As a business coach, I often see entrepreneurs make the biggest mistake at this time of the year where they decide to put their business on the back burner so they can get through the holidays.
I get it! Trust me, I know the feeling. You have so much going on, you’re not seeing the clients or products sell and you’ve had enough!
But putting your business on the back burner means you will lose your potential clients interest. Then by the time you are ready to pick up again, it’s like starting over.
And because you are putting your business on the back burner you are allowing the gremlins to win. For those that don’t know what I mean by gremlins, it’s the inner chatter we allow to continue.
Yes, business is hard. Yes, it’s even harder during the holidays. But it’s about planning, tweaking and being consistent. So, if you are one of those who is planning on putting your business on the back burner what specifically haven’t you done in your business? What specifically have you avoided in your business? What inner chatter do you continue to allow?
I am having a Planning and Vision Book Workshop this Saturday at the Princeton Venture Co-Working Hub in Watertown. This might be the very thing you need to help you get through the holidays. You can check it out by going to www.doreendilger.com/planningworkshop.html
For those that do manage, what things do you do to help with the stress of the holidays?
Have a great week!
