This topic is something that is very dear to my heart & is something that I think most creative business owners have to discover at one point or another. It’s vastly important to be able to find that work-life balance & though I’m still working on it, I’ve been learning a lot about how to minimize my to do list & gain control of my life (rather than my to do list controlling me!)
I received an email newsletter this morning from the lovely Nisha Moodley where she sums it up so perfectly: “This cycle of anxiety, overdrive, overwhelm, and despair was running my life, and there was no space in my life for me.”
Hi loves! I can’t believe August is over. I mean seriously, where did that month go? I can’t say I’m sad to see it go, though – because I’m pretty dang excited about September. This month represents turning over a new leaf in my business & in my life. I’ve been working hard to revamp all of my processes, define and ramp up project timelines, and even designing some pretty new informational packets for each project. It’s a big deal!
I’m gonna get real for a minute. Life as an entrepreneur has its perks & all, but it can also be really, really hard! Don’t get be wrong – I love what I do – so so much. But, I think that often small business owners start doing something because they have a knack for it or a love for it – and the business stuff goes by the wayside. Then, it catches up. You realize there’s a reason people have business plans, calendars, routines. And you remember that not having them causes so much stress – disorganization, overbooking, and a whole slew of problems associated with those. It can sometimes be a hard thing to overcome, and in my case, it’s definitely gotta change if I want to be living the life I want. I’m excited to be opening up a new chapter, reorganizing my business, and getting things back on track so that I can provide better service to each of you lovelies & also stay a sane human being at the same time! 😉
