Mari and I talk about her journey as a very creative child, to the world of performing, and then onto her role supporting other creatives. We talk about rejection as a creative (something we all experience), creative self-care, and creating on your own terms. 

Words you’ll hear…

“Affirmations lead us to goals, they lead us to the changes we want to make in our life.”

“When we give our mind space to relax, answers show up.”

“Creativity is a present moment experience.”

“I think we forget how important mindfulness is to creativity.”

She has shared her Sustaining Creativity work at conferences, Universities and in workshops across the country.

Revisited: Reclaiming Your Time with Becca Rich

Over the next few weeks, we’re revisting some of our favourite episodes related to crerativity and self-care. This week we’re revisiting Amy’s chat with Becca Rich, our favourite Holistic Time Coach!

Original Description:

In this episode I’m chatting with Becca Rich, a holistic time coach who helps busy, ambitious entrepreneurs reclaim their time and combat time scarcity.

How many times have you said or thought “there’s never enough time”? I’ve thought it MANY times – today. While scarcity mindset in terms of money is something we hear about often, time scarcity was a brand new concept for me and one I really needed to hear.

What Becca shares in this episode is absolutely game-changing for entrepreneurs and creatives who feel like they’re always struggling with time. Time is finite, but the way we view our time can make it feel like there truly is more hours in the day.

About Becca

Becca Rich is a holistic time coach and consultant supporting conscious yet ambitious business owners heal time scarcity and leverage their unique way of operating, so they can unapologetically live and work their way. As an engineer turned mindfulness teacher and holistic coach, her mission is to blow up the hustling status quo and help folks discover tools and mindsets authentic to them. Becca’s deeply committed to the ripple effect that happens when we begin to reclaim our time. If you’re interested in her work, be sure to connect with Becca!
