Frenchie Ferenczi: Your Success as an Entrepreneur Depends on Clear Expectations & Great Boundaries
Updated: Sep 28
“I think that it all comes down to understanding your priorities and letting those shift and evolve,” explains Frenchie Ferenczi, Business Growth Strategist who works with entrepreneurs to maximize their income. When Frenchie first experienced burnout, she did not immediately recognize it for what it was. As she learned more and recovered, Frenchie changed her career path and began to teach her clients how to protect themselves from burnout.
Frenchie worked in hospitality for her entire career and enjoyed it until the strain of never honoring her boundaries caused her to resent the members. She had been expected to accommodate every request and every possible need that the members had and were unable to prioritize her own needs. Frenchie ended up burning out and transitioned from working in hospitality to working directly with entrepreneurs, helping them to grow their businesses. She teaches her clients how to create a great customer experience while maintaining healthy boundaries and avoiding burnout.
Tune into today’s episode of FRIED. The Burnout Podcast for a conversation with Frenchie Ferenczi about how to set clear expectations in order to uphold healthy boundaries. Learn how to organize your priorities in a way that keeps you and your mental health at the top of the list without sacrificing the growth of your business.
“The joy of bringing joy was my favorite thing. And then the level of resentment that grew towards the members of this company was just so clear to me.” (4:47-5:04)
“I think that this idea that we need to go all-in is common and I typically try and reframe that around, ‘What’s 100% of what you can give?’ because that’s a very different piece. I think that you need to be all in in your ambition and in your motivation, but that doesn’t mean that you need to be all in with all of your resources, meaning all of your money, all of your time, all of your energy.” (9:38-10:02)
“I think that it all comes down to understanding your priorities and letting those shift and evolve. What comes along with that is also getting comfortable with the very uncomfortable fact that everything is a little bit of a tradeoff.” (39:42-40:03)
“If you, yourself, and your mental health are not very near the top or at the top of your priority list, that’s something to explore.” (41:01-41:12)
