How Annie Works and Thinks
- Wake up time: Around 7:00 am
- Core work activities + habits: 1) Showing up, both for herself and for the people she serves. 2) Content creation. 3) Having routines like her morning routine for starting the day.
- Ideal work environment: Sometimes in her newly redone and cozy office, sometimes outside on the patio, but it depends on the kind of work
- Regains focus by: Pressing pause and giving herself a minute to regroup. Asking herself what doesn’t feel right and what needs adjusting.
“The biggest piece is doing the inner work.”
“It’s hard to build a business that actually looks like you want it to look when you don’t actually know any people who are doing it.”
“One of the things I know about myself is if it’s not fun, I won’t do it.”
“Travel has changed me as a human and provided me so many lessons.”
“The vast majority of businesses fail not because it’s a bad idea, it’s because people give up when it gets hard.”
Wanting to open up more? Annie suggests these exercises that she uses in her coaching approach:
1) Take a deep reflection of where you are now and how you got there. Examine past work and life situations, think about what you loved or didn’t love, and then apply that to how it brought you to where you are today.
2) Think about what you really want: not what you think you’re supposed to want, not what you think you’re capable of really having, not what others think you should do – what is it that you, as a human, actually want?
