We’ve heard a lot about work-life balance. On one end, the non-stress believers say that you should seek balance actively. On the other, “hustle” culture says you can sleep when you’re dead. There’s no such thing as balance. Do more. Faster. Better. Today’s guest says that maybe you can have “more” in your life WITHOUT seeking balance. What if we sought harmony instead? Tina Wells has had to apply this lesson to her own life, having created her first company at age 16 and suffering her first burnout by age 27. She’ll share how she found both success and a life on today’s show.
In our headline segment, actor Jeremy Renner is under our spotlight. He recently was featured in many pieces after sharing an Instagram story detailing his march to recovery after an early-January snow plow accident. What does Renner’s disability have to do with your money? We’ll share…and it’s a LOT!
Plus, of course, we’ll answer a Stacker’s call to the Haven Life line, and Doug will be sure to top everything off with his world-famous trivia (well, maybe only Texarkana-famous…but who’s counting?).
