Pep Talk: What's the rush?

We can be so hard on ourselves. We often have high expectations of where we want to be in our business and how quickly it’ll take to get there so that when we fall short, we just focus on everything that went wrong.

If you’re feeling shame or upset about the speed your business is moving forward, grab a cup of coffee and have a seat - we need to have a chat.

In this episode, I want to give you a pep talk surrounding why we feel the need to rush when growing our business. I’ve definitely felt these emotions too and I want to create a safe space for you to reflect on the feelings behind our disappointment.

There is such a strong undertone in the business world of getting to a certain level of financial milestone as quickly as possible but if you’re so busy looking into the future, you’re missing out on your life today.

So if you’re feeling down on yourself and disappointed that you didn’t get where you wanted to by midway through the year, listen to this episode and take the time to really consider how much you have achieved instead.

I guarantee if you look back on where you started, you’ll be so proud of where you are now.
