You started your business so that you could be your own boss, dictate your schedule, and do more of what you enjoy. But somewhere along the way, your business has become a chore.
Maybe it’s sales and self-promotion…scary!😲
Maybe it’s admin and expenses tracking – boring!😵
Maybe it’s posting to social media – exhausting!🥱
The problem is, when you see your biz or parts of it, as a chore, then your energy is sapped up just trying to get through the things you hate doing.Your energy wanes and this shows up in the way you conduct your biz, how many customers you reach out to, how much product development you get through, etc.
When your dream biz starts to feel more like a job, you can start to feel trapped, and disappointed.
Well, it’s about what you are doing day to day.
Look at your current schedule or diary (however you plan your days and track your progress).

I use this technique a lot in life. Just recently, my biz coach asked me to do this. And it’s been really surprising and exciting, how much of it has come to pass already.
For example, I scheduled two weekly meetings that didn’t exist before – a VA catch up, and biz coach catch up. Guess what is now in my real schedule?
You got it – since spending the time to take another look at what I would really LIKE to be doing, I’ve naturally gone out and made it happen.
It’s just what happens when you channel your focus.
So, your ideal week. If you feel like having a crack at this, then just add an extra week to your calendar/diary/schedule. Whether it’s on paper or electronic, just however you normally plan your days.
Then create your ideal week schedule, fill it with everything you actually WANT to be doing.
Including not just biz stuff, but also things like:
It’s pretty simple, but it can highlight and remind you of the gaps between your desired reality and your current reality.
The next steps – well I have two but one is already actually DONE, because just completing the act of putting the pen to paper, to picture your ideal week, has set the wheels in motion.
Your fabulous brain is already looking for ways to make it a reality.
Revisit it. Update it. Daydream about it. It all helps this forward motion without you having to do much at all.
Then from these insights, just turn these statements on their head into simple, achievable actions:
So then, what does your ideal week look like, and what actions can you take TODAY to bring it closer to being a reality?
When you’re waking up excited about what lays ahead of you each day, your renewed energy really comes across in the way you show up in your business.
