Confession: I'm Overwhelmed, Here's What I'm Doing About It and How Is Puppy Porn Involved?

In this episode of "The B Word," I'm back, and boy, do I have a story for you!

 So, picture this: it's January, and I'm at this awesome retreat, feeling all pumped up for the new year. Then bam! I get a call from my husband, Jeff. Now, Jeff's the kind of guy who avoids doctors like the plague, but this time, he's in such excruciating pain that we end up rushing him to the ER. Turns out, it's kidney stones. 🩺 Yeah, those little devils.

Fast forward to April, and Jeff's still battling those stones. Meanwhile, my daughter Emily breaks her toe at a trampoline park, and not just any break—90 degrees straight down. So, yeah, that's the health drama in the Bolt household.

But wait, there's more! I've hired new people to help with the business, and let's just say, one of them dropped the ball big time. Cue the stress and overwhelm. I mean, trying to juggle family health crises and business woes? It's been a rollercoaster, to say the least.

But I'm not one to stay down for long. I've got my strategies for tackling overwhelm, like going back to reading for pleasure (Sarah J. Moss, anyone?), leaning on friends for support (shoutout to Christina!), and dialing back on social media scrolling (bye-bye, puppy videos 🐾🐾🐾 ).

Oh, and let's not forget the power of music. I'm talking Lauren Daigle and Zac Brown Band soothing my soul while I tackle chores around the house.

Chances are, if you're an entrepreneur, you're likely gong to face overwhelm yourself at some point. It coud be business related, family related, or like me...both. So let's have a chat about how exactly I'm handling it so that you can do the same when you inevitably find yourself in this season of life too. We've all been there my friend
