CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE ENTREPRENEURIAL ROLLER COASTER FOR A HOT MINUTE?
We hear this term used all the time to describe the highs and lows a person in the entrepreneurial world experiences when owning their own business.
Sometimes, those people feel over-the-moon because of a huge launch they’re right in the middle of or a super profitable product they sold out of. #kudostoyou
Other times, business owners feel lower than low – their launch was a flop, they lost multiple clients for different reasons, or things just weren’t going right in any which way. #beentheredonethat
Let me let you in on a little secret – being a business owner shouldn’t only allow you to feel HIGH when you’re in the middle of a big launch and you definitely shouldn’t feel super duper low every single time something goes a little awry. Because the truth is, owning your own business will have its downfalls. Life will not go as you had planned or hoped 100% of the time.
Learning how to rope in those moments when the roller coaster feels a bit off the tracks can make the difference between making it or completely breaking it in the business world.
I’ve been right where you are – struggling to find the balance between my life and business so that I wasn’t living the entrepreneurial roller coaster all the freaking time. Hello. No one has time for that. What we really want is to experience more good times than bad, right? So why settle for the roller coaster ride when you absolutely can experience the highs more than lows?
“owning your own business will have its downfalls. Life will not go as you had planned or hoped 100% of the time.”
THERE ARE 2 THINGS THAT I KNOW CAN HELP YOU GET OFF THE ENTREPRENEURIAL ROLLER COASTER AND START LIVING YOUR BEST LIFE – BOTH PERSONALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY.
If I had a nickel for every time someone tried to cross my boundary lines, I’d be a millionaire by now.
Apparently, boundaries are these elusive ideas that everyone talks about but never really follow. And word to the wise, that is a super unhealthy way to live your life. You cannot live a balanced life if you have constant boundary lines crossed.
In business, creating solid boundaries between your life and business + you and your clients will make for a much smoother ride. I promise.
Of course, when you first start a business, your boundary lines are a little bit blurry (or non-existent if we’re being honest here). And that was me, too. I didn’t start my business with clear boundaries because I didn’t want to upset anyone. All I really wanted to do was keep everyone happy, which meant sacrificing on the boundary side of things.
Wrong move, Jenna. Wrong move.
But when I finally learned what boundaries actually were and how they truly helped a person thrive in business, it was GAME. FREAKING. ON.
And that’s exactly the kind of thing we’re going to dive into even deeper at B3- Business, Breakthroughs, Boundaries. I’m serious when I say that boundaries can make or break your business (and sanity and relationships and all. the. things.)
Breakthroughs might seem like an oxymoron when we talk about getting off the entrepreneurial roller coaster by experiencing breakthroughs. You might hear the word breakthrough and think SUPER HIGH MOMENT, but that’s not entirely true. Let me explain what I mean.
In business, there are business owners who are constantly (and forever) waiting for a big breakthrough to happen TO them. They sit and wait for opportunities to fall into their laps or epiphanies to strike them like a lightning bolt.
And while I wish this was actually how breakthroughs occurred, it’s not. Not even close.
Experiencing breakthroughs in your business requires some serious cajones. You need to feel the passion that’s deep inside of you and draw it out. Once you’ve drawn that passion out of your soul, you have to harness that passion into some serious guts in order to get things done.
Owning a business is not for the faint of heart, and neither are breakthroughs. Both of these things will require you to shed some tears, drink a lot of wine, and possibly listen to a little gangsta rap in your car more than usual. And all of that is 100% A.OK.
Because once you let that passion turn into power + sheer guts, your breakthroughs are seriously right around the corner.
IF YOU KNOW THAT BOUNDARIES AND BREAKTHROUGHS SERIOUSLY ARE NOT YOUR THING YET BUT OWNING YOUR OWN BUSINESS IS A NON-NEGOTIABLE IN YOUR LIFE, YOU’VE GOT ONE PLACE TO BE IN FEBRUARY – TAMPA, FLORIDA.
This live event is going to blow your FREAKING mind. And I’m not just saying that because it’s my event. I’m saying it because I know for a 100% fact that this event will change your entire life and business in just 2 days. Let go of the fear and take the leap into owning and running the business of your dreams.
I’ll save you a seat next to me at the table so we can listen (and oogle) to the amazingness that will come out of our speakers’ mouths together–>
“THERE ARE BUSINESS OWNERS WHO ARE CONSTANTLY (AND FOREVER) WAITING FOR A BIG BREAKTHROUGH TO HAPPEN TO THEM. THEY SIT AND WAIT FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO STRIKE THEM LIKE A LIGHTENING BOLT.”
