Overwhelm, stress, worry, anxiety can be the everyday experience of an agency owner. We talk with Gabrielle Treanor, and unpack tools we can use to improve our mental health and better handle the day to day. The questions we ask Gabrielle are all from our Agency Trailblazer community from business owners that are looking for help to work through the daily struggles they have. The most common questions revolve around overwhelm or stem from it and Gabrielle shares wonderfully clear and actionable answers to help us deal with our emotions, feelings and thoughts.

If you are feeling stuck or overwhelmed, please be sure to check out episode 200 where I share my own journey and the steps you can take to improve your agency and lifestyle.
