The world of Start-ups and Entrepreneurialship excites me. Those feelings of adversity and overcoming it. Many times at is a struggle. But the thought of knowing that you are your own boss, and that your business helps other keeps you positive.
I am a start-up and I place a great amount of my "down time" to my business. I'm very happy doing so. Almost. I could really improve on the area of self-care by like 90%
Why am I using my business blog to discuss something so personal? We all admire and are in awe of entrepreneurs out there. They all seem to have it together. When I get up close and personal with my clients I discover this is far from the truth. I work with moms of children who struggle with guilt and lack of time for their understanding partners. Clients who have discovered that they have to relocate and start all over in terms of finances. I suffer from mom guilt... Spouse guilt... And most recently not taking care of myself guilt.
So every so often I will share be sharing a blog post in a series titled "On A Personal Note". I think it is important for us to know that there are struggles behind the scenes of an entrepreneur. Hey... I don't always feel as awesome as I portray my self (shout out to my professional photographer).
I put on a good front. And I am not going to go into detail about the fall coat in the store today that fit snuggly around my waist. Ridiculous. But, I would like to share in this post that I have decided to put myself first by starting a Learn To Run Program tomorrow. I have always wanted to take up running and have. Like a lot. But the key to success for me is always accountability. I have to show up and run 3x per week. The goal run in this program will be "The Resolution Run" which takes place on January 1st. (say what?!).
Yep. I will run 5k on January 1st. #smartGoal. I am looking forward to the ripple effects that will occur. Like I'm going to get some sleep. If I don't, I won't succeed. I will get to my goal size. I will eat better because I feel better and I will be healthy. I can't wait.
Thanks for reading. Before you go, what personal obstacles are you experiencing as an entrepreneur? Trust me... There is no judgment here.
