Without delay, here’s everything you want to know about Alexis Buhrman.
Some Real Talk
Hey, there! I’m Alexis. I’m here to help you create the life, career, business you want by breaking up with busy and making time for things that truly matter. I think it starts by getting very clear about what you want and cutting out the things that eat up your time, so you have space to prioritize what’s important. And to do that, you need a foundation of good self-care.
The slow and steady path to burnout
Before becoming a coach, I worked in advertising. I loved having a creative job, but I never learned to set boundaries early on in my career. In an industry that’s known for working people hard, I never said no to staying late or taking projects home. I went ‘all-in’ all the time, and after 15 years, I hit my burnout wall.
Doctor knows best?
The search for alternative solutions to self-care
I set boundaries that were healthy for me, like avoiding people who drained my energy. I stopped saying yes to everything. I quit volunteering for events or roles if they didn’t allow me to use my talents or passions. I spent more time being, less time doing, and as a result, I could bring fire, energy, and enthusiasm to things I did choose to do.
Eventually, my anxiety disappeared. For the first time in a long time, I was feeling great. I hired a coach and started setting big goals, the goals I never had the energy to achieve before. I quit my job, went back to school to become a coach and now I support women just like you. Coaching + self-care completely transformed my life, and I want to help it transform yours.

When I’m not coaching, I’m spending time with my awesome husband, Eric, and our five pets Max, Doug, Shadow, Little and Grendel.
I love getting out in nature, road trips, board games and taco night. That is, when I’m not covered in cats, vacuuming hair or cleaning up mystery puke.
I love Ruth Ware books, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. I’m a cancer and an ENFJ.
I LOVE sushi, craft cocktails and all the cheese. All of em!
Amy Poehler is my spirit animal and I think we should hang out. Tina Fey and Melissa McCarthy can come, too. Bring wine.
