Episode 06: Is Balance Possible? with guest Jenny Stemmerman
In this episode I get to chat with Jenny Stemmerman. Jenny is in her own words “a recovering workaholic” who learned the hard way what it takes to live a balanced, fulfilling life full of purpose, love and faith. Jenny started “Your Life Rocks” podcast, membership site and a brand new app. She’s also got a couple of interesting businesses with her husband that she’ll tell us about. Jenny and I talk about what I call “the dirty B” word. I’m still not crazy about the Illusion of balance and trying to achieve that, but Jenny challenges me with Phillipians 4:13 that says “I can do all things through Christ.”

Is Balance Possible?
Jenny asks me what I think about when I hear the word “balance”. Interesting question, right? Is it attainable? Is it sustainable?
Some thoughts from Jenny:
- Balance does not mean perfection.
- Work/Life Balance is possible
- We all get to define what balance is for ourselves.
- Patience is necessary for Entrepreneurs
Questions to ask yourself:
What are the areas you are trying to balance, grow and excel in?
What would my life feel like if I felt balanced?
We’ve all now heard the phrase “done is better than perfect”. Jenny talks about how this mindset can hurt your business. She also gives us a great question for our spouses and kids to make sure that we showing up where we are most needed.
