Your Livelihood Spirit Balance… Your Choice if it’s Out of Whack…


So yesterday in the office, a colleague of mine was complaining about how overworked he was telling me he hasn’t had a free weekend in over 2 months.

That’s absolutely absurd. Of course the Mindset Transformation Coach in me kicked in…

Management doesn’t force you to work extra time “unpaid”. Management isn’t going to do anything to help so long as you continue to put the time in unquestioning.

You choose to continue to be a people pleaser. Instead of showing management that the work can’t get done in the allotted time you continue to let your Livelihood Spirit Balance be out of whack. You choose to work instead of taking time to spend with your 2 little children at home.

🤔 Is work your priority or is your Livelihood Spirit Balance your priority?  

I’ve been there, I’ve made my choice. I am no longer stressed about work not getting done. We work at the same company and I have a lot of work as well but no one is questioning why I can’t get things done.

🎯 I prioritize and keep my life in balance.

🎯 If work that needs to get done by a deadline can’t realistically be done on time, temps come in or they hire another set of hands. I’ve set the president for what can and can’t be done. 

🎯 If it’s important to management to get done by a certain deadline they need to deal with how that will be accomplished. 

I’m successful at what I do. I am successful because of the way I live. I choose Livelihood Spirit Balance where and how I live my life is in alignment with who I am at the core. I know what’s important to me. I know what I deserve. 🙏 💝🙏

 What’s important to you?

Love & Light,

Dawn-Marie P. Dalsass, President of  Livelihood Spirit Balance is a Stress Management Maven. She’s a Stress and Anxiety Expert for Middle Managers. She started her career in Corporate America while she was in high school and worked her way up the ranks finding herself in middle to upper management for most of her corporate career. She loved what she did but along the way she battled stress, anxiety and depression. When work and life were more than she could handle she planned her suicide in detail. Fortunately, she didn’t go through with it when she saw her 2 little boys on her way to get a knife with a plan to end it all. It was in that moment that she vowed to pull herself together and begin a new journey.

In 2015 she started her own business called Life Coach DM. After several years of working with clients, she realized that the majority of her clients were in middle management just like she was. She had helped most go from being stressed, anxious and / or depressed to being more balanced, aware and dynamic while guiding them on their own journey to achieve life goals including work life balance.

Dawn-Marie has since become a Certified Nature & Forest Therapy Guide and teaches individuals how they too can annihilate the stress, anxiety and depression (aka S.A.D) that middle managers and working parents can face through a process called equilibration (the balancing of the mind and emotions) along with the healing benefits a deep connection to nature (both indoors and out) can bring to become fully balanced, aware and dynamic (aka B.A.D).

Through her own practice, Dawn-Marie discovered what she calls Livelihood Spirit Balance where how one lives their life is in alignment with their authentic self, their B.A.D Ass-self. With Livelihood Spirit Balance, Work Life Balance and everything else just falls into place.

Based on her years of work and client success stories, Dawn-Marie changed her business name to Livelihood Spirit Balance to align with her teachings, mission, vision and purpose.

Dawn-Marie offers online courses, personal and corporate development coaching, workshops and seminars. As the owner of  Total Convalescence – Nature & Forest Therapy she also offers public and private Nature & Forest Therapy Walks.
