Are you trying to get everything done all by yourself? Do you feel overwhelmed with the amount of information to process, tasks to complete, decisions to be made?
Welcome to Mindfully Organized 2 Minute Tips I am Rose Hawley-Perry, The De-clutter Your Mind So Your Soul Can Shine Coach and in today’s episode I am going to rant for a little bit.
I don’t know exactly why, but many, many women entrepreneurs including myself prior to this want to figure it all for our ourselves. Spending money on getting help with something “I can figure out myself”, getting help with the small routine tasks, asking someone who is succeeding at doing what you want to do for specific advice. All these things seem ridiculous and a waste of time and money and energy.
But let me tell you, I realized that I was flat out wrong. When I looked back into my 15 year career in the business world, I did not move from Program Assistant to Director of Operations all by myself. Admittedly, I did a lot of research on my own, I figured out the right people to ask and the right questions to ask those people. But I always said, oh, I don’t know much I just know that right people to ask. But moving into the entrepreneurial life I lost that knowledge, it felt like a failure to ask, or a imposition on the other person or ….I know you get it.
The truth of the matter is that we all can use help. There is NO successful person that has done it alone.
I am an absolutely wonderful coach when it comes to decluttering, mind, body, space. I can help you let go of the stuff that is weighing you down. But why should I spend all my time trying to figure out the business side of getting my message out there to you. It is like trying to reinvent the wheel and we all know how silly that is.
So what do you do? Ask for help, if you are struggling with housework ask a friend to come over. If you are struggling in business, hire a business coach. If you need some free time see if someone can come babysit your kids for the evening. If you want to declutter your mind so your soul can shine hire me.
The other piece of this puzzle for business is mentors and I will discuss that in next week’s tip.
I know this is hard, especially at first! But the very best thing I ever did for Mindfully Organized is hire my business coach! She is a blessing for me, my business and my relationship. You do not have to do this alone.
