What is “The Bouncebackability Factor” about?

The Bouncebackability Factor offers the reader seven major burnout causes and their fixes. The main message: Burnout is NOT your fault. This book will prove that to you all while holding your hand and guiding you toward healing. This is a book for everyone who has ever felt FRIED with a special focus on the female entrepreneur. In a world where women are told that they can have it all and be it all, the high achievers are looking down from the top of the mountain and wondering why it doesn’t feel as good as they thought it might. As opposed to focusing on the workplace, increasing positivity, leaning in even more, or productivity measures, The Bouncebackability Factor zooms in on the REAL reasons burnout is so rampant and what every individual can do to end their own personal burnout culture in order to reclaim energy, joy and fulfillment.

Topics include:

  1. What is burnout?
  2. What are the causes of burnout?
  3. How can we heal burnout?

Why should people read it? Who is the book for?

The Bouncebackability Factor is for female entrepreneurs who have built themselves golden cages in the form of successful business that drain the life out of them instead of leaving them feeling fulfilled. It is for everyone who has ever strived for something, gotten it and then realized that the life they thought they’d have after the accomplishment just doesn’t feel as good as it should. It’s for people who are ready to feel seen, heard and validated so that they can make the decision to heal.

Single most important takeaway

“Burnout is not your fault and yet remains your responsibility to heal.”
