Burnt out? I’ve been there. You don’t have to stay there.
I used to think that being a badass was about doing the most work, the hardest, for the longest, for everyone else, and never stopping to bandage my own scrapes and bruises along the way. But that’s bullshit. I kept it up for a while, but that only leads to one place: BURN OUT.
Maybe this is true for you too. You’ve worked hard for years helping and taking care of others. You know this work is your calling, but the long hours and impossible workload are taking their toll. Your work, your clients, and your family are suffering as you become more and more burnt out.
I’ve been exactly where you are. It sucked. I took a break from my field and even thought I might leave it altogether. I felt lost and so unsure of how to find the balance I craved. I was so fearful that I couldn’t do it - that I couldn’t build the business and life that I needed.
These mindsets of fear and scarcity were holding me back - the beliefs that I wasn’t good enough or smart enough or organized enough to run my own business.
Once I broke through these, I began the road to building a life and business that allowed me to truly support my clients, show up for my family and friends, and take my own advice to invest in myself.
You want to build a thriving business around your life - not your life around your business.
You want an integrated, wholehearted life.
Maybe that sounds like a far-off dream. Perhaps you’ve taken a few steps to get started, but you’re not sure what to do next. Or you have a thriving business, but you’re still feeling stuck in a burn out cycle.
Wherever you’re at, taking that leap can feel risky and even a little bit lonely. But as Brené Brown puts it, “People who wade into discomfort and vulnerability and tell the truth about their stories are the real badasses.”
