Work Life Balance: Your Business Defined


Do you find yourself trying to do too many things because you are supposed to do them? Or writing things on your almighty To Do List that you think you should?

As you run your creative businesses, whether it be a maker, vintage curator, or retail shop, the pressure to mirror other successful businesses is huge.  But, do these actions or steps really suit you and your business?

Comparison is inevitable, especially if you are trying to grow the business you have.  You can easily fall down the rabbit hole of feeling inadequate or defensive about how you have developed your business and that someone else must know something you do not. It's simply not the case.

Yes, there are methods and strategies that work.  The way to find what will work for you is to give yourself exclusive permission to define your business as a reflection of you and what you make. You make the rules. You know your instincts are correct. You define your business and will succeed by staying true to what makes it distinctly you.

In the quest for balance in your busy life, defining your business as only you can, will give you the confidence and freedom to feel successful and ready to move forward in your way.
