Most companies talk a good game about work/life balance but do very little to actually help make that a reality for their employees.
It feels like a myth.
So, if you want your life back (without the risk of getting fired, demoted, divorced, or losing your mind), you need to find a solution.
And I can help.
I'm Sarah Finney
I help end of the rope executives, managers and 9 to 5’ers find the unicorn of the modern world – the balance between work and a satisfying home life.
(and why it’s NOT your fault)
Technology, longer working hours, a competitive workplace and ever-increasing demands have over-taken our days and blurred the lines between the end of the workday and our personal time.
I’m owning up here – I was part of the problem! I worked for Microsoft for 11 years and I saw firsthand how our marketing messages disrupted people’s lives.
The technology that was meant to liberate us has actually suffocated us.
Technology has made it even harder to discern where the lines start and stops because you can be connected no matter where you are, at any time, any place. You can work from ANYWHERE, ANYTIME.
These are great marketing messages when you are selling productivity tools, but they are reeking havoc on people’s personal lives. It is messing with your well-being.
You don’t have to miss you kiddo’s sporting event because you have work to do. You can bring your work with you and do it while you “watch” them play!
How Awesome is that? Except that it is not.
There are no boundaries in place to limit emails. There are unnecessary meetings clogging calendars. There are multiple priorities that ALL need attention (the very definition of a priority is ONE not many).
There is an unspoken expectation that you need to answer emails right away – especially if it is from your boss, no matter what time of day it is. You must be easily reachable for the 911’s that happen all the time.
Is This You?
- You are anxious, overwhelmed, exhausted, walking on eggshells and always wondering what fresh Hell awaits you as soon as you wake up in the morning, but you check your email anyway
- You are stretched too thin, expected to work on multiple priority projects at once, but are never able to find the time to do them because your days are jammed with meetings
- Your evenings and weekends turn into work time because you need to play catch up before more gets added to your plate
- You “seem” to be the only person who can do the job. You have lots of “new opportunities” to prove yourself, but how can you do that when you are completely maxed out?
- You worry that if you don’t take on a project you will be evaluated badly and could lose your job because downsizing and reorgs happen regularly
- During your personal time, your thoughts are consumed with work. You can’t shut it off and it is your main topic of conversation at home
In fact, being overworked and under-utilized is becoming your main problem, that and having other people in charge of your agenda has created a stifling situation for you.
The first step is to recognize the problem you are facing.
That is where I come in.
It is 100% possible for you to take back control of your life and you don’t have to quit your job, lose credibility or live on a remote island to do so.
I work with people just like you to show them how to keep their job and income while at the same time having a life, work-free or fewer weekends and 8 hours of sleep every night (if that’s what floats your boat.)
How much longer are you willing to allow yourself to continue to stay where you are at?
Imagine your life where you get to choose what is essential for you, being the owner of what you choose to do, what projects and activities you participate in, who you choose to hang out with, how to discern what “opportunities” are the RIGHT ones for you, being focused and completing projects that are going to make you proud and are in alignment with what you want to produce in the world.
Imagine being deeply connected to your family, your spouse, partner, kids, friends because you know how you can be your best.
Imagine enjoying your life and saying a Hell YES! to the things that are right for you and a Hell NO! to the things that are not (and not feeling badly or judged for saying it).
Imagine being in control of it all.
You absolutely can be.
