#entrepreneurlife full disclosure πππ
The past few weeks have been mega,Iβve been feeling really slow, and mentally exhausted. So Iβve been taking it a little slower, stepped back as much as I could from the business, but we can step back so much. We havenβt had a real break from the business for over a year. We have been pushing hard and because of this we are seeing some great results - donβt get me wrong we still have a long way to go, but we are moving forward in a way that we can be proud of. But this ofcourse means long hours, barely a day off and constantly being on. In this day and age you have to be across everything all the time. Fb messenger, IG direct messages, emails, texts all whilst working on building the business. We want our customer service to be top quality so not getting back to people in a timely manner is not an option, but being on all the time is exhausting and we need to find a bett r balance. We have increased our team this year with a fabulous person coming in 2 half days a week & this has helped immensely , and soon we may be able to get a little additional help in HQ, but until then we need to hold on. So getting to the gym to help increase energy levels, taking time away from the business when we can even if itβs in small tiny pieces of time s important, today we called an impromptu half day, a sleep in, a little time to tidy the house, gym time , a slow start - a pause button on the crazy if you will.
So my post today is to remind me that breaks are needed, to share with others that the #entrepreneurlife ainβt easy, that although through of social media feeds everything g looks hunky dory - behind the scenes we are pushing, working, building and carrying more then we can sometimes handle. Not looking for sympathy, not looking for anything really, just needed to share - thanks for listening to my essay!
Currently holding out until our as yet to be booked break in the glorious sunshine early December - yay for that! π πΉ π
