There you are, working diligently to get something done, sticking to your commitment to pick up the tasks your coworkers or employees needed help with. But now it’s 7 p.m. on Friday, and you would rather be able to stop working and get the essential moment to recharge that you know you need. You ask yourself, “Why did I say yes to doing this?” 

If this feels familiar to you, here’s what I want you to know: Women have not been taught how to make decisions. Instead, we’ve been taught how to default. 

In this episode, Karlee shares her process for making fully-informed decisions and provides the tools to avoid slipping into a default “yes.” At the heart of it, this episode is all about up-leveling yourself and reclaiming your time, energy, life and best work. Karlee provides case studies of how real women shift their decision-making process, and how it’s opened up new doors for them on the spot. 

Karlee covers three main topics in this episode: what causes women to default rather than discern, the four acts of discernment that allow women to feel satisfied with their careers and lives, and a step-by-step process for making "right decisions". 

Tune in to this episode to kick off a lifelong conversation about your own discernment, and begin the journey into a more beautiful career and life than you have imagined.
