“I am done glorifying busyness. Busyness is not the new chic. It is not business goals or a cause for celebration…Burnout is not my final destination” - La’Vista Jones


In this episode of The Widest Net, La’Vista Jones joins me today to talk about self-care and her upcoming book, The BOSS™ Shift which is a book she wrote for women who are ready to make a shift towards living life on their own terms because they are no longer willing to sacrifice themselves in pursuit of the work they love doing.

La’Vista is the  founder and CEO of 31Marketplace and calls herself a corporate dropout turned entrepreneur. She is on a mission to challenge women who are at the crossroads of vision and overwhelm to cultivate their own definition of success by implementing the BOSS™ Shift framework she created:

B: Prepare for Battle - Resist the expectation of being overworked as the only path for success.

O: Call out Overwhelm - Acknowledge the suffocating weight of the overwhelm you’re currently dealing with.

S: Optimize Systems - Leverage efficient and automated systems to do the heavy lifting in your life and business. 

S: Practice Self-Care - Engage in deeply resonate, self-care rituals that nurture your soul.


Here’s what you can expect from this episode: 

  • Discussing what BOSS stands for and what it means to her
  • What signs to look for when you know you’re ready to implement new healthy habits into your business
  • The socialization and culture of overwork in our society
  • How systems and self-care go hand in hand
  • La’Vista’s own experience with burnout

Remember we all need each other - life and work is better together.
