Are you feeling trapped in your business these days? As if there is too much to do that doesn’t feel good and you haven’t had time for the good stuff?
There is one thing that makes my heart hurt and that’s when a woman CEO tells me she feels bored and trapped in her business and it’s impacting her wellbeing.
If there is anything I’ve learned as a Brave Yes CEO and entrepreneur over the past almost 9 years, it’s this: Nothing in business is ever worth losing my own mental health and self care over.
We often go into being our own boss for the freedom. That was absolutely the case for me. I wanted to be home for my girls when they got home from school. I had been a latchkey kid in the early 1980s — as many of my GenX friends were — and so being home with them was important to me.
FREEDOM in entrepreneurship is vital.
Many of us learned in the 9 to 5 world that it’s not for us. we don’t want to be boxed in. We want …
- Freedom to do as we please — including taking better care of ourselves and our families.
- Freedom to be more fully ourselves — dress as we please, work at our best times and express ourselves our way.
- Freedom to use our creative genius — being in business allows our strengths to shine.
And yet eventually, just like with any longtime job, we can fall into a rut and forget that freedom was the mission. We can find ourselves feeling just as trapped in our business as we did in a regular full time job.
- We work more or longer hours
- We lose authentic ourselves by catering to the clients and customers
- We get trapped under the rubble of the daily work and lose sight of our gifts
- We get caught in a survival mode cycle
