How do you get over the guilt of working
My passion is to help independent retailers like YOU to have a profitable retail business – without burning out.
Business doesn’t have to be all about stress and hard work – you can achieve success and enjoy the journey.
Unfortunately, it took me too many years of working more hours than I should and getting to the point of burn out, before I figured this out.
Even though I had a business degree, there was nowhere I could go to find out how to open or run a retail business.
There was no community of retailers who would openly share their knowledge or experience.
Most Independent Business owners I meet start their store for one of two reasons; to escape the 9-5 corporate grind and spend more time with their families or doing other things they love. Or to provide the opportunity to use their talents for their own gain or to give back to others. To me both of those things represent “freedom”.
Thing is, before long people realise being a business owner holds more responsibility and requires more than just showing up to work each day. Before you know it those endless lists of tasks start eating into that freedom you left a well paying job or time with your kids to achieve. And in walks GUILT. Boots and all.
In this episode of Bringing Business To Retail I want to share how guilt played out in my business and share some ways you can tackle your own feelings so you can get back on track to achieving the freedom you were searching for when you first started out.
