Addicted to Working with Megan Hale

Business Inside Out

Normalizing the entrepreneurial experience one real conversation at a time. Get comfortable, grab your favorite beverage, and join me for a behind-the-scenes look at the mindset, grit, and strategy that creates business success from the inside out.

This week’s interview hit home for me, and I have a feeling it might for many of you as well.

I had the pleasure of sitting down and talking with Megan Hale, psychotherapist turned coach and the founder of Wild & Holy, a vibrant community of coaches, therapists, helpers, & healers. 

We talked about the meaning of success, workaholism, and slowing down to have, create, and BE more. Megan opened up with us about her personal experience with workaholism, something I very much relate to and have had to shift through myself.

There’s a fine line between healthy passion, obsession, and workaholism. 

Megan got real about what workaholism looks like and some possible causes. She also outlined three steps we can all follow to help create spaciousness.

“The antithesis to workaholism is spaciousness.”

As someone who’s been on both sides of the fence, it was refreshing and helpful to hear Megan’s account. 

The best part? Post-workaholism, Megan now makes significantly more money in her business even though she puts in a fraction of the hours. That’s a testament to the lie and grip workaholism can have on us and the power of creating some mental space.

For those of you who are new to Megan’s world, you’re in for a treat!

Join Megan and me for an honest and in-depth look at workaholism, how it shows up, the red flags to watch for, how it affects our relationships, businesses, and life, and in closing how to shift from overwhelmed and overworked into flow and joy.
