You hit a wall in your business, you can’t seem to get a client to save your life, your roof is leaking, your kid needs braces, there is no food in the cupboard and you feel like you can’t take it anymore and you are not sure you can actually make it out this time.
Well, I know that I sure have been in that slump, like everything I was doing wasn’t working, the same way it used to work, nothing seemed to stick, and there were times when I questioned, was I really cut out to do this, was I going to make it, where my bills going to be paid, was I going to have a roof over my head, food on the table, shit, I was even going to have a table.
We all have those days, when we feel down in the dumps and like WTF is going to shift, because you can’t take another second of this BS and you just want to throw in the towel.
Can you relate, or is it just me?
I remember, this one time, well, there were many times, but I am going to share this one time, and mean things were really, really bad. I just moved from NY to TX with my husband(who left his job, no severance or anything like that), my two small kids (Summer was 1 and Kyle who was 4 at the time) and we were about 4 days in TX. We moved on a whim after I got the awareness that I needed to leave a very unsafe environment(but that’s a story for another day).
Anyway, we just moved and were were in TX for about 4 days, oh did I mention that it was the week of Thanksgiving here in the US? Well, you can imagine, that everything was pretty much shut down, no outside help, we tried to go to a shelter but that was no luck they turned us away, we tried to get assistance with food stamps but they turned us away because we did not have an address (ah seriously, that was kinda the point). John had been searching for a job to no avail and I was seriously calling every single person I had ever worked with in the past, and any person that had shown any interest in working with me (even though I was helping my clients to build a list, duh, it wasn’t something that I was actively doing, so I had no list).
Anyway, it was Thanksgiving morning and I remember sitting on the edge of the bed in this really crummy, and do mean crummy hotel room (you know the ones that cost less than $400 for the entire week), and I was holding back the tears and trying to hold myself together. John was sitting right in front me and Kyle and Summer were on this makeshift table and we were eating spaghetti for Thanksgiving dinner that we cooked on the one burner makeshift kitchen in the hotel with spaghetti we got from Target the day before.
I remember, thinking, WTF was I going to do, I had exhausted all avenues (or so I thought), John wasn’t having any luck getting a job, and I couldn’t make a sale to save my life, and we were out of money and out of a place to live in less than 3 days, by that point we already lived in the car (Kyle still has nightmares about that) and I felt like that wasn’t an option.
I was emailed my coach and basically vomiting on him about how nothing was working, I was stuck and I didn’t know what to do. He wrote back to me and said, you are not committed to making it happen, going back (meaning going back to NY) is still an option for you and as long as it’s still an option you won’t have the breakthrough that is going to allow you to stay here in TX.
Reading this email while holding back tears, trying to pull myself together and be strong, and pretend that everything was going to be okay while secretly thinking WTF are we going to do, I got pissed, I was livid, in fact, in that moment I hated him, I was pissed, how dare you say that to me, as you are in your nice cozy house with your dog (we had to leave or dog behind) eating your nice Thanksgiving meal and here I am in this shit hotel, eating crap spaghetti, not knowing how the hell I was going to survive another day.
I was seriously angry, that was until I realized he was right, going back was still an option, not making it was still an option, and as long as it was, well, then I guess I could go back and make believe that everything was okay and put myself and my kids in harm’s way cause you know, I just wasn’t strong enough, I guess I just wasn’t cut out to do this and be an entrepreneur, and actually make a life for myself, and create choice and help others.
And then, something inside of me shifted and I said to myself, fuck that, that is not who I am, I am a survivor, I will succeed, going back is NOT an option, and in that moment everything changed. Within 2 days everything started to come together, John got a job, I made a business trip that lead to my first 5 figure coaching client, which lead to an apartment, and the list went on and on.
So, why am I sharing this with you? And what can you learn?
Its simple, nothing changes until you decide it’s going to change, if going back to your shit job, or not making the money you want to make or fill in the blank is still an option for you then, guess what, you will default, you will go back, you will slide down the hill, and probably end up worse than you were when you started, because it’s still an option for you.
So the first step to changing anything is to decide, and then freaking actually commit (meaning, going back and wavering from that decision is NOT an option, and you are all in) and from there every opportunity will present itself, and you will actually be able to see it (because when going back is an option, you can’t actually see the opportunity, because it looks like work, it’s outside of your comfort zone, and it’s going to stretch you).
And once you decide and commit, you take that action, and you keep on going. You need to realize that right here, right now you have everything inside of you that you need, you have the Universe at your disposal who is ready and willing and waiting for your very command to pull the resources together to help you, but nothing, and I mean nothing happens until you decide and commit and then take the freaking action (even if it scares the crap out of you.) You will be okay, you will make it, you are meant to succeed, you do have everything you need.
But, I’ll tell you I sure as hell did not do it alone, I mean, yes, I did do it alone, cause the truth is we all do it alone, we have to, but you don’t have to be alone when you do it, support as an entrepreneur really isn’t an option, you are going to have bad days, you are going to want to feel like quitting, you are going to want to throw in the towel and you need someone on your side cheering you on, reminding you just how freaking powerful you are and that you are meant to succeed.

hey, I’m Kim + I am ridiculously passionate about helping you to work smarter and not harder + to realize how freaking amazing you actually are, exactly as you are and how easy business really can be when you are in alignment + simplify + add systems to organize your business + plan your business growth. I’ve been geeking out about online business, online marketing + systems + personal development + all that stuff since I created my first business back in 2006 + sold it.
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!
