I know that I’ve been feeling burnt out, and I’ve also had to grieve the loss of someone close to me during the pandemic, which I know so many of you have too. The loss of a loved one often causes us to realign and reevaluate what’s really important in life, so let’s do a little bit of that realigning and reevaluating together.
In this episode, my guest, Tricia Chinnici, and I are getting real and raw. We’re sharing our experiences with grief as well as burnout, transitions, and seasons of life. Grief and burnout don’t come with handbooks on how to deal with them, so we want to share some of what we’ve learned with the hope that it could help you too.
Tricia Chinnici is a coach for sensitive and creative small business owners, and also the host of the podcast “It’s Not Business, It’s Personal.” She was a creative director for 7 years before deciding to lean into her Highly Sensitive superpowers and leave the burnout behind. Now as a successful business coach, her goal is to flip the script on how we talk about business by removing the toxic hustle culture and one-size-fits-all mentality and adding more focus on creativity, fulfillment, authenticity, empathy, and mental health. As an artist, HSP, and Enneagram 4 she truly believes that you don’t have to change who you are to be successful and that your business should work for *you.*
What We Cover in This Episode:
- Recovering from the burnout that has lasted years
- Giving yourself time and grace to grieve
- Ways to deal with your grief
- Allowing grief to be a season of transition
- Using work to numb yourself and hide from emotions
- Deciding what you want to share or not share with your audience when you’re healing
- Avoiding creating a codependent relationship with your business
- The value of spontaneity and variety
I love how transparent Tricia is and how deep the conversation gets in this episode. We’ve all been through a lot over the last two years, and we want to help you get through it. It’s okay to grieve without trying to grow in every area of your life at the same time.
