Setting Boundaries for Business Owners with Angela Wagner
How to set personal boundaries for business owners, with entrepreneur and life coach Angela Wagner.
On this episode Angela and Henry discuss the challenge, and the need, to set and manage boundaries related to our personal lives and our small business – so that we are not consumed by our business and lose sight of what “success” really means.
Angela Wagner is a life coach, yoga teacher and trainer, wife, and mom of two young children. She has been working in the health and wellness space for over 20 years. She helps women go from feeling stressed and overwhelmed to living a life with simplicity, joy, and purpose, without adding a million more things to their to-do list.
Angela started her career in wellness as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. Her tendency towards feeling high levels of stress led her to practice and teach yoga. In 2004, she opened YogaSport, a Dallas yoga studio where she taught Power Flow Yoga and created and led many life coaching programs. In 2020, she transitioned her yoga studio and coaching business online and is now serving a global community of women working to live a more joyful and purpose-driven life.
Angela lives in Dallas, Texas.
