WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR?
Making my schedule to be a “stay at home mom” as my girls would tell you…. I’m not often home as I usually meet clients at their location, yet I’m here in the AM and PM when they are needing me.
Also, I can work from anywhere in the world. It’s the best part of my career. Only downfall, even with the help of technology, I screw up time zones all the time (lol).
WHAT IS THE MOST CHALLENGING PART OF BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR?
Maintaining my “self” time. I can be a workaholic because I love my work. Also, being a healer, does wear on me at times if I’m not being protective of my energy and gets me warn down. I am better now, but I have to work hard at practicing what I preach. Trying to be all things in my business and staying on top of it all is probably my biggest challenge. I have learned finally after 20 years not to do what I’m not great at.
WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT YOU DO FOR YOURSELF EVERYDAY?
Drink my morning cup of very, very strong coffee. Some sort of spiritual self-love for a minimum of 15 minutes daily. I might do an open to spirit silent walking meditation, pull an angel card and meditate on that answer or do my personal Release&Renewal. All of which I do either walking, running or riding. My schedule is so full and even if I need to multitask my exercise with my connecting to the universe, It’s a nonnegotiable.
WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO INVEST IN WHEN STARTING A BUSINESS?
Your brand and purpose. Why are you doing what you are doing. If you don’t know, others won’t either. Why do you get out of bed every day? Getting up on crappy days is so much easier when you know how important your purpose is to others. Your “why” is big enough to not focus on how much work it will be from that day forward.
WHAT’S YOUR GREATEST MOTIVATION?
To show as many people possible that they deserve to live the life of their dreams and raise their self-worth to see it manifest.
HOW DO YOU STAY FOCUSED/PRODUCTIVE AND MAKE THE BEST OF THE SAME 24 HOURS THAT EVERYONE ELSE HAS?
Plan, plan, plan and plan it again. I white board everything - old school - on the wall in BIG HUGE letters so it stars at me. I can’t avoid the plan.
Then I work down the list of the plan. Oh, and sticky notes and reminders in my phone for daily tasks on that plan.
WHO DO YOU LOOK UP TO/FOLLOW ON SOCIAL MEDIA/USE AS A MENTOR?
WHAT IS THE BEST PIECE OF BUSINESS ADVICE THAT YOU’VE EVER GOTTEN?
Pay attention to your pennies not your dollars. If you are not paying attention to the small things you are spending on, it will catch up and overwhelm your expenses and can get you in trouble. Don’t spend what you don’t have.
Learn cash flow…. It’s a game changer when you are on a tight budget.
Also, you need less than you think. Blood, sweat and tears are free. Most are gifted in their trade but avoid the basics that will make them money. Money is good, it lets you help more people.
WHAT IS THE BEST BUSINESS ADVICE THAT YOU’VE EVER GIVEN?
You can’t un-know what you have learned. So, when you are not shifting and growing, it is usually because you are not ready as opposed to not knowing what to do. It doesn’t matter if you are selling peas or parachutes, when you are ready, you are ready, and nothing will stop you.
WHAT DOES NO ONE TELL YOU ABOUT BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR?
It always takes longer than you think. Plan on it and you will get rattled less.
You will need to implement your own motivational plan.
Its lonely at the top, so don’t think it gets easier, it just gets more complicated. Plan on outside support to keep you focused on your vision.
