The core challenge in Level III of the Brilliance Game--and a core challenge for too many women at the height of their careers--is to shine as a brilliant star without burning out. This is no easy task. And that’s why I ask every Brilliance Game Player to read Save Yourself from Burnout and then create her own burnout prevention strategy.- Tess Daniel, Inventor of the Brilliance Game
When I met Beth I wasn't simply burnt-out, I was crispy. What I loved doing I no longer loved at all. I couldn't understand how my personal passion had turned into a blood-sucking vampire draining meaning from each and every task. She helped me see that by doing small, simple, and satisfying things for myself I could reintroduce meaning and satisfaction into my days. I am indebted to her in ways that I am sure she does not even realize.- James Wantz, Dynamic Movement Coach
I'm a firm believer in the old adage "when the student is ready, the teacher will come." Beth Genly and Marnie Loomis are caring and competent teachers, and I wish I had been ready for their insights sooner! Encountering the ideas and engaging in the activities in this book, I feel that I have company on my healing journey, and am not so alone. Instead of a once-through read, this resource will be a valuable companion as I continue to recover from burnout; I anticipate that it will continue to serve me as I practice better habits, so I can avoid going there ever again.- Karen Wolfgang, CEO of Independence Gardens
Hope is a mandatory ingredient for a fulfilling and abundant life. Burnout is the antithesis to this and results in a pervasive loss of this essential element to our health and well-being. Dr Loomis’ and Ms Genly’s book: Save Yourself from Burnout brings hope to all who suffer from burnout. This work also offers hope to all those whom have not yet reached their exhaustive threshold but have begun to slump. In truth, this book is a guide for everyone that wants to reassess, restore, and return to our original birthright-a life filled with anticipation of fulfillment and contentment.- Erin Lommen, ND, CEO and Assoc. Medical Director, Labrix Clinical Services, Inc.
I experienced burnout as early as in my High School years, and then several times more in my adult life. I always thought that something was wrong with me, that I failed as a person and that I let everyone down. I questioned my intelligence and my abilities. Then I met Beth and recognized that all these years, I struggled through burnouts that were affecting my health and social life negatively. She has taught me lots of wonderful ways to take care of myself to prevent falling back into bad burnout habits. Her presentations are engaging, empathic and educational, leaving you with little treasures of knowledge every single time!- Susanne Valor, Freelancer based in the Netherlands
