Did you find the life of a “solopreneur” as fulfilling and profitable as you hoped it would be?
Or at least easy-going and a piece of cake? Because there are tons of online coaches and business owners who make it seem like running a business is a walk in the park.
But that isn’t always true!
When running a business (even a small-scale operation) you’re bound to run into many hiccups and problems along the way.
And despite the illusion of how fast one can earn those six (or seven) figures; you’ll soon find out that it is a tough hustle!
A tough, but rewarding hustle if you put your heart and sweat into it!
By putting yourself out there, sending sales emails, reaching out to fellow entrepreneurs through social media you’re stepping one foot forward towards the direction of your dreams.
And that is something to be proud of!
Knowing your audience, preparing for any problems that can occur, connecting with them timely and efficiently is all part of the process.
As well as keeping yourself organized, tasks prioritized, executing the strategy on time and wearing multiple hats when the issue at hand demands it.
All these points that I have mentioned aren’t anything new or rocket science! Your own experience thus far can account for how overwhelming it all can be!
But that doesn’t mean it should be hard.
Your business can become the real-life version of your dream.
You can hit that six-figure mark and be off to chase the next!
You can control and better manage all your fears and stress associated with the day to day running of your business. But most importantly, you can enjoy the thrill and excitement of what it is like to be a business owner!
We all have just got to accept all the challenges that come along way and not back down from facing it head-on!
So, what is the missing piece to the puzzle?
Is it becoming both the boss and employee? And chipping in whenever an extra set of hands are required?
To gain traction when you’re starting out demands you to be both the CEO and Manager at the same time.
Being both, the captain of the ship, as well as the cabin crew keeping it afloat.
And I know what you’re thinking, “It is easier said than done”, but if you can find the balance then switching between working in your business and on your business takes only a second.
It is doable, I can guarantee it is.
The reason why some business owners struggle with it is because they spend more time on one extreme rather than finding the middle ground.
For example, you may be too engrossed with working on your website, updating its copy and tweaking it to look more presentable. So much so, that you end up not putting yourself out there by meeting up with fellow business owners or reaching out to new clients.
It is so easy to get sucked in by one aspect of your business that you may tend to overlook the remaining parts that are equally demanding and important.
However, you are not alone and the best way to find balance between both roles is to start taking notice.
Notice what you spend most of your time working on and what you give little to no attention.
Striking the right balance won’t come to you straight away, especially if you’re new but keep working at it and eventually you’ll be in charge in no time.
