We had the good fortune of connecting with Angie Wisdom and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Angie, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
Before my coaching career, there wasn’t much balance. I am a challenger by nature, very competitive, so I was more concerned with winning and conquering goals at all costs. I learned over time that lack of balance was actually holding me back from my full potential. Now I know that the work-life balance allows me to bring more to the table for my clients, family, and myself. I am far more capable of accomplishment when I’m in a balanced state than I ever was with a head-down grind-away mentality.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Angie Wisdom Coaching & Consulting exists to help people ditch the default way of living and create a life or business that they love without overwhelming stress. I’ve been down this road myself. I bring 25 years of business experience to the table. I’ve built a business the hard way with stress, exhaustion, and overwhelm, and I’ve built a second business with balance, values, and a chosen mindset. Most people’s default way is overwhelming stress and sacrifice, but it’s doesn’t have to be. I’m blessed that I get to sit with talented, hard-working, motivated people who are looking to do it differently every day. It’s rewarding to see people grow and find out what they are really capable of.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
When you live in Socal people, always want to visit! I love good food, from bakery treats and coffee to dinners out. I always want to take my guests to a hundred different places to eat. If you stayed with me, I would take you to Coffee Dose for the best coffee, including the cup with personality. Breakfast would be at Plums; they have an amazing Dutch Boy and peppered bacon. We’d take a Duffy boat out on the harbor and stop at Billy’s for lunch and Mia Tais. Wrapping up the evening at A restaurant. Another day would include golf and dinner at Mesa Verde Country Club. SItting on the 18th green watching people come in over the water. We’d have to spend a day at the beach, too, riding bikes on the boardwalk and stopping at some of the classic pit stops like Mutt Lynch’s. I live on the Back Bay, so the 12-mile loop is a beautiful ride through a bird sanctuary that I love to share with visitors. I can’t forget Bear Flag. I always take guests there for the best fish tacos and poke. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I owe a ton of gratitude to my family for their support. Starting a business can take up a lot of space and has its ups and downs. My husband was the most encouraging and supportive person through that process while launching and building my business. I sometimes joke that he believed in me more than I did!
