Self-care and being a business owner should be a combination all business owners should keep near to their hearts. NOT many people do it because .. to some it wastes time and you know what that’s bull shit. Let’s be blunt here. NO one takes the time to do it. So many of us sit here in front of our phones or computers and maybe drink that Starbucks latte because it’s the thing to do. BUT how many people raise your hand if you take the time to go for a walk or read a book that’s HAS NOTHING to do with business or go cook you’re breakfast or lunch or even you’re dinner? How many of us actually sit down and meditate before we start our day. ( Raises hand) How many of us actually sit down and journal about our week or our goals or better yet, how we are feeling? ( Raises hand) Running a business takes a total on the body and at times our mental health. So many brush this off because “ We need to look cool Instagram and we need to show off that new designer handbag or take a picture of us being in Bali because again we need to look cool online. To show that we have made it. That we are making over a 1 million a year. The sad thing is a whole generation is stereotyped because.. will we do this. NOW I barely post I’m at Starbucks on my profile on Instagram or Twitter. If I do it’s on my personal account to post a mini-review of a new drink and about 100% of the time my BFF asks how it is. BUT other than that I can’t and many others are defined by this stereotype.
You’re an adult. No one’s going to give a rats ass you had 100K+ Instagram fans back when you were 22 when you’re in a retirement home .
Are people going to care? HELL NO.
I’m being brutal I know but let’s be 100% honest here. You are on this planet for a short time. Take time to travel, to learn from your experiences and take time to heal any Bull shit from you’re past. Your business is another chapter of your life. Give it a few hours each day and take care of yourself first.
