Being a business owner is extremely exciting and fulfilling, however this does not always come without challenges and can at times be a very lonely and a daunting world. This is exactly how I experienced the business world, even with staff and family member’s support, there are subjects that can’t be discussed with these individuals.
I pride myself in running neat, clean, and efficient enterprises. Always ready for a challenge and ensuring the win. Very little demotivates me and my “I will figure it out attitude”, contribute to my success. Different skill sets and thinking out the box has been beneficial.
However, even though all the boxes were ticked, and everything was going well for me, I was still not achieving and living the dream that I had envisioned for myself. All I had done was buy myself a job, at the time I did not realise this and was totally committed and motivated to reach my goals and make my dreams come true.
After a business cycle – we start all over again. My life was on “loop” – pitch up – do – repeat, just like a hamster wheel. There would always be a matter to attend to, a lot of these activities were not even worth one rand. Keeping busy is not the same as being productive, in fact we can keep ourselves busy to avoid the reality of the situation.
It was this realisation and the promise: increase your turnover, that led me to make the decision to stop doing this on my own. The realisation that I had had enough of the hamster wheel made me sign on the dotted line and seal the deal with my business coach. Yes, he came with expertise, and the promise that he is more than just a coach. At first, I was unsure about my decision and would even be “smarter”, but eventually the relationship was in a fantastic state. The benefit of an “out sider” inside your business assisting with direction, focus, goals and understanding, is without a doubt one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Today, I successfully manage 3 entirely different business’ and can spend the much needed and wanted time with my family. My personal and business goals are set for the next 12 months. I am excited and look forward to the journey with confidence because I know that I am no longer alone nor am I working in my business’.
Make your next 12 months – YOUR journey to success.
Let’s just START ….
