Why did you become an entrepreneur? You wanted the freedom that comes with it. Be your own boss. Set your own schedule. Live your life your way.
As time goes on, you realize that something isn’t adding up. You’re not spending your nights and weekends with your family. You’re not taking that vacation you promised yourself you’d take. You had to say no to dinner with friends… again. What happened?
Are you losing your mind?
I’m going to make a wild guess and say that you didn’t become an entrepreneur to work 24/7. But that’s exactly what a lot of business owners end up doing.
You want the freedom to be your own boss… but you still need to attract paying clients. In order to attract paying clients, you’re told you need to be consistent on social media, have a killer freebie to grow your email list, a website that makes you stand out from your competition, the right SEO on all your pages and posts, engaging content that tells your brand story, new sets of Pinterest pins every month for your content, and more stress than you can handle.
(Oh, you’ve never been told you need that last one?)
Meanwhile, your email inbox is so flooded with all the tips and offers from experts that you can barely find the emails that are actually important to you. And you were 15 minutes late to that client meeting yesterday and had to reschedule because your calendar is a mess…
