01: How Did We Get Here?
Welcome to the inaugural episode of the "Bossy & Balanced" podcast, where ambition meets inner peace, and powerful strategies meet mindful living. I'm your host, Carla Erskin, and in today's episode, I'm taking you on a personal journey through the highs and lows that have shaped my path, my purpose, and this very podcast. My story isn't just about success; it's about survival, revival, and the transformative power of self-awareness. It all came to a head with a life-altering trip to the ER, a wake-up call that burnout isn't just a buzzword—it's a boundary crossed. This experience became the catalyst for a profound pivot in both my life and my business.  I'll share how the relentless pursuit of success led me to a breaking point, and the invaluable lessons learned in the throes of burnout. You'll hear how this moment of crisis sparked a deep dive into the world of work-life balance and productivity coaching, not just as a career, but as a calling. This episode is more than my story; it's a mirror to the struggles many of us face in the quest for achievement. Each week on this podcast I'll also share the strategies and mindset shifts that have been pivotal in my journey from overwhelmed to in control, from chaos to clarity. Join me as I lay bare the good, the bad, and the transformative, and how I've come to redefine what it means to be both bossy and balanced. Whether you're a high-achiever grappling with your own boundaries or an entrepreneur searching for sustainable success, this episode is a first step towards a life where productivity and peace coexist. Tune in weekly to embark on this journey with me, as we explore the true essence of balance, the art of setting boundaries, and the transformative power of tuning into our own needs and rhythms. Welcome to "Bossy & Balanced" - where you can have the best of both worlds.
