I meet a lot of business owners who say they want to take their business to the next level, make a lot of money, and make a great impact in this world, but when it comes down to it, they are not doing what it takes to get there.
Often, the reason they are not doing what they need to do is because they are frozen in fear and doubt. I recently spoke with a business owner who said she knew what she needed to do, but she couldn’t get herself to do it no matter how much she wanted her business to grow. She was afraid of doing the things she needed to do and make the investments she needed to make to take her business to the next level. As a result, her business was staying in the same place, and she wasn’t making enough money to live the lifestyle she wanted. In fact she was giving up a lot and living on just bare necessities.
I recently made a large investment in my business that brought up a lot of fear for me. I hadn’t made this kind of investment in my business before but I knew it was the right thing to do to take my business to the next level. The day after committing to the investment, I made more money in my business than my entire investment, and more than I had ever made in one month in my business!
This does not come as a surprise to me as I’ve seen this happen many times both in my own life and my clients’. When you are taking the action you need to take, you’re telling the universe that you are serious, and ready to move forward. When you take a leap in faith, the universe supports you and rewards you.
But there’s an epidemic of fear going on in the small business world. So many talented business owners who are terrified of taking the steps they need to take to get where they want to go. They run their business based on fear and doubt and make their decisions accordingly. Decisions that are making them stuck and that cripple their success. Are you one of them?
If you are, let me ask you: What do you really want your business to look like? Are you taking the steps you need to get there? If not, what specifically is holding you back?
I suggest you make a commitment to yourself today that you will no longer make decisions based on fear and doubt and that you are going to start doing what you need to do to get the results you are looking for. Make decisions based on where you want to go, rather than where you are now and your business will skyrocket before you know it. Imagine what your life will look like when that happens. How would your life change? What difference would it make for you?

This whole business owner thing is not for the faint of heart, there is a reason why most businesses fail!
While the road to burnout doesn’t look the same for everyone on it there are some similarities you typically experience on this path!
- You’re always in the weeds of your business
- You don’t have efficient systems and processes (or maybe none at all)
- You aren’t delegating effectively
- You can’t take time off
- You’re trying to do too many things at once + wearing all the hats
It’s exhausting just thinking about it! But there’s a way off the hamster wheel!
If you’re overwhelmed, overworked, stressed out, and worried that if you take time off the bottom will fall out from beneath you and your business will fall apart.
Then, you are in the right place my friend, been there, done that, got the tee-shirt and I’d love to support you in ending the cycle!
