My guest today is Dara Paoletti – a certified life coach – who specializes in helping women beat burnout and get their life back.
Dara’s been there. She experienced feeling burnout herself. In this episode, she shares her own story – how she felt and why, for a long time, she thought what she was experiencing was “normal”.
Dara has spent time studying burnout and she shares some common misconceptions around this topic – including who’s most susceptible to burnout. I’ll tell you, is not who I thought it would be!
