What Am I Doing?

What Am I Doing?

Did you start your business because you’re good at your craft and you love doing it?


But now you’re in business and have no idea how to join the dots?


Marketing, account keeping, branding, social media, growth & strategy, goals and paying staff, managing staff, managing clients…. <   All of this stuff is stuff you didn’t have to deal with as an employee and now you’re kinda like “Oh fuck. This is hard” *mind the language, but let’s be real here*


Don’t worry – it’s totally normal.


Most business owners start out as technicians – they are great at what they do. They have loyal clients, earn a good wage and don’t see their employer struggling so sure, it must be easy… (Maybe your boss was a great actor).


It’s not always easy, not in the beginning especially!


span style=”font-weight: 400;”>I’ll tell you what is easy though – getting disheartened, feeling as though you’re not good enough, becoming a slave to your business and feeling like a failure, disappointment or embarrassment.


Been There!


The key to this – is growth *duh*


But not just business growth, emotional, mental, physical, spiritual growth.


Being a true entrepreneur requires a constant drive to learn more and overcome hurdles – no matter how big the fears and challenges are.


Read books, do courses, invest in a coach (see what I did there).


Learn from the people who have done it before – and got it right.


They figured it all out, they got through the hard stuff so now they can teach you to do the same thing – and avoid some of the common mistakes and pitfalls that you will otherwise encounter if you try and go it alone.


Yeah, it can take a lot of courage to ask for help – but its a growth strategy, not a surrender.


Invest in your growth and education and you will see that asking for help isn’t a step before failure – its the step before success.


So stop feeling sorry for yourself!


Put your entrepreneur pants on and tell me, what are you going to learn first?


Where do you feel your biggest weakness lies?


Oh, and hot tip: don’t worry about the account keeping – pay someone else to do it. You don’t know what you’re doing and it will cost you a fortune come tax time – hire a bookkeeper now and avoid the headache.


Oh you can’t afford it? You can’t afford not to.


Just an hour a week will make a massive difference if that’s all you can afford to start with.
