Create more impact with less effort.
Running a business wasn’t supposed to be this hard.
You started out wanting to share your gifts with others and have plenty of time for the rest of your life. That’s not quite how it’s turning out though. The big dreams you had seem to have got buried somewhere under your never-ending to-do list.
You’re proud of the business you’ve built up but you’re tired of always feeling stretched too thin, scrambling to catch up.
You’ve always found a way through the challenges before (in fact, you’ve thrived on challenges) but you understand the value of targeted support. You know you could get further faster if you just get help to structure your time, manage your energy and hone your focus, so that you can stop feeling scattered and finish more of what matters most. Even more importantly, if you had fresh eyes on your business, you could work out what is truly important, and double down on that. As Stephen Covey says:
"The challenge is not to manage time, but to manage ourselves."
At the moment, it feels like you’re stuck on a hamster wheel of busy work - between email, social media, marketing and networking, it seems there’s barely any time at all to do your real work.
This business that was supposed to give you the flexibility to be fully present with your family instead seems to be taking over your life. And the demands of running a home and a family are constantly chipping away at the time you have available for work.
You can never fully relax because your mind ALWAYS has a ticker-tape running through it, keeping track of All The Things. You feel responsible for everything but not quite in control of any of it.
You hate this thought, but you’re starting to doubt that running your own business really is the right thing to do. At least when you had a 9-5 job, you had a reliable structure (and pay cheque!) to plan around.
