Episode #5 - 4 Simple Ways to Create Healthy Boundaries While Being an All-In Professional

with Kelly Bennett

Show Notes

Welcome back to another episode of On Fire Empire. In the very first episode, we spoke to my sister, Mindy, about the payoff of going all in at work and challenging the conventional wisdom that tells us not to get personally invested in our customers or our clients.

In this episode, we are going to talk about how we can have it all, how we can buck the system and go all in while creating healthy boundaries at the same time so that we can maintain our personal wellbeing without losing ourselves in the process.

Boundaries ensure that you’re giving safe solid advice while also exercising really good judgment. To do this, there are four simple techniques, which we will unpack in this episode to help you implement it into your own business. We also dive into the benefits of having a good system in place, the importance of empowering your clients, and why having extra margin in your schedule is paramount. So if you want to know how to get personally invested at work without losing all your marbles, stay tuned to today’s episode!
