The other day, I was feeling like a pretty bad mom.
From the minute we woke up, it was go-time for taking the tiny one to the sitter’s, doing school, running errands, going to our appointments, then following up with working until 2:30 am to get my client work completed as promised.
Is reflecting on your business (and life?) something you do regularly?
As business ebbs and flows, often you as a person do as well. Both will grow and change, but perhaps in different ways.
The ability to reflect monthly, weekly, or daily can be extremely helpful in guiding you when you are inundated with information and advice from others.
Reassessing your business efforts regularly may help you gain clarity.
Target audiences, offers, zones of genius… A lot of things go into figuring out what you want to do and how to best go about becoming successful (also, there’s no cut-and-dry way of making that happen, but I digress).
Blowing off steam before you overheat or explode is vital.
In business and in life, it’s important to release that tension before it becomes a bigger issue or it seeps out in unintentional ways.
Squirrel-brain or the next shiny thing happens a lot as an entrepreneur. At times, we have a hard time figuring out how to rein it in.
We get “inspired” or have this light-bulb moment and forget to complete the first great idea we had or spread ourselves over many different ideas at one time.
Beyond contracts, you want to get paid for the work you do. I hope. So, you need invoicing systems: help streamlining operations in your business.
An invoicing system also helps you keep track of your expenses, income, and profits.
