If you’re an interior designer or any kind of creative entrepreneur and you feel like you’ve got way too much on your plate, this episode is for you. My guest today has been where you are, but she changed course and now runs a successful business from a beautifully clear headspace, and she’s here to share how to find where your time and energy are going to waste in your business.

Desi Creswell helps interior designers build thriving business without stress and overwhelm. She’s a Master Certified life and business coach.

Desi is sharing how to see where you’re overdoing, overthinking, or indulging in any form of ‘overing’ without achieving anything, and we’re discussing how to plug the time and energy leaks in your business by letting things be good enough and trusting yourself in the process.
