Evan Shy – Can Work And Life Balance?

Subscribe. Watch. Listen.



Alignment, Authenticity, Connection, Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Passion, Workplace


This week I welcome hiitide founder and CEO Evan Shy. Hiitide is the amazing personal growth platform that hosts my bookclub. Evan and I recognize how life and work are not separate but deeply intertwined and for that reason we are not just colleagues but also friends. Join us as we delve into relationships, authenticity and fulfilment through the lens of business. We bring light to the synergy of having integrity and alignment in your relationships both inside and outside of work. Evan reflects on the epic concept of Extreme Ownership and we trade stories of how we’ve each used this approach to empower ourselves and learn from past decisions. If you’re starting down the path of creating alignment between your values and your work, THIS is the episode for you!


  • The truth about “Someday”
  • We know why but won’t do anything about it. Why is that?
  • Data around working from home and shorter work weeks
  • Why can’t we just talk about it?
  • Alignment in the workplace, your heart and your bottom line
  • When people feel safe to be themselves, they perform the best
  • Don’t quit your job to pursue your dream, do this instead
  • We were taught how to do long division, but never taught how to love ourselves
  • Why we must learn, be aware, and apply, not just educate
