Juggling your passion and career - How to maximise the time spent doing what you love

Working a full time job while trying to build a business is a drag.

Like, a real drag.

Late nights, busy weekends, hours of extra work on your own.

You can get the feeling no one cares, no one is listening.

It’s at this point you’ll probably want to give up, but powering through the doubt is the only way to succeed.

And through careful management and prioritization you can reclaim your work life balance and start dedicating more time to your passion and less to the 9 to 5.

That’s exactly what Lenora Rousseau did and she came on the podcast to talk about balancing commitments, always making time for yourself, and growing a business when you need 28 hours in a day.

Transcribed highlights from the show

Dan: Can you share the words Facebook doesn’t like? What have the ad teams been flagging up and how have you gotten around it?

Lenora: A few tactics I’ve started using to help me get around the Facebook blockers are as follows:

The words and phrases I’m using are becoming more positive. I’m removing terms like trauma and PTSD and I’m talking more about the end goal of my program. Also, I’m doing a better job at finding and speaking directly to my dream client. That way I can hit them with a tailored message that really works.

I re-evaluated my messaging and settled on the term ‘everyday heroes’ . These are the people I’m speaking to and by talking about the solutions I can provide to them I can frame my messaging in a positive light.

From there I tie in my story and the stories from my community.
