I Quit 10 Times!
Feeling overwhelmed in your business and like you’re ready to quit! Don’t worry you’re not alone – I’ve been there numerous times. Check out my four tips I use to help when I feel this way.
Running a business can be overwhelming. And sometimes, you may just want to quit. I’ve been there too. Which is why I’m sharing my four tips for what I do when I’m in that place.
First, take a break! One of the great things is it’s your business, which means you can allow yourself to take a break. Go take a walk, play with your kids, or pet your dog. Anything to take your mind off your business for a bit.
Second, get some perspective. Call up your business bestie to chat. Let them know what you’re thinking. Talk it out. It’s always great to have someone to bounce ideas off of and just talk things through with.
Third, shut off social media. Whew. This can be a hard one. Many of us use social media frequently for our businesses. But if we’re not careful it can be easy to get caught up with what our competition is doing or what new ideas someone is putting out. We can also get discouraged if we see a similar idea to ours already out there. But guess what? We each have a unique perspective and a unique twist to our business. Shut off that social media and stop comparing.
Finally, go back through your reviews and kind emails. Some people also use a gratitude journal. Just take a moment to focus on what is going well in your business, your happy clients, the amazing work you’ve already done. You’ve got this!
