Put your hand up if you regularly:
Feel overwhelmed by 'all the things' you have yet to do in your business
Focus more on what work's left to do, rather than how much you've done and achieved
Assess your worth against your levels of productivity
Feel guilty when you take time out to rest
Worry about where your next client is coming from
Feel out of balance in the work and play/rest realms.
Don't worry honey, you're not alone - it's something so many of us babes in biz experience. Why? Because we LOVE what we do and want, with all our heart and soul, for our businesses to succeed. And that my dear is a beautiful thing ...
IF, we can look after ourselves in the process.
IF, we can still make space for all the (non biz related things) that bring us joy and light up our soul.
IF, we can surrender to the process and trust that all will unfold just as it is meant to (while of course being proactive and strategic in our work)
IF, our work becomes something that compliments our life, not sucks the life out of us.
Because otherwise, what's the point?
What's the point in having a thriving business if we're depleted and burnt out?
If our connections with our loved ones are fragile and strained?
If the process isn't enjoyable and inspired?
If we're not loving life and experiencing it to its full capacity?
(WARNING, TRUTHBOMB TO FOLLOW)
The truth of the matter is that we could drop dead at any second. ANY SECOND!
Tell me this honey, if today was the day your life was to end, would you be taking in your last breathe thinking about all the work you didn't get done, or thinking about your loves and the beautiful memories you created during your time here on Earth.
All of the B.S. we concern ourselves with DOESN'T F!CKING MATTER!
What DOES matter is living life to its fullest. Experiencing love. Laughing. Feeling good - on the inside and out. Doing what lights your soul on fire. Trying new things, just for fun!
If you're anything like me, you believe that work is meant to compliment the rest of your life. To enhance it and gift you the finances and freedom you need to do the things that bring you joy.
If you too agree, I want you to get really honest and ask yourself ...
AM I IN ALIGNMENT WITH THIS TRUTH? IS MY WORK A TOOL FOR ME TO EXPERIENCE MORE JOY AND FREEDOM? OR ARE MY CURRENT WORK PRACTICES CURRENTLY SUCKING THE JOY AND FREEDOM FROM MY LIFE?
I'd love to hear your reflections.

Regularly putting time aside to audit your business and assess what's working, not working, and what needs to change in order for it to grow and be financially abundant, is a task that too many babes in small biz overlook.
Though most women I connect with are driven to succeed in their businesses and be financially abundant, many miss the crucial step of regularly stepping back from their business and auditing its efficacy. A step away from working in their business to working on their business.
My free 12 page self audit tool, Review, Revise, Renew, will gift you all the information you need to do your very own audit of your business TODAY.
