3 Things We Learned From This Episode
Follow your intuition (11:50- 13:41)
Your intuition is a powerful tool, and you should pay attention to any negative feelings you may have. When you ignore your gut feeling, bad things tend to happen. Listen to yourself, and don’t be afraid to let your intuition guide you.
You don’t have to do everything (17:39- 18:43)
When you live out of alignment with your goals, dreams and ambitions, you are going to crash. Understand that you don’t have to give everyone what they need, all the time. Give what you can, but don’t allow it to cause you fatigue.
Allow yourself to step back if it’s the best decision (19:22- 21:28)
It can be hard to step back from your business- especially if you’ve invested a lot into it. Allow yourself to overcome your guilt at not using a degree, a business or anything else you’ve spent a long time to attain. If you know you want to step back, give yourself that opportunity.
A lot of moms feel guilty about starting businesses. However, many also agonize over the decision to step back, when necessary. Remember that despite all the demands you may feel at work and at home, you do need to prioritize your intuition and mental health. Whichever route you decide to take, make sure you’re choosing the path you want to.
