Episode #72: The Balance Project with author Susie Orman Schnall

Let’s face it – some women just look unstoppable. They raise great kids and maintain a killer relationship, while still driving toward their own goals and dreams. And honestly, they sparkle with joy in everything they do. Susie Orman Schnall, our very first guest on the Brilliant Balance podcast, got so curious about these women that she decided to interview a bunch of them!

She curated those interviews in a series called The Balance Project which then inspired her novel by the same name. In fact, Susie has published three novels, winning a number of awards along the way, all while raising three boys and maintaining a great marriage with her husband. She approaches everything she does with a deep sense of purpose AND exuberant joy. You’ll love her.

In this episode, you’ll hear what she learned from the interviews she conducted and how she maintains her own level of brilliant balance:

  • How to keep intense projects from eroding your family life. ([5:30])
  • Why being a “hot mess mom” isn’t something to be proud of. ([9:45])
  • What to make space for in your life to enrich your relationships, career and health. ([13:25])
  • What you can learn from doing intense workouts and athletic events. ([33:55])
