Entrepreneurs glorify the hustle…but what happens when that well-meaning work ethic leads to letting your business run your whole life?
In today’s episode, you’ll learn how to throw your overworking habits out the door and take back control by planning your FUN first! Jovanni Casaus and Todd Walker join me to share how ‘free time’ used to mean whatever was left over after the work day — and how they’ve successfully flipped the script on their schedules.
Tune in for actionable strategies on prioritizing your life and shaping your workflow around that.
Side effects of planning your fun first may include: getting more work done in less time, having more freedom, feeling more energized, and enjoying life more!
Jovanni Casaus is a self educated photographer and entrepreneur. Never quite feeling like he belonged in the 9 to-5 world and always feeling like there was something more to life than just working Jovanni took the leap and started his own business. He went from a struggling C student (at his best) to starting and owning his own professional photography business to now creating an up and coming health and wellness brand (BeyondLMTS) for socially conscious entrepreneurs.” In his quest for knowledge and learning he knew that there had to be a better way to do business, a way that thought about the planet and its inhabitants and not just making money. Jovanni has made it his mission to help those who are using business and themselves as a force for good.
He’s felt the struggles, hardships, countless late nights and the never ending self doubt that plagues most entrepreneurs. With this experience and years of doing things the hard way Jovanni knows the importance in having someone guiding you. This is why he has joined his mentor and coach Steve Napolitan to help build a movement of socially conscious leaders who are thriving in their mission and in their life because with the right person guiding you he knows that at any moment you are just one step away from creating your success.
Todd Walker started his career off in the field of Architecture. He worked for large and small Architecture Firms, Structural Engineers, Acoustical Engineers, and some Telecom Agencies. After almost a decade of working in this industry he decided to go a different route, more digital marketing focused. He graduated from Art school with a design degree. Entropic Studio was born in 2000 as he started growing his client base all around the Bay Area. Entropic did everything from print design and logo design, to digital video projects and documentaries, to developing and implementing marketing strategies. Todd’s goal was to help his clients with their digital marketing strategy and build a network of experienced marketers to support them.
Todd currently lives in Marin with his wife and 2 children (Kyan and Kacia) and dogs (Kayla & Tika). They have a small urban farm where they grow their own vegetables and raise lots of animals, everything from chickens, ducks and quail, to angora rabbits. Todd has been sharing his passion for creativity by teaching an art class to 6th,7th,8th graders once week for the last 6 years. He loves mountain biking in the Marin Watershed (his backyard) and hiking and camping all over the West Coast. He owns a 1991 VW Westfalia Vanagon, and spends time driving all over the state looking for the best camp spots in the mountains or on the coast.
