When I first started out… I had tonnes of inspiration and passion for helping people…
But that didn’t last… as my business grew… I forgot to keep myself at the centre of things. I forgot to put my own air-mask on before helping others on the plane.
I gave my everything to my business, to my clients. I met their needs and schedules…But I forgot about myself, my friends and my family.
I was working long hours and too many days. I wasn’t taking time for myself or my family. I had grown a full practice without developing my systems to manage my business. This eventually had me on the path to burn-out and working in a business that was running me, rather than me running my business!
Can you relate?
Then, one day …everything changed…
I decided to take back control of my business and build the business that I truly wanted to work in… One that would inspire me and keep me passionate about what I do and the people I help.
Here’s what I learned…
Build your business to support the life you want!
This is crucial to building a business that you actually LOVE.
Success can happen very quickly or too slowly, the root cause of either issues is due to the lack of systems. You could get caught up in the details and missing opportunities or you have so many clients that you are struggling to keep up with the day to day business management.
Building your business and knowing how many hours a week you want to work, how flexible you want to be with your time, if you want to work only days, evenings or combination of both, do you want to travel, etc…
Figure out who you love to work with, and what you love to help them with… and then make that your focus!
Commit to yourself, your business, and your clients….
Commit to serving your clients in a bigger way!
By serving yourself in your business you will be able to show up fully for your clients and make bigger impact in their lives.
Create the life you want to live -doing what you love- Doing the things you want to do, when you want to do them and with whom you want to do them.
Build your business to support the lifestyle you want from the very beginning, enabling you to generate the kind of income you desire. To be completely frank I believe you deserve the income that you desire.
You can build a business that feeds your soul, work in your genius… and create huge impact for your clients.
These tips are now what I live by… I have strong boundaries in place so that I can continue to show up fully for my clients, myself, my family and friends.
I LOVE showing up for my life every single day!
