About Burnout Solutions & Beth Genly

I'm so glad you're here!  My name is Beth Genly. I'm pretty sure we have a lot in common, you and I: we are completely dedicated both to our professions and to our families.

Yet, if we don't know how to apply an anti-burnout skillset, that fierce dedication may drive us into burnout: physical, emotional and spiritual exhaustion. Burnout is miserable! I know, I've been there. I was in complete overwhelm. Exhaustion. Frustration. End-of-my-rope hopelessness.

So, I truly know: Burnout feels like failure. It feels almost impossible to talk about. It wrecks careers and relationships.  When I went through burnout, I hid out at my desk, searching desperately for answers. Something that would help me, as an individual, get back to feeling engaged, productive, and connected.  

That's why, when I discovered four decades of published medical and social studies on burnout, I worked with an expert friend to comb through it all. Then, when I knew we'd built that information into a system that would give you what you needed most, I co-founded Burnout Solutions.  Our unique, science-based system helps you start feeling better, fast. Soon, our new book will be released: Save Yourself from Burnout:A System to Get Your Life Back.

When you're burned out, you need encouragement and support. You also need clear, effective strategies. At Burnout Solutions, I've got your back.

The Triple Threat Against Burnout

As a health care provider, educator, and entrepreneur, I've witnessed the devastating effects of burnout. I've seen it derail the careers of some of my best and brightest colleagues, students and patients. I've also experienced burnout firsthand, which is how I know it is possible to recover.

At Burnout Solutions, I am a triple threat against burnout. With my professional background in business, medicine, and education, my advantage is my unique approach:

  • Medical: I understand how and why we get vulnerable to burnout, and what to do to fix it.
  • Educational: I make Burnout Solutions' tools and methods understandable, fun, and immediately useful.
  • Business: I understand the pressures faced by professionals and managers.

And this about-to-be-published book lays it all out for you.

How Burnout Solutions Helps You

Are inspirational quotes on Facebook enough to lift you out of physical, emotional and spiritual exhaustion?  Not likely, right?  Does being asked to find “work-life balance” help you re-engage with your work or your family? Probably not so much, either.

Instead, you'll learn crucial skills, pulled from the latest research, to help you, a dedicated, hardworking professional, get back to having the space to breathe and grow in your life.  We help you make “work-life balance” concrete, actionable, and productive. 

I co-founded Burnout Solutions because there wasn't anything like our system out there. Burnout Solutions' unique approach is based on the latest research and best practices in engagement, productivity and connection.  I can help you start recovering immediately, and then stay out of burnout, going forward.

My presentations are efficient, engaging, and extremely useful. Which one of my offerings would be best for you?

In 2014, burnout took a knock-down punch when chance brought me to meet Dr. Marnie Loomis at a Toastmasters for Speaking Professionals meeting.  Burnout Solutions would not have come to be without the brilliant collaboration of my dear friend and co-founder, Dr. Loomis, who was a principal developer of the Burnout Shield system.  She also wrote the very first article published on our Burnout Shield system: Not Just a Personal Problem, Practitioner Burnout is a Public Health Issue, published in Holistic Primary Care.

She has been a natural medicine expert for television, radio and print news outlets and has presented scientific lectures and comedy shows on the topics of health and burnout since 2007.
