What’s the #1 killer of dreams?…

The #1 killer of dreams

Before you read this blog, I need you to buckle up, this could get rough. 

Still here?😊

Ok, here goes…

Do you know what the number one killer of dreams is?…

It’s not failed ideas.

It’s not debt.

It’s not lack of money.

It’s not doubters or critics.

It’s not frustration.

It’s not overwhelm.

It’s not bad decisions.

It’s not even fear of the unknown, or making mistakes.

It’s… procrastination.

The deadly “I’ll-do-it-later virus”.

If we want something extraordinary to happen in our lives, we have to put in a certain amount of effort to make it happen.

If you don’t start, you can never get going, and if you never get going, that’s one sure way to quickly fail.

So my word of advice to you is to focus your energy solely on starting one small thing today.

  1. Take a small step and invest in a book or a course that will help you with the information and guidance you need to get going
  2. Then take another small step in actually implementing and acting on the information and guidance
  3. Then take another small step in getting constructive feedback from people you respect to see if you’re on track
  4. Then take another small step in implementing that feedback

Then, keep repeating 2, 3 & 4 over and over...

I think you get the picture.

Follow this to the letter and you will make it.

Everything you need is already inside you…what could be missing is structure, clarity and guidance to help you ‘connect the dots’ and steer you in the right direction.

Get laser-focused and take one small step forward…

You got this👊🏼

What’s your #1 job as a small business owner?

As a small business owner our job is to stay inspired

Your #1 job as a business owner is to stay in a state of inspiration.

Because when you’re inspired, you’re more productive, resourceful and creative.

When you’re creative, you can come up with new ideas for products, steer the direction of your company and look after your people (customers and employees) better.

But it’s tough to do any of that if you’re in a bad state of anxiety or mental stress, health or money issues, that can make you lose your joy for whatever reason.

And without an inspired ‘you’ at the helm doing all those positive things, your company could eventually fall apart.

This is life and these things are sometimes unavoidable.

Your job is to get back into a state of inspiration where everything is exciting and you feel like life is literally flowing from you.

So how do you get there?

It’s different for every person.

But science shows it’s not working harder – it’s actually taking TIME OFF and resting and recharging, something you’ll know a lot about if you’re an introvert like me😄

It’s something I personally try my best to maintain – a healthy work-life balance.

I tend to get renewed when I learn and do something NEW. New ideas, new products, new sights, new anything really.

How do you get into an inspired, elevated state of mind?

Let me know, I’m genuinely curious.

Avoid burnout as an introverted small business owner, use automation!

Make automation your sidekick.

As a small business owner, you are the superhero of the business world!

Seriously, you wear many hats, juggle multiple tasks, and somehow manage to keep your sanity intact.

But even superheroes need a break (esp. if you’re an introvert😊) and that’s where automation comes in as your trusty sidekick💪🏽

Let’s face it; nobody wants to spend hours on end doing mundane, repetitive, boring tasks.

Whether it’s entering data or sending out marketing emails, these tasks can quickly become a real drag on your energy levels, leaving you feeling burnt out and exhausted.

That’s where automation comes in to save the day, giving you time to focus on more important things, like coming up with visionary new product ideas or finally taking that damn vacation you’ve been dreaming about for ages.

Plus, let’s be honest; there’s something incredibly satisfying about seeing your automated system work its magic while you sit back with a cup of coffee☕and erm…do nothing 😄

What’s automation got to do with you?

Automation is the use of technology to complete repetitive tasks without human intervention. It can help you save time, increase efficiency, and ultimately avoid burnout 😞

So, how can you incorporate automation into your small business?

Start by identifying the tasks that are taking up most of your time and energy.

Then, look for tools or software that can automate those tasks. For example, you can use,

  • Scheduling software to handle appointments
  • Or a social media scheduling tool to automate your social media posts
  • Or an autoresponder to send out emails

And the best part?

Once you’ve set up your automation systems, you can sit back and relax, knowing your business is running without you having to lift a finger. Well, except for the occasional high-five to your trusty automation sidekick🙌🏼

So, embrace your inner superhero and learn how to use automation to be your sidekick in the quest for small business success. It’ll be good for you and your business!

You got this 👊🏼
