The village let me down

These last few days have shaken me to my core and made me reassess my business, what I'm doing, and whether it's all worth it.

As a parent running a business, you know it takes more than just us to do everything professionally and personally—it takes a village! For some, it's made up of family, friends, daycare, school, after-school care, sporting activities, and the rest. Whatever yours is, you know that when one part falls down, it can feel like the walls are crashing in.

And that's exactly what happened to me this week. The people I relied on let me down and left me feeling like a sh*t mum. It impacted my mental health and my business and had me completely shut down for 2 full days. I needed time to process it and make a new plan.

Thank goodness my parents are around and not off traveling at the moment. They've picked up the pieces and supported the tough decisions that had to be made.

The whole situation got me thinking a lot about my business. Should I be doing it, or should I be a stay-at-home mum for Osten because he's only little once?

I've had to:

  • re-evaluate what I want for my business and family;

  • simplify what I offer (again, I know, but business is always an evolution, right!);

  • decide to change my language, no more strategy, high level, confusing lingo;

  • work out how to do what I love and what I know that I'm good at.. impact as many business owners' lives as possible.

This all boiled down to my course and coaching, where I share and teach my framework of client experience, systems, and marketing to make being in business easy. So that when life throws curveballs, your business auto-pilot kicks in.

And that's exactly what we're going to do, so if you're ready to set up your auto-pilot, hit reply and let's chat!
