Build Momentum, Work With Purpose, Live With Intention.

Creating Cadence is for high achievers stuck on the hamster wheel of overwork.

Want to activate more potential and craft a more meaningful life? So you can perform better in every part of your work and life?

Creating Cadence is about how work and working life fits into the life you want, with a rhythm and pace that works for you.

It calls on you to reconsider what “being productive” and “working well” looks like.

So you can transform your life and thrive, in midlife and beyond.

It’s time to flow to the beat of a different drum!

Become part of the Cadence movement.

Together we can change the conversation around burnout and overwork.

There’s a different way to do business. We can activate the potential in ourselves and our businesses, with wellbeing, purpose and meaning front of mind.

Meet Your Host

Michelle Bondesio

I started my Cadence newsletter and the Creating Cadence podcast as learning opportunities, after my own experience of recovering from burnout.

My new book, The Cadence Effect, is about transforming our life with intentionally productive habits.

I also speak, coach and write on these topics.

We need to adapt to the rapid, radical transformations taking place in our physical and digital landscapes, without it costing us our lives and livelihoods. 

I’m working to change the conversation around overwork and hustle culture. I want to disrupt the toxic status quo of traditional working cultures that lead to burnout.

Specifically, my aim is to help high achievers prone to burnout to develop more mindful approaches to work and life. So they can support their wellbeing, creativity and productivity better, to thrive in midlife and beyond.

I’ve been enjoying the podcasts and been taking notes from them. A great mini-course which is so accessible. It feels like a conversation going on in my head between you and me. Your voice is perfect for podcasting.

Heartedly recommend. The perfect voice, clear thoughts, and just the right length for some positive and productive thoughts to mull over gently. My overactive brain really needed this.

You’re doing such great, important work Mich. And you have such a wonderful voice for podcasting. It really fits the ethos of your show – because it’s calming, but commanding. It makes it a pleasant listen!

Your cadence is perfect. It feels like you built this out of the experience that comes from being places where you needed the insights you’re sharing, and that’s the kind of credibility I’m looking for.

Mich Bondesio offers a new blueprint for work and life. One that needs both mind and heart. One that asks us to slow down while keeping on moving, as movement creates energy for change. A must listen to make positive change.

Thoroughly researched, interesting, and helpful. Mich’s delivery is calm, relaxing, yet educational, with an undercurrent of “you’ve got this.” She is highly professional and polished, while also sharing an honest vulnerability.
