Aren’t you just tired of being the go to person plus the owner plus the marketer plus the creative thinker plus, plus, plus, behind your own business? Just typing the word ‘plus’ so many times makes my mind go bonkers!
Many business persons are proud to say they are entrepreneurs. A new catch word that has taken root and gained credibility over the last 5- 10 years. While it is a ‘feel good’ and ‘look good’ term, it doesn’t ‘feel good’ when you are drained and tired at the end of the day and week and can’t spend time with your loved ones or have time to do anything else for that matter nor is it a ‘look good’ term when you look older as you peer in the mirror or your body feels aged when you are only in your 20’s, 30’s or even 40’s!
It’s time to get a grip!!
Recognize that you are working in your business when it should rather be that the business is working for you. Think about that for a moment. It takes some time for it to sink in for some persons.
If you find yourself working in your business, some signs are that you are trading hours for dollars which looks very much like the job you left; the only difference being that you are now your boss and you may be working from home. You are time broke! You are irritable. You are hustling and running down the money! You ca’t afford t lose a client for this will significantly affect your cash flow. The list continues.
Let’s look at the other side – When your business is working for you.
You have time to do anything you want, when you want, with whom you want, as many times you want. You leverage time and other people’s efforts. You don’t need to worry about cash flow because of that same power of leveraging.You are happier and there is more joy in your life and with those who you spend time with.
I was recently interviewed on a telesummit – ‘Turbocharge Your Virtual Success’ hosted by Sheila Edens Brown on the topic ‘Automating Your Business’ which is relevant to this discussion. In the few minutes we spent, I shared my own experience and some tips of getting around working in your business to having your business work for you.
As a bonus giveaway, I created an eBook that I would like to share that I know will bring immense value to you once you take action and apply the tips and strategies. I have put my heart into it and would love to hear your feedback which you can post below.
I know there are many others like you out there that would love to get their hands on such a valuable resource especially those who are transitioning from a 9-5 and just starting their online/virtual or home based business or even those who have found themselves in a rut and need a jolt to get back on track. If you are so inclined, feel free to share this post using the share buttons to the left.
We are a few months away from welcoming 2016. How will you close 2015? I hope with more time on your hands, more love in your hearts and more passion to take 2016 to the world!
