Even wicked-smart women sometimes fall into the trap of workaholism. And for many of us, overworking becomes an escape. We use work as an excuse to ignore the fact that we’re not happy.
So, how does a workaholic learn to create boundaries and make intentional decisions around what we want life to look like?
Karin Freeland is a certified Life and Reinvention Coach on a mission to help women transform their lives. Karin created the signature EDIT Your Life program to empower women with the tools and techniques to conquer our fears and find purpose. She is also the author of The Ins and Outs of My Vagina, a comedic memoir recounting the mishaps and misadventures she’s had over the past 40 years with a special partner in crime—her vagina, named V.
On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Karin joins Anjel to explain how she became a workaholic and share the question that inspired her to leave her corporate job. She reflects on how The Secret motivated her to finish her memoir and explores the idea of having a dialogue with your vagina central to the book.
