There’s always all this talk about women doing and having it all.
I have an opinion on it ~ “all.”
I believe we’re actually not able to DO it all. It’s a myth. There’s always something (or someone) that gets left out or, worse, we wreak havoc on our body, mind and spirit.
We need support, in life and in business (the village thing needn’t only apply to raising children).
And we need this support not only to save our important (and not-so-little internal operating systems) and enjoy life but to see leaps and huge growth in our business. Simple as that.
I not only believe this but have seen it to be true in my life and the lives of clients and colleagues around me. The second that I personally allowed true support into my business, the business, and my creativity, grew exponentially.
True: The quicker you delegate in your business and focus on your real areas of brilliance and genius, the quicker your business will double in income. How’s that for tangible?
So…get cozy with an assistant (virtual or not), interns (www.monstertrak.com), coaches and mentors (there are STELLAR ones out there), not to mention get hiring web masters, a designer, a bookkeeper etc. And don’t just keep them for a short time…keep them for a looong time (as long as you want to have a thriving business, anyway). It may sound like a lot of cash flow moving out of your hands, however, it all shakes out. And, really, has any uber successful woman in business not had support? No.
True: Once we decide we want it all, we must make a another choice. If there’s no turning back from living a big, beautiful life of entrepreneurship, we must make another big choice. And that choice is deciding to not do it all. We can have what we want ~ we can have it all ~ but the first step is not doing it all.
If you haven’t done so already or if you’ve just taken baby steps, declare a new life, really, and a new way of not only asking for help and support but learning to receive it over and over and over again. Giddily.
Success doesn’t skimp on herself. 😉
