How I stopped the ‘hustle‘ and started to play the long game as an online business owner.
“A solopreneur is another way of saying I have created a job for myself working sixteen hour days, seven days a week. You can’t create a business alone.”
Working your business in the online world can be a maze of second guessing, isolation and bright shiny object syndrome.I didn’t have a smooth ride into entrepreneurship.
“I need X course to make it work…if I just joined that Y group I know my business will skyrocket…I just, I just , I just…”
What we end up doing is creating an ideal of what our businesses should look like, removing all logic from the equation. We miss the opportunity to go back to basics and just do the simple stuff, because we’re comparing ourselves waaaaayyyy too often.
Hey gorgeous human, I’m in those trenches with you. I would get my knickers in such a knot trying to BE someone else. Thinking I wasn’t good enough and too often chasing someone else’s ideal.
Then one day I stopped. I realised I didn’t want they wanted, I wanted what I wanted. I needed to create a business that made me feel creative, that hit all my hot buttons for success.
“Create a plan.
Go on more
Once I did that, I was able to stop all the bright shiny object and focus on the simple, logical, maybe even boring stuff.
That stuff that builds lists, brings you clients and creates cashflow.
Sounds so simple, I know.
When you wander aimlessly looking for something, without a map or a plan, your intentions are great but your chances of getting there are limited.
It’s knowing what you can do on a regular basis, that will get you closer to your goals.
The overwhelm is strong, so you really must want it. This means making sure that what you are building is what you want. Do you want to do it, day in, day out…on sick days, on sad days, on happy days.
