I was recently honoured to have been chosen to write an article for Sharp Women Magazine on the subject of LOVE… for your Business.
Do you remember when you first started your business and how in love you were? Nothing mattered except building a solid foundation that your business could stand upon. I remember being so sleep-deprived, but still so excited that I was finally ‘living the dream’, and able to escape the 9-5 drudgery. Fast forward through client objections, pricing struggles, recessions, and growth hurdles… sometimes it’s hard to stay as passionate as you once were. Sometimes, we just have to make it happen ourselves.
I don’t know about you, but being in business is a bit like a love story. As with every relationship, you have your ups and downs, and everything in between.
There are times when:
- Your business is the love of your life and nothing else matters
- You survive on ‘rinse and repeat’ simply out of comfort and wanting to stay safe
- You can’t stand the thought of dealing another day in your business… ever.
Every one of these states is normal and believe me.. I experience them all on a weekly basis!
In this article, I identify two essential components that help me to want to shout out the love of my business from the rooftop. If you would like to read it, here is the link for a free subscription. Let me know what it would take for YOU to shout out your love from the rooftop.
