Anyone who promises you the holy grail in business (more time freedom, limitless income potential) is painting a pretty picture to make a pretty penny. And we all know what happens to something that’s picture perfect right?
First, picture perfect doesn’t exist. Life is full of ebbs and flows – and business is no different. You will have extraordinary months in business, and there will be times where it all feels like it’s crashing down.
Heck, you may be at the beginning of this journey. That’s what I want you to remember, this is a journey. And as cliche as it may sound, are you enjoying the ride?
I had to stop myself the other day while we were filming a few teasers and a message we will be sharing with you soon about the direction of our company HER Media (and magazine). I can’t believe how far we’ve come in such a short time…
There was a moment a few weeks ago where I had sunken myself into an abyss of sadness because I had a moment every business owner has – What am I doing? Who am I to do this?
And then I realized so many of us ask ourselves these questions. We allow self-doubt to creep in.
What can we do to recover? Surround yourself with like-minded women. Do not do this business thing alone. So many of us allow for EGO to get in the way. We don’t want to ask for help or we don’t want to admit this is hard.
Building a business is not for the faint of heart. It takes a special warrior, and damn it you are that warrior!
So here’s what I want you to do:
- Be present: take the time. Allow the world to stop around you, have that cup of tea or coffee – or wine and really take everything in.
- Find your tribe or create it! Start a mastermind. Get together with your local business women – reach out to them, and if you don’t know them promise to network your heart out this month. Nothing has helped me expand my vision and business more than meeting with a group of like minded women every month. You’re more than welcome to join our FREE facebook group – just go to www.hermag.co and subscribe to our email list to get your invitation or keep flipping through our magazine. We have a link inside these pages.
- Take a break or don’t: look you’re going to be dished a lot of advice (even here at HER magazine) – choose what’s right for you. Don’t take everything as gospel. So for all those people wondering if work life balance exists. It does, but remember to create the rules of ‘balance’ according to you and not society. Everyone is wired differently.
Our Cover is an incredibly inspiring woman who makes me want to step up my game. I love all the women we feature, but Rachel Maser is special and you’ll see why when you read her story and hear her authentic voice in our video interview together.
She’s a beautiful soul who unveils the recipe for success…
