In our last Unpolished Journey episode of 2018, we talk with the wonderful Elle Rowley who is the founder and CEO of the baby carrier company Solly Baby.

Solly Baby is now a globally recognized and award-winning brand, featured in Vogue, Parents Magazine, and the Today Show. She lives with her husband and four children in Carlsbad, California.

Unpolished 17: When the Work Doesn’t Feel Productive

What happens when working doesn’t feel like work? Is it a sign that you’re not actually being productive? Or does it mean that you’re actually accomplishing a step on the path to your larger goal(s)? In this episode we talk about:

  • How to feel productive and accomplished when you’re doing something that doesn’t feel like work
  • The idea of gamification to create milestones that make you feel progress in your business
  • How to structure and label your time to acknowledge what’s contributing to your overall goals
  • Why it’s important to ask yourself what feels right in this moment
  • The need to train your brain to get out of “should” mode
  • The need to balance doing the things that are energizing to fuel you to do the things you don’t love (like folding laundry!)
  • Getting curious about what money we’re leaving on the table by not investing
  • Training our brain to have an abundance mindset

Unpolished 06: A Productive Waste of Time

We all find ourselves saying “I don’t have enough time”, but is that really true? When we really think about it, we actually end up wasting a lot of time—from mindlessly looking at our phones, to being uncomfortable with doing nothing, or even getting caught up in thoughts that aren’t productive. In this episode, we talk through ways of minimizing the anxiety around wasting time and commit to testing out small ways in which we can each be more productive and add more balance to our lives.
