Welcome to another special recap episode, where we’ll do a debrief, recap, and summary of our most recent interview with Juliet Funt. In our previous episode with Juliet, we discussed the battle against reactive busyness through something called white space.
Juliet is the CEO of WhiteSpace at Work and an expert in white space, which helps organizations retrieve their talented teams from beneath piles of crushing to-dos and relentless task assaults. In today’s episode, we share our cliff notes from that interview, from making sure to work white space into every day to living the dream and setting up a flexible, virtual business and living on the road.
We also share our main takeaways, which include writing a book at any stage of your career and the multiple ways in which we can be successful, as well as growing into your personal brand and doing things at your own pace. Tune in today to find out more!

Key Points From This Episode:
- The value of white space in every work day, rather than trying to cram in as much as possible.
- White space can even just be an interstitial sip of time; it doesn’t have to be 30 or 60 minutes.
- Juliet’s lifestyle – living and working on the road, creating income, and doing everything virtually.
- You can be well-established as a personal brand without a book – Juliet is launching her first.
- The multiple ways to be successful as a personal brand, speaker, or business person.
- Iterating and speaking on lots of things as a way of finding your unique perspective.
- Having to do things one at a time in order to be truly effective in each aspect.
- Growing into your personal brand by getting started and building from there.
- Not comparing your step 1 to someone else’s step 1000; doing things at your own pace.
and so much more!
“I almost feel like a slacker if I stop and pause and have nothing, like I’m not being productive, and the way that [Juliet] described it was, if you’re busy every second of the day, you’re not allowing yourself to catch the brilliant innovations. You’re not allowing yourself to catch the big ideas and the big creative moments.” —[0:04:28]

“Speak on many things, but one at a time. I think that’s the key. You cannot be a wellness and nutrition speaker, and a leadership speaker, and a sales speaker, and an economist at the same time.” —[0:09:07]
