As a business coach, I am often hired for accountability and motivation. I help my clients deal with their busy lives that are jam-packed with home life, kids, messy house, husband, no sleep, animals, stress, and then not to mention the never-ending business to do list!
I often hear, “I just didn’t have time” or “it’s been so crazy.” Sound familiar? For my clients, it’s less about life distractions and more about what keeps them working on their business which comes down to one word”: motivation. Why is it so hard to get motivated? Let me share my thoughts.
