Ep. 79: Exploring Slow Entrepreneurship & Redefining What It Means to Hustle with Sarah Magidoff
Just as our bodies are designed to go through cycles of activity, play and rest, our businesses should be, too. In this episode, Sarah Magidoff helps us adopt the #SlowEntrepreneur mindset; a movement she started to help other business owners combat burnout, create better boundaries and add more margin in their daily life for the things that matter most. EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS & TOPICS DISCUSSED: Sarah shares her career journey and how a desired lifestyle change led her to the work she does today. Sarah explains what inspired her to coin the term “slow entrepreneur” and how this philosophy is combating the one-dimensional “hustle” mindset that has been modelled for us in the entrepreneurial space. We discuss the concept of ‘rest’ and how it can actually be looked at as an active vs. inactive practice. Sarah suggests replacing the word ‘rest’ with ‘re-charge’ to help us better shift our perspective. Sarah encourages preparation and communication in conjunction with setting boundaries in order to combat any feelings of guilt that we might experience from doing so. We explore Sarah’s innovative workflow and the boundaries she has put into place to honour her own version of slow entrepreneurship, like her weekly ‘wandering wednesdays’ and quarterly ‘insta vacays’. Sarah shares her vision for the future of the slow entrepreneur movement and what we can expect to see from her in the coming months. Sarah leaves us with one simple action item to kickstart our slow entrepreneur journey.
