Design Your Life - Build A Thriving Business & A Life You Love!
Imagine sitting drinking those cocktails, I bet you'd be loving life! Nobody ever said running your own business would be easy. But that’s not why we do it. We start our businesses because we’re passionate about something. Too often this passion falls to the wayside as we become overwhelmed with day-to-day operations and the demands of being an entrepreneur. Our personal lives suffer, and our business fails to grow. Here are three steps you can take to build a business and a life you love.
Take a moment to reflect on times where you’ve felt focused, calm, and productive - chances are during these times you were engaging in something that aligned with your authentic passions and beliefs. Many business owners feel pressured to wear a mask. Taking it off can be hard! Reflecting on what was it that first inspired you to start your own business is the crucial first step.
Next, you must reflect honestly on your mistakes. Being honest about your mistakes and hardships will allow you to learn and grow. Customers, clients, and fellow business owners will likely relate to your experiences and appreciate your bravery. Follow your passion and be honest about your strengths and shortcomings, while remaining compassionate towards yourself. This is integral to personal authenticity, which is the first step to building a business, and life that you love.
Know Your Vision
It’s hard to be happy and secure without a sense of direction. In business as well as in life we find fulfilment through achieving goals. Having a vision gives us a sense of purpose, and something to look to in hard times. Too many small business owners don’t know their vision or have concrete goals and plan for achieving them.
Many people say they are so busy that they don’t have time to make comprehensive plans. What they don’t realise is that taking time out to plan for the future provides a sense of stability, direction, and happiness. If a traditional business plan doesn’t appeal to you, ask your business advisor about different types of planning. It doesn’t have to all be about analysing figures and projecting sales. It’s just as important to define your dreams, ambitions, and your reason for doing what you do.
Strike a Balance
One of the most common problems for business owners is finding a healthy work-life balance. They feel overwhelmed with work, and so bring their job home with them to try to ease the workload. But this isn’t effective. Being busy all of the time is not a recipe for success. Working long, hard hours will burn you out and deplete your happiness and passion for life. Lack of sleep and ongoing stress will affect your performance at work and your health in the long term.
This is the same for your staff. A good business owner provides their employees with adequate breaks and facilities to rest and recover. Supporting one another in the workplace leads to a happier environment where everyone feels comfortable and at ease. If switching off your phone or spending more time out of your business seems like a tall order right now, you’re not alone! Consult a business mentor at Virtual Executive to make a plan and take back your life.

Here's a huge problem you face right now. It's knowing where to start and not having support to guide you along the way.
What makes this even worse is the fact that without the right tools you'll continue to find it all too hard! Which means you remain stuck in the same place, doing the same thing, but expecting different results.
I'm blown away by how many entrepreneurs I speak with who are not happy with where their business is, but MOST of them have no idea of what they WANT for their business.
