How to Have Your Business Support YOU

Do you remember what it was like before you started your business? Those moments where you had the idea and dream, and were hoping to leave your 9-5 to make it happen? 

Did it sound like this:

"I can't wait to leave this 9-5 and start my own business so I can work more hours for less money!"

Yeah, probably not. We start businesses because we have personal goals and aspirations, and we hope owning our own business will reinforce that. 

Maybe you wanted more time with the family, or limitless income. Maybe you wanted to freedom to work from anywhere and dictate your own hours. 

So often we fall into the trap of owning a job and not a business. We sacrifice our pay and work long, exhausting hours with the idea that one day it'll stop. 

Unfortunately, this is all backward. 

Let me start by saying that if you own a business, it's going to be hard work. There will be seasons where you'll have to put in more hours or your profit bonus is slightly smaller than normal. That's okay- we just don't want it to be the norm.

Take some time today to revisit your personal goals. Why did you start this business? What do you value most? Is the business reinforcing it, or preventing?

Block 10 minutes in your calendar today to reflect on this question!
