Happy Friday, Busy Bees! I have such a treat for you today. Grab your favorite cup of coffee and get ready for this amazing interview with Christophile Konstas!
She's the co-owner of one of my FAVORITE coffee shops in RVA, Perk!
When my husband and I first bought our house in Forest Hill, I went exploring for a new coffee shop nearby. I went to quite a few of them that were great, but when I found Perk, I knew it would be my new go-to!
I'm a sucker for chalkboard signs with beautiful lettering and that's the first thing that caught my eye when I entered the shop! The warm atmosphere, the smell of freshly roasted coffee and the breakfast sandwiches are all on point! I love the local vibe and supporting small businesses in RVA.
This is why I am SO honored and excited to have Christophile as part of the blog series. Can you believe I'm already up to my 6th guest?
Let's get started! Meet Christophile!
Tell us about your responsibilities as a boss babe, wife and mom to your precious boys!
What routines do you have to keep you on task, and productive?
What keeps you motivated?
What are your favorite tools to stay productive and organized?
What do you say to people who look at you and think, "I just don't know how she does it all!"
How do you maintain a positive work/life balance?!
One last piece of advice?
I hope you all enjoyed getting a sneak peek into Christophile's life. I loved how she swore never to enter the food business, only to open a cafe of her own!
I've also seen a common theme among boss babes; they first felt love and support from their husband to pursue their dreams! This makes me so happy to read and something I can relate to. It's so important to have people in your life that believe in you, sometimes more than you believe in yourself! I know that I wouldn't have achieved as much without the encouragement and support of my amazing husband!
This is a huge reason why I started my productivity coaching business. I hope to be that source of accountability, encouragement and support for other people with a big dream.
My last takeaway this week was to "never rest on your laurels." I'm going to be completely transparent here and tell you I had never heard that expression so when I looked it up it rang so true!
I'm reading the Success Principles by Jack Canfield, and he talks about this idea in his book. It means not to stop once you've already reached your dream. If your goal was to double your income next year, and you do it, don't stop there! Keep pushing further and harder.
As Christophile says, "there is always something to learn or expand on!" I love it.
Thanks again for being part of the blog series, Christophile!
Have an amazing weekend busy bees! Thanks for reading!
