Episode 14 - The gift of a 4-year burnout to bounce back to bigger success with Allison Marlowe
What happens when we ignore life’s warning signs that we need to slow down? What happens when we just keep pushing through? What happens when we believe we just have to keep going? This mum’s highly successful business was her way of proving she could do it, to prove to herself and others that she was good enough and worthy of success – and she was smashing it. Until it all came crashing down? Hear this mum’s incredible story of how life decided it was time to step in and hit the ‘pause button’. An enforced pause of four years saw Allison lose everything she’d worked so hard to build over the years. But in return she was gifted the key to what it takes to enjoy and sustain even greater success on your terms.
What we cover
- With her husband out at sea and raising 4 children, Allison felt she had something to prove
- How running a successful networking company led to a mini burn out in 2012
- How dealing with losing both her parents, her huband going back out to sea and helping a son with Mental health all while running her company led to a major burn out
- What Allison throught would be just a few weeks off to rest turned into weeks, and then months to having eventually having to give up her company
- How after 4 years off, Allison started to study what is it that makes us not pause and learned how to honour what we have been through whether it be a loss or a major change

In collaboration with...
When I met Ashley, the CEO of the insurance company Bounce, and Rachel Brookes, the Network Development Manager, it was clear from the start that Bounce and Mpower share similar values around empowering others (particularly mothers) and creating opportunities to flexibly combine earning a great living with motherhood.
Bounce not only proivdes people with the right insurance products to potect their families, health and business they are also hugely passionate about providing flexible opportunities for mums to earn additional income.
With zero risk and zero investment, Bounce empowers mums in business to make a difference to the lives of others with their insurance services and enables them to transform their own lives through becoming part of a supportive and vibrant Bounce network and community and building a primary or additional source of income by becoming a Bounce referall partner.
So, I’m really excited to be bringing you this podcast series in collaboration with Bounce. I know how difficult it can be to earn a great living while your building your startup, particularly in those first few years. So the Bounce referral opportunity for a product which is all about essential peace of mind and protection could be a perfect business opportunity or compliment to your existing business. - you can find out more about creating an additional Bounce income by visiting the Bounce Nework website
