Protecting Your Energy With A 4 Day Weekend - EP 49



“I always knew from the time I was little, honestly, that there was something in me that I was meant to bring into the world, and I followed that.”

—  Cailen Ascher


What would your life look like if you had the power to choose your ideal schedule?


Cailen Ascher is a personal growth and business coach with a unique selling point. She’s managed to build a wildly successful business… with a 3-day work week.


Cailen set the goal of a 3-day work week in order to spend more time with her family and had no clue if her idea would actually work — but she knew she wanted to try. She started getting her first high-ticket clients in 2015, and was earning six figures a year by the next year.


Along the way, Cailen learned how to prioritize important activities, batch tasks, create intentional time boundaries, and identify areas where she could outsource. 


“It’s just been this really cool journey of really embracing the idea that you can create the schedule that feels good, work on the hours that feel right and appropriate for you… and still create success that you desire,” she explains. “You don’t have to subscribe to someone else’s version of what it takes to be successful.”


So, how can you create a schedule that perfectly balances your business ambitions and personal needs?


When designing your ideal schedule, it’s important to know your goals. Cailen advises the members of her program to get really clear on their priorities, first and foremost.
