Let me fill you in on a little secret: Your mindset might be the thing that’s holding you back in your business!
If you feel like you’re stuck within your business, missing the clarity to keep moving forward, or starting to feel burnt out in your creative business, then this episode is just for you!
I’ve made each of these 3 mistakes myself over the last 4 years and hope that in sharing these, I can help save you some time and headaches on your own entrepreneurial journey.
Here are the 3 MAJOR mindset mistakes you could be making in your business:
Mindset Mistake #1: Operating out of the “All or Nothing” mindset rather than embracing imperfect progress
- Listen in to hear about what the All or Nothing Mindset is
- Tune in to hear how you can practically embrace imperfection & the key to taking imperfection action
Mindset Mistake #2: You burn out from a lack of boundaries with your clients
As creative entrepreneurs, we LOVE what we do for work! This heart for our work is amazing and necessary but it becomes very easy to get into a cycle of being busy and hustling! While trying to serve our clients well, we overstep our own personal boundaries sometimes — which leads to a major case of burnout.
There IS a way to run your business where you’re serving your clients well (and *heck* every over-delivering!) without burning yourself out.
Your business’ MESSAGING should put your client as #1, but your actual business STRUCTURE and backend should put YOU as #1.
Because if you’re not at 100%, then neither is your business. YOU, are your business’ #1 asset, my friend.
Tune into the podcast to hear about how to start building a business that supports a life that you truly love living day in an day out!
Mindset Mistake #3: You’re getting stuck taking bold action in your business
You have a HUGE vision for your life and business — but your fear is getting in the way of making progress towards it.
OR You have a ~ton~ of ideas but are paralyzed on which to prioritize & take action on first!
Clarity comes with action and taking those baby-starting steps.
It does help to have an overall vision that’s guiding your overall success and outlining what would be helpful to move towards.
But it’s freeing to know that you WON’T know it all when you’re first getting started. You figure things out as you go along.
Don’t let perfection get in your way of getting started and putting something truly beautiful out into the world!
If you can visualize the outcome, trust that the next-right-step will present itself to you.
And when it does, DO. THE. DANG. THING. And thennnn worry about what comes next!
What is ONE step that you can take TODAY to start making progress on a really big goal or dream of yours? Schedule it in and then go do it!
