134: Overcoming Burnout to Do Life on Your Own Terms

with Jessica Fearnley

Work out what’s important, and don’t be afraid to do life on your own terms.

[Jessica Fearnley]

Business Coach and Let’s Conquer Motherhood member Jessica Fearnley is a healthy mum of two young boys and runs a successful business around her and her family’s needs. But getting to where she is today wasn’t always easy. About 8 years ago, and only a few months into her marriage, things came to a head for Jessica. Feeling unwell, exhausted, and completely broken and burnt out after years of working extremely hard and putting pressure on herself, Jessica decided to leave the corporate world and the career she had worked so hard to build.

Emotionally and physically at an all-time low and unable to work, she did the only thing she felt she could do. She took time out and built herself up again one tiny step at the time. When Jessica fell pregnant with her first child, a lot of the symptoms she had experienced as a result of stress and anxiety made an unwelcome come back into her life. And needless to say, her dream of having an idyllic 9 months was totally crushed. After a difficult birth, Jessica struggled to adjust to life with a newborn, and she very quickly realised that she was keen to put her professional experience to good use again, but she had to do it on her terms. So when her son was only 4 months old, Jessica’s business was born.

In this heartfelt episode, you’ll learn how being completely honest with yourself and the way you feel about motherhood can help you understand what really matters to you in life. By the end of this interview, you’ll be inspired to do life on your terms, be true to yourself, and be completely unapologetic about it.
