So, I decided to take the week off to refocus and clear my mind of all the business mess I had swirling around. I tried to write things down to shift it from keeping me awake at night but that wasn’t working, I figured I must need a break.
As an entrepreneur it is hard to not think of work or how you can make this thing or that thing better. Oftentimes some grand idea pops into you head and you want to execute it before it seeps into those corners of your mind where you forget stuff.. Oh, that’s just me?. Oops.
No matter how hard I tried to fill my schedule this week with other things outside of working and promoting my business, something would always creep up or I would find myself checking Facebook or God forbid Twitter. I get sucked into Twitter because I get so much motivation from my followers that it usually inspires me to tweet encouraging words myself.
I must also admit that I made a few calls to check on my clients. A break is never a break when you are in it to help someone other than yourself.
Please do not think that everything is peaches and cream for me because it isn’t. I struggle just like you, as a mother, as a wife, and as a businesswoman. Trying to juggle tasks is somewhat of a boost for me but that is not to say I do not get overwhelmed or take on more than I should have. It happens a lot. Even now, it is 3:10 a.m. and here I am blogging instead of sleeping.
I always tell my clients that it is so important to be organized and it is. It makes your business and your life in general run more smoothly. But my goodness, if I do not start taking my own advice I am going to be a lost cause.
I attempted to hire a coach but I am not so sure that is in the works for me right now. I have been pounding my brain trying to figure out how I am going to pay her because she is awesome, just one phone conversation with her gave me so much clarity. But when you run a business and people owe you money it can get financially tight. Credit cards are maxed out and my business is all of the finance I get. I have to call her tomorrow and let her know and oh how I do not want to. Do you want to do it for me?
Even in my over extensions and lack of organization God still finds me worthy to bless me though. I managed to get a new client tonight. He messaged me via Facebook. Its just a consult right now but I love helping out and we will see where it goes from there.
Although I am exhausted I have no intentions on stopping anytime soon. I always wanted to touch peoples lives and here I am. Its not where I want to be right now but I can see it coming and I am doing what I have always wanted to do. I am really living my dreams! I can feel it even. Keep pushing and believe in yourself and everything will work out for your good.
Stay prayed up my loves.
