Overwhelm - How to Fall Back In Love With Your Business Let's Talk Dog Business

    • Pets & Animals

In this episode, Jo & Vicky delve into the scary world of burnout and overwhelm. Something they have both experienced. They explain the circumstances that led to this situation and how to avoid the same thing happening to you. As well as discussing strategies that anyone can use to regain control so that they can once again fall in love with their business.
They cover building up your skills, working on your mindset, self-care, dealing with doubters and people who do not take what you do seriously and much more.
KEY TAKEAWAYS
Overwhelm is common among entrepreneurs. Being a solopreneur is very lonely. Especially, after working in corporate. Keep things in context, it is easy to focus too much on how challenging things are. To be successful you have to actively develop a positive and strong mindset. Bear in mind that you are not the only one who is struggling. Keep on educating yourself and improving your skill set. Getting a mentor, someone who has already been where you are now will save you a lot of time, money, and energy. Surround yourself with people that build you up. Make sure your hourly rate reflects your true costs and those occasions where you have to work extra hours. Earning enough eases the pressure. Using incremental and achievable goals keeps you on track, motivates you and helps you to feel in control. Manage your expectations and be realistic. BEST MOMENTS
‘The mindset shift needed to be able to be a business owner is incredibly powerful.'
‘That societal impression they have…. That the dog industry isn´t serious.’
‘Find your people.’
