Episode 363: The Importance of Refilling Our Cups & Running Our Businesses On Systems w/Kelly Roach
As moms and entrepreneurs, one thing we’re often guilty of is putting ourselves at the bottom of our long to-do lists. How does this negatively impact our kids and businesses? Why should we treat self-care as an urgent essential in our lives? Why are systems the only way we can grow a business that won’t burn us out?
On this episode, business growth coach and author, Kelly Roach, shares the mindset shifts that changed her life and how to add systems and leverage into our businesses to give ourselves more freedom.
Our kids don’t listen to us—they model after us. And the best way to be a great mom is by being a happy person. -Kelly Roach
3 Things We Learned From This Episode
Life isn’t perfect, but we can find beauty in it (04:23 – 04:53)
The human experience is filled with crisis, turmoil, and juggling acts all mixed with the good stuff. You can find reason to be sad or wish your life was perfect, but you also have the opportunity to find the beauty in life and dig deep to make the best of it.
Put self-care in the “essential” category, not a luxury we can do without (08:28 – 09:15)
Most of us categorize working out as a luxury, but we have to make the mindset shift that it is an essential. Kelly works out during the business day, and she considers training a business priority. Exercise is essential to our happiness, our health, and how we show up as parents and business owners.
Take care of the most precious asset in your business (12:27 – 13:14)
It’s no coincidence that the most successful online entrepreneurs are very healthy people. Because we are our personal brands, we are our most expensive assets. Anytime you’re too tired or stressed to be productive, you are losing money in your business.
One of the biggest mistakes we make in life and business is not prioritizing our own self-care or having so much work on our plates that it leads to misery. There is nothing wrong with us asking for and getting help, and setting boundaries so we’re healthier and happier. The best thing our kids can see is us at our very best. If we’re miserable and frustrated, they will model themselves after that. If we want to instill the right habits into our kids, we have to prioritize our own self-care and build businesses that don’t burn us out.
