Lara McCulloch is, in two words, a shift disturber. She’s on a mission to change women entrepreneurs from overworked and overwhelmed into free and fulfilled.
This spark was lit in her early 20s when her addiction to the hustle first began. For ten long years, as a Brand Consultant for multinational corporations, she spent her days and nights sifting through knee deep piles of client briefs, hopping on and off of planes, forgetting to eat because she was too busy to feel hunger and multi-tasking like an expert 5-pin, one handed juggler.
And the payoff?
Sweaty, dirty and sore, she had clambered up the corporate ladder, shattered the glass ceiling and was perched precariously on top. Only to realize she was the unhappiest she’d ever been in her life.
With this lesson, she started her own award-winning consulting company. One that is run off of part time hours, generates lucrative and consistent cashflow, has launched a global speaking career and requires absolutely no investment in marketing.
She is now the antithesis of hustle. She’s living the lifestyle she wants AND can actually enjoy it.
Lara has created the Start Some Shift Academy to help women entrepreneurs learn how to build their own lifestyle businesses and once and for all boycott the hustle.
In this episode of the Boss Mom Podcast, Lara and Dana chat about her drive to ditch the hustle and her retainer based business model. They also talk about traveling with kids, priorities, and why Lara isn't currently reading any books. Let's drive right in.
