune in!

 


In this episode, you'll learn:

 


The benefits of Interact, software for making marketing quizzes
Why a lack of boundaries can lead to burnout
Why you can’t sacrifice your wholeness at the altar of busyness
How to build curiosity for things you might not be curious about just yet
How to maintain boundaries by having things you truly enjoy outside of work
