About our guest, Meredith Vaish:

Meredith Vaish

Meredith Vaish is a recovering over-doer whose own burnout forced her to quit a 16-year career at Stanford. Upon leaving, she embarked on a year-long ‘SOULbbatical’ where she discovered that pause isn’t the absence of doing, it’s the most powerful doing there is. Now she’s on a mission to help other busy, high-achieving women break free from the overwhelm of being always-on so that they can channel their energy away from the hustle of proving, pleasing, and perfectionism into creating a life they really love. Meredith offers tools, tips, and her Energy Quiz on her website:
