5 Things I've learned in Online Business that you may not be considering•
Okay...phewww! Take a deep breath, Krystle.
So I've just had a completely mind-altering, crazy aftermath of a shitstorm, post mini-break that really shouldn't have set me back as much as I thought it did.
I had a workshop to run back in my home town...but that doesn't count as work does it? (Insert crazy business lady face). Because I left everything else to ferment in my absence, on my seven-hour drive back home, it hit me like a tidal wave.
Instead of taking a step back and reassessing the situation and getting my little ducks in a row, my head began spinning like crazy! "WHAT HAVE I DONE? Why on earth would I put my feet up when I have so much to do? I own a business, I can't take any me time!"
Well...a little birdie decided to kindly remind me that I am only human and that because I own my own business I really can control everything in a way that suits the kind of lifestyle that I want! (Psssst so can you!)
So here you have it. An episode of 5 things that I've learned along the way that you should keep in mind when running an online business. Perhaps things that you haven't even considered. These are the things that I needed to remind myself about when I was in absolute panic mode.
So if you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders, have a listen and see that you've probably got it covered, this is a slow burn not a print!
0.29: I gave myself a rest…oh boy! So I usually have a pretty good workflow but this was what happened after I came back from my workshops.
03.40: Want to know the secret to the nitty-gritty of creating a podcast? This is my process.
05.43: I was a melting pot of stress and hustle!!! Until….
07.23: My internal processor was broken, and I am Queen at internalizing everything. So after a blah blah session with someone who knows and loves me, making me see just how far I’ve come, I was able to give myself the grace I needed (yep between episode 7 and now, I’d drifted away from me ol’ mate, Grace).
10.00: Your passion project is always a blur between work and play. Sometimes I need stop and take my own advice.
12.08: Excuse me while I let my (bleeping) guard down.
13.35: Number 1: It takes persistence. “Yes Krystle this is obvious,” you say. But I mean it. When you’re deflated you still need to show up.
17.38: Persistence despite resistance. Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone.
20.48: Number 2: Resilience. Some people are just super shitty and will poop all over your parade. This is how you come out of the stinky situation.
27.46: Number 3: Your shop is open 24/7. You need to be where people are going to see you.
31.28: Setting boundaries for your online presence. You are a boss!
34.20: Number 4: Marketing is pivotal to your success. If no one sees it then frankly… your biz doesn’t exist. Let’s get a bit obsessed with what marketing can do for you.
27.21: Number 5: Your business is what you make of it. Make it suit you and your lifestyle. You get to decide EVERYTHING.
40.17: When you’re in a crazy, messy headspace, change your perspective.
42.22: Recapping it all and taking your control back girlfriend!
I hope that this will encourage you for those duller days.
