Show Notes

Juggling everything can be hard now that you are a caregiver.  Before caregiving you were working on those personal and professional goals and now this caregiver life has complicated things.  In today’s episode, I want to talk about you, the working caregiver or the business owner caregiver or the student caregiver.  

Many of my clients and caregiver friends are just that.  They are working their professional career and now their parent needs them.   They are in their master degree program and their spouse is fighting cancer.  They are an entrepreneur and juggling time to take care of their sibling.  

Whether you choose to continue your goals or passions while caregiving or you financially can’t quit your job because you need the insurance, I want to talk in this podcast about managing it all with less stress.  Figuring out ways to reduce burnout and enjoy the journey.  

I’m here in this episode today to say, you can be an effective caregiver, work your job/career, run your business and be your best self.  You can pursue your goals and passion during this season if that’s what you want or have to do.  Life doesn’t have to stop.  You can manage this caregiving life.  

There are many caregivers that do this everyday.   The successful caregiver focuses on 

  • what they want,  
  • what they need 
  • a caregiver plan 

When you become a caregiver manager vs a go-all-in caregiver, you find that you can find joy in the challenges.
