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.
With so much going on all the time, it’s vital to disconnect a time or two. So, take a hike! (Or a walk if you’d rather).
It may sound obvious, but going for a walk or a hike and getting out in nature can be very helpful when you’re having a day.
Life is not always rainbows and butterflies… and that’s okay.
Sometimes you have to do what you have to do… and make the most of it.
Yes, of course, you take breaks, you give the kiddos attention, and you cross off your to-dos. Yet, we know what happens to the best-laid plans…

Here’s the truth: it’s hard to drop the habit pounded into us from school age on. We need to work hard, we go to school around 8-3, we work 9-5, and so on and so forth.
However, you likely became an entrepreneur for more freedom. Many of us often fall into bad habits of becoming workaholics. An email pings and you jump to answer it. A message comes through your DMs, and you NEED to answer it right that minute… but do you?
How do you see vulnerability: strength or weakness? The view on being vulnerable has been taking a bit of a turn lately, from what I’ve seen.
Where it used to be commonplace to “suck it up” or not overshare, we are realizing the impact of those decisions.
While I admittedly have a sign that says “suck it up, buttercup” on my bookshelf, I try to convey the importance of voicing your opinion and feelings in this house. Consequences are part of the “suck it up” portion in my eyes.
When it comes to your business, are you all in?
Are you owning your role??
Do you treat it like your career or like a side hustle that you do here and there?
