Have you ever been seconds away from drifting into a sweet sleep only to be startled awake by a series of dings from a client texting or calling to book an appointment or order product?
Or how about receiving a message on your personal social media feeds with a comment of passive aggressive nature related to a photo or experience you shared or a message urgently asking why they haven’t received a response to their email/message/text (despite it being hours past your times of business operation)?
Whether it’s these online scenarios or having an uncomfortable experience inside your spa (i.e., the client who keeps talking far past closing time or the one who tries to convert you to their religion), the root cause is the same: a lack of boundaries.
As someone who has extensive experience working in various facets of the service industry (more on that in a bit), and has worked through “people-pleasing” tendencies, I’m here to be your boundaries BFF, because let’s face it, there will always be someone to test them, and you’re the only one who can enforce them.
So let’s get into it…

If you’ve ever had a repeated positive or negative thought that came to fruition, you’ve seen neuroplasticity in action proving the statement that “neurons that fire together wire together” to be true.

I want to be here on Earth, creating memories and making a positive impact on the world far into my old age.
On my quest for a high quality of life and longevity, I turn to what I trust most, science.
Particularly, science at the cellular level.
In regards to aging, the process of telomere testing, which are the chromosomes within our DNA that allow cells to divide, fortify or secure our genetic data, and control aging, gives us insight into how our bodies are moving through the aging process.
The perfectionist and the procrastinator both get stuck with making forward progress, just from opposite ends of the spectrum.
Then, beyond your personality characteristics, comes the unavoidable juggling act of being booked in the treatment room, constantly studying to stay on the up and up on the latest and greatest trends and science in the esthetic industry, managing a business, and, oh, yes that thing called a personal life.
With all these factors at play, it’s no wonder you might be feeling bogged down and unable to make the strides you desire for your business growth or in your personal freedom. However, when you know how to harness your superpowers and embrace the concept of outsourcing, you stand to not just gain back more time, but also increased income and sanity (and who doesn’t want more of that?!).
Here are my favorite ways to maximize your time with the power of outsourcing:
