Find Immediate Balance in a Fast Paced World

Do your days often feel overwhelming? Does your life resemble a three ring circus? If so, you're not alone. 

Many of us get trapped in patterns of self made busyness to avoid uncertainty. 

We fill our day with menial tasks to avoid doing the important ones.  

When your busyness is tied to your worthiness, it's hard not to take yourself seriously at work. 

Join us in this comedic adventure to expose the busyness patterns that overwhelm you and others.   

Together we will beat back busyness once and for all when you discover that you are not the problem you are the solution.

About Motivational Speaker Jody Urquhart

Is your Audience Worn out? Exhausted? Bleary Eyed?

People experiencing burnout often don't see any hope of positive change. 

But their circumstances do not define who they are. They only remind them how far they have come and what they can achieve. We don't get better despite challenges in our work but because of them.

When your busyness is tied to your worthiness, change is all-consuming. 

My goal is to help people leave burnout behind, realize their potential and become the best version of themselves. 

Hustle Hangover

Make Passion Your Priority & Leave Struggle Behind

Do workloads hang over your head from one day to the next? Is hustling around chasing after problems your daily priority? Does your day leave you feeling worn out? If so, you may have a hustle hangover.
