Knowing how to manage your business and yourself when sh*t goes sideways is key! So here are 3 tips to check yourself and get back on track!
GIVE YOURSELF GRACE
Seriously, go easy on yourself. Give yourself the same grace you’d give a friend or a partner or your child. As much as we’d like to think we’re superwoman/man, we’re not. Running a business is hard work, so go easy on yourself.
Without boundaries, you’re slowly pouring water on a fire that will inevitably burn out. Whether you’re two months into business or two decades into business, boundaries are CRUCIAL. Set them. Follow them. Adjust them as needed. Boundaries are going to be your saving grace when shit hits the fan.
