One of the things I constantly come across as a business coach is talking to women who feel burned out. We start out passionate and ready to start a business and then as then get overwhelmed with all of the to-do's, must-do's and ins and outs of running a business.
None of us set out to start a life-draining business, which is why I focus on teaching women how to build profitable online businesses that are designed around their dream life.
If you have been feeling overwhelmed by the whole online business world, then today I want to give you a few tips on how to create a business that is sustainable and that you love!
Tip #1: Start by deciding what your ideal life looks like
First things first, your life. That is the most important thing. If you want to live a life you love you have to be intentional about it. Determine what you want your day to day to look like, when you want to rest, have time off, and what you want to do during that time. Decide what you want your relationships and health and self-care to look like and make those things a priority.
Tip #2: Now decide what your ideal business looks like
Now, do the same thing for your business. When do you want to work? What do you want to do? How do you want to do it? Who do you want to serve? What is your work schedule? You get to be the CEO of your life and your business!
Tip #3: Set financial goals
Now let's talk about the practical steps to create your ideal life and business, the finances. You need to determine how much money you want to make each month in order to help you achieve that life and business. Get really clear on those numbers.
Tip #4: Decide on your services/products/offerings
Once you have your financial goals you want to get clarity around how you are going to make the money. What value are you going to offer in return for what you charge? Map out what you want to do and how you want to offer it.
Tip #5: Set your # of clients
Lastly, you want to determine how many clients you can and want to work with at a time in order to meet those financial goals and also not exceed your life priorities. Pick a number that feels good and doable to you and that you will be able to show up for 100%!
It's surprising how many entrepreneurs never go through this process or figure out these things. It's part of becoming a business owner and making the mindset shift to go from employee to entrepreneur.
