“If time management was the real cure for busy-ness, we wouldn't all still be busy.”
— Alli Worthington

Greetings, SuperFriends, and welcome to today’s show.

Today we are joined by Alli Worthington, the author of the book Breaking Busy: How to Find Peace & Purpose in a World of Crazy. She’s also the founder of BlissDom, the world’s largest international women’s business conference, the cofounder of the BlissFul Media Group, and the executive Director of the Propel Women leadership initiative. You may have even seen her on The Today Show, Good Morning America, or featured in Sheryl Sandberg’s website, Lean In.

In this episode, we talk about how to break the endless cycle of busy-ness to discover your life’s true meaning and purpose. Given that I’ve recently released a course with one of my mentors on the topic of creating a meaningful life, you guys probably know that this topic is something near and dear to my heart – and so I was very excited to learn from someone as accomplished and thought-provoking as today’s guest. It’s absolutely PACKED with actionable tips and tools that you can implement TODAY to be more productive and feel less stressed. I think you’re going to love it.
