The Amber Lilyestrom Show

Nov 19, 2019

Today’s guest, uncompromising + inspired business coach who believes it’s ALL possible, Jenny Shih, says we can make money doing the work we love- while also living a life we love. Jenny is an insightful, intuitive, strategic planner with a passion for efficiency and systems.

Jenny started out in corporate America, managing multi-million dollar projects spanning four continents and overseeing dozens- and sometimes hundreds- of team members. While her peers had become increasingly overwhelmed and stressed out, working 60-plus hours a week, Jenny refused to let the same thing happen to her.

Jenny experimented with time management, efficiency, and delegation techniques so she could have a life outside her job. In the process, she learned to manage her staff, get her work done, and handle big projects in 40 hours a week… or less.

In this episode, Jenny dives deep and explains how she can get more done with less stress, less chaos, and almost zero overwhelm. Plus, Jenny describes how to utilize structures + systems to perfect our businesses (and our lives.)
