Welcome to Unstrictly Business, a podcast all about work-life balance, combating burnout, and cultivating success inside and outside the office. We do this by sharing behind-the-scenes interviews with successful business owners as well as other resources for busy business people. I'm your host, Calli! I'm the Founder of “Do Well Dept,” an inclusive online community that helps passionate work-from-home entrepreneurs & remote businesses achieve overall wellbeing for themselves, their employees, and their business. 


In this episode, I had the chance to sit down with Elysse Crabtree, who is not only the founder of Wabi-Sabi Botanicals, an essential oil-free, natural skincare line, but also a business mentor and intuitive guide through her second business, Be Led By Love. Since the launch of Wabi-Sabi Botanicals almost seven years ago, Elysse has learned a lot, but one of the main things she has come to embrace, as well and share with other business owners, is the importance of restoring a balance of both masculine and feminine energies in business. If you’re not sure what this means, the masculine side of business is one we all know well, hustling for 8 hours a day, being assertive and competitive, and leaving emotions outside of business. The feminine on the other hand is open to receiving, accepting of rest, and about strong communication of values. 


Today you’ll learn how Elysse went from a behavior therapist and aid to launching Wabi-Sabi Botanicals after her own skin struggles. Her intuitive business practices lead her from an inspirational Pinterest pin of an at-home skincare recipe to creating a line of products that were featured in Urban Outfitters just six months after her launch. This episode is filled with actionable advice from Elysse on how to build a business that aligns with your unique life path. 


In this episode, you'll discover...



  • How Elysse balances the feminine and masculine in her own business
  • The most common setbacks her business mentees experience
  • What Elysse does to get in touch with her divine intuition + her daily routine
  • How Elysse managed her full-time job as she grew Wabi-Sabi Botanicals
