What You'll Discover In This Episode:
Being a business owner can feel, well, lonely.
Even when you’re surrounded by a team… even when you’re working from home with a house full of kids… even when you’re in back-to-back meetings with clients all day and never have a minute to yourself.
You may still feel lonely because you feel totally alone in your struggles as a business owner.
You may feel like no one else could possibly understand what you’re going through in your business each day - like you’re totally on your own out there.
You may feel like your friends, family, and significant other want to support you but they just don’t know how and they don’t really get it.
Well, I do. I’m here to tell you that you’re not alone and you certainly don’t have to run your business feeling that way.
The obstacles you’re facing in your business may seem totally unique but regardless of your industry, the makeup of your clientele, or the size of your team, they are likely a lot more common than you think.
They’re just not talked about with real transparency enough. No one wears their struggles in business like a badge of honor, posting them all over social media - but every business owner has challenges… challenges that are really similar to each other...
Feeling overwhelmed, like your business and life are out of control and you want it to stop
Having sooooo many ideas but not having the time to do any of them
Constantly getting in your own way
Knowing you need to delegate/outsource but not knowing where to start or how
Suffering health-wise because you’re the last on the long list of things to focus on
Needing to do something different because you’re missing your kids growing up but not knowing what
Not having the time to slow down and create the systems your business needs
Holding on for the ride and I hating it because you used to be organized but then your business gre and everything broke
Feeling in over your head. You didn’t learn how to be a great business owner in college, after all
Feeling exhausted ALL. THE. TIME.
You are hardly alone in your struggles as a business owner. There are plenty of effective ways to minimize the overwhelm, get the support you need to run a thriving business, and rid yourself of the all-consuming feeling of being alone. In this episode of Productivity Straight Talk, I dive into them.
