Slow Living Conversations

Hygge is a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment.

I find myself gravitating towards this experience more and more.

Time away with hubby, afternoon tea with my parents, wine with friends, long easy walks, patting the dogs.

Maybe I am getting ready for retirement but I still love what I do, coaching business owners and business unit heads in business acumen and strategy.

It’s not about stopping, it’s about blending the work you need and love to do to earn a living but also enjoying things more and especially ‘Quality Time’ with people you care about. This may not be your ‘Love Language’ but it is mine.

I learned about Love Languages from two of my clients who have shown this logical, rational, rather unemotional person how to feel and develop a warm heart.

The one lady in particular has been helping me to “Find my Sunshine” this year. We have a ‘Value Exchange’ arrangement which is a mutually beneficial coaching arrangement where she coaches me in techniques to find my sunshine (warmth, compassion, joy) and discover more about myself. I coach her in strategy, planning and financial techniques (the hard skills) to “Unlock her Planner” which, as a creative, emotional being she can find difficult.

I really believe in these value arrangements where no payment is made but time and energy is exchanged and you both grow as a result.

I do both encourage a new business owner to try these especially with coaches, virtual assistants or social media/marketing experts but I also caution not to do too many. After all you do need to make money right? For a conversation on this topic you are welcome to #JustAskLinda
