Mindset for Success When Working From Home,
with erin tennant
Erin Tennant of Columbus, Ohio, is the owner of Grow Well Coaching. She is a mindset and weight loss coach for wellness who meets remotely with her network of local clients and those from other regions. She built her coaching business after losing 130 pounds to share how she's transformed her mindset from reactive, ready to sit on the couch eating, to an intentional mindset that doesn't automatically
think about food, even when she goes through the kitchen.
In this episode, Erin shares how she has built a routine for herself where she practices time blocking for her morning and afternoon work schedule and then takes a two-hour lunch each day to get out of the house and hit the gym. Time blocking prevents her from getting distracted with household tasks. She recognizes that she performs best when she keeps conversational work, such as interviews, to the earlier morning hours. She then reserves her afternoons for focused and active listening when meeting with clients. Erin and her husband workout of the same office space in their basement, which works well for them since they rarely have overlapping meetings.
Erin views her brain and body as tools and likes to remind her brain of why she loves working from home. Many of her clients work from home for various reasons, some temporarily and others permanently. She talked about some challenges she and her clients face regarding motivation, scheduling, and transitioning to and from the home-office setting. Erindescribes herself as someone who specializes in helping people live a better quality of life, based on improving their wellness through their relationship with food, their bodies, and themselves. Whether they're "looking to lose weight, create healthy habits/behavior changes, improve their perspective, attitudes, emotional management, time management, decision making, or problem-solving skill, through the lens of wellness," she is ready to help. Erin has personally invested in personal coaching for her own life and has found it helps her manage her mindset and emotions to improve her own work-from-home experience, as it can be isolating.
