We asked our honorees about their self-care lifestyle
Shawna’s Self-care Practice
Self-care for me is delegation & boundaries. Being a full-time entrepreneur, wife, and mom, time is valuable for me. Building a team allows me to provide my clients with the best service and take off my cape to take days off to spend time & create memories with my family. Boundaries allow me to ‘close,’ so I’m not always in work mode. These two together have provided a level of peace and success that is priceless.
