Don’t work everyday. In the beginning of launching a new business this is okay. However, if you do not take time to turn inward, take a breather, and focus on some self care, you will burn out. This can lead to something you were once very passionate about to be something you despise.

  1. You will have to show up all the time even when you don’t feel like it. When you have an online business it truly is your duty to be present, provide massive value and nurture your audience daily. I now know this, however, in the beginning I was not nearly as consistent.
  2. You will fail many times. New launches, new products, new marketing ideas-guess what? They are not all going to be successful and that’s okay. Learn from it and create something more powerful for the future.
  3. Hire a Life/Business Coach Immediately. I went too long in my business without having anyone to help me keep my head on straight and aid me with my mindset. Just because I’m a Coach myself does not mean I have everything sorted out.
  4. Don’t work everyday. I believe in the beginning of launching a new business this is okay. However, if you do not take time to turn inward, take a breather, and focus on some self care, you will burn out. This can lead to something you were once very passionate about to be something you despise.
