You Can Have It All: The Four Burners Theory Re-Worked

2.png

Have you heard of The Four Burners Theory. It says that there's four areas of in everyone's life: family, friends, work, health, known as the four burners. And in order to be successful, you need to shut off one of those burners. And, in order to be really successful, you should shut off two. In this bonus episode, we re-work The Four Burners Theory because we believe you actually can have it all.

We chat about turning this theory instead into what we call the "Circle of Life Theory", because we believe that in order to be successful we need to change it from the limiting beliefs of The Four Burners Theory of turning off burners to a decisive abundance of life and joy approach. You can have it all and we want to be right alongside with you when you do it. Let's get started!
