Self Care is the New Black
For this episode, I’m turning my attention completely to the importance of self-care when working as an entrepreneur and business owner. All too often the list of things that need to get done piles up and self-care gets easily shoved aside to make time. After reflecting on how much my business has changed in the past few years and looking through the data, one big red flag was sticking out.
There was lots of yo-yoing in the data, months where we would have crazy high sales numbers and months that were a complete bust. To me, it was apparent that the months where I was not focusing on my own self-care, the business was suffering as a result. Because I’m the salesperson for my own company, when I was showing up as the best version of myself, the company was skyrocketing. I realized just how important self-care is, by getting in touch with myself and having a clear head so I can quickly make decisions and put my best foot forward.
I’ve decided to devote more time to make sure that I’m taking care of myself so that my business can benefit as well. That means taking time in the day to walk, to work out, or to unplug from all technology while at the spa. One of my personal goals is to start doing meditation seven days a week because self-care is crucial to having my business continue to grow and have record-breaking sales each month. Today is the day to start taking time for yourself and your own well-being, rather than sacrificing it for a few more hours of work.
