Effortless Living with Marina Pearson


  • Over focusing on a 6 figure business instead of focusing on being happy.

  • Feeling unsatisfied by where you are in your life and business.

  • The illusion that you are less-than others vs the reality of what you already have and where you are actually at.

  • How you can feel and be successful in your life and career, even if you don't have a 6 figure income.

  • The light-bulb moment when you realise you don't NEED to be financially free to be happy. You can be happy right now.

  • We are educated our whole lives to make money, as opposed to collecting assets.

  • The importance of creating an income that can support you, give you assets or give you freedom.

  • Focusing on what sort of lifestyle you want and then figuring out how your business fits within it.

  • How the amount of hours you work is not correlated to the results that you get.

  • Great ideas or solutions come more easily to you when you are in a relaxed, happy, peaceful mind state.

  • Giving yourself permission to be, to stop, to slow down, to take time out from your business.

  • Enjoying your time out without stressing about 'getting stuff done'.

  • Challenging yourself to check out from your business emails and social media so that you have quality time-out.

  • What would life look like if you just did what you liked - right now?

  • How can we experience the joy that we seek and have the quality of life that we want.
