How do you want to show up in your life and business? If you’re an entrepreneur, that means you are one of the lucky ones who get to design your day and your life. If you are doing your own thing, that means that you don’t have a boss to answer to. There are no rules to follow.
So today, I want to ask the question.
How’s that going?
In my experience, I fell sort of backwards into entrepreneurship. I found myself out of a job, living in Mexico (of all places), and home with a two-year-old. I had been working in hospitality—and naturally started applying for jobs. But as a new mom, there was something completely counterintuitive about working from home (which is what I had been doing at my previous job) to going “back on property” as they say in the industry. Back to long hours and high stress.
This is what prompted me to start my own thing—which, at first, was a marketing agency. Needless to say, it has been a long and winding journey. I have had to learn a lot of hard lessons (like the time I hired a terrible web designer who told me they could code but was lying). A story for another time….
But, in the journey of working for myself I have had to change the way I shape my days, the way I show up as a leader, and the confidence I carry into the work I do. It hasn’t been easy.
So, for you, today, I invite you to go inward. Are you living the dream life you imagined when you thought about starting your business—or do you feel lost, defeated, and completely burnt out?
If so, here are 5 things that have completely changed my life and how I show up as a leader. My intention is to lend you some inspiration to incorporate these practices into your life, or at least begin to explore how some of these things could play out in your situation.
5 things that Change how you show up as a leader in Life and Business
1. Just in Time Learning
2. Plan your week before it starts
3. Chunk your days by topic
4. Plan your meals
5. Create a vision for yourself—and take small actions to step into it every day
So there you have it. The five (pretty simple) things that have totally changed my life. Which one did you resonate with most? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
