How to Be Kinder to Yourself in Business and in Life w/Kati Spaniak

Lars Hedenborg    June 2, 2020



In the fast-paced world we live in, it’s easy to feel that we should always be doing more.

Can we still achieve our goals if we’re not striving towards them every minute of every day?

How can we stop putting so much pressure on ourselves?

On this episode, I talk with Kati Spaniak of The Spaniak Team in Chicago. She shares her advice for being kinder to yourself while working to make your dreams a reality.

About Kati Spaniak:  Kati Spaniak is the leader of The Spaniak Team. Born and raised in Chicago, Kati has created a business in her home city that serves to help clients buy and sell homes in the easiest way possible. Kati is aware that the processes of buying and selling are highly stressful, and she and her team strive to keep their clients’ anxieties to the minimum. This kindness extends to herself and her approach to business, and she makes sure to keep her company as stress-free as possible.

"Stop comparing yourself to others in the business. Do what works for you." -Kati Spaniak


Three Things You'll Learn from Kati Spaniak


Push yourself, but stop when you need to (03:26- 05:09)

When you remove the pressure you put on yourself to do things, you end up doing them out of your own free will. For example, tell yourself you’ll exercise for at least five minutes, and if after that you’re not enjoying it, stop. When you allow yourself to do things because you want to, and not because you have to, you’ll end up a lot more motivated.


Acknowledge what you have done (06:18- 07:03)

Take a moment to reflect on how far you’ve come. You may not have achieved everything you’ve set your mind to yet, but you still have the time. Even if you’re not where you want to be at this very moment, acknowledge how far you’ve come since the start of your journey.


Stop comparing yourself to others (14:44- 15:26)

Remember that your business belongs to you. As such, you need to be paying attention to the solutions and strategies that will work for you, specifically. By comparing yourself to others in the industry, you’re only doing yourself a disservice.

Much Love & Respect,
