I feel that as trend enterprise house owners, we typically have a very exhausting time accepting the truth that we don’t know the way to do the whole lot in our companies.
We would like to have the ability to do all of it and have all of the solutions.
So once we don’t, we get down on ourselves. We set expectations for ourselves which might be unrealistic.
There’s no manner we are able to know the whole lot about the whole lot however for no matter cause, we anticipate ourselves to.
Perhaps you anticipate your self to know the way to discover materials, get samples made, undergo the manufacturing course of, create a web site, discover an viewers, and make gross sales all inside a yr’s time and with minimal assist from others.
When you consider that, does it sound cheap?
These are all large, concerned endeavors that require training, expertise, trial and error, and time.
With out these issues, errors shall be made, questions shall be posed.
And that’s completely superb.
However anticipating your self to not make these errors or have these questions, is foolish.
But, I see it usually.
I see rising model house owners attempt to do all of it however in the end changing into dissatisfied in themselves after they can’t fairly pull it off.
I say all of this realizing that I too fall into this lure occasionally.
Take our StartUp FASHION members and LevelUp FASHION college students, for instance. I actually get pleasure from interacting with our members and college students. I like to study what they’re engaged on, get to know them, and share recommendation and perception. I like to assist in any manner I can.
However it’s once I can’t assist, or no less than I can’t “remedy” the whole lot, that I begin to really feel unhealthy, like I’m failing them.
This is a matter as a result of I’m setting myself up for failure.
Nobody can remedy all issues.
I’m placing an excessive amount of strain on myself.
I have to see that what I can do is join our members and college students to different specialists or assets for serving to them, if for some cause I can’t. And this in itself is serving to! I’m, the truth is, utilizing my community and relationships to assist them with their issues.
Considered one of as of late I’ll study this lesson. 🙂
However don’t be like me.
Don’t put a lot strain on your self to know and do the whole lot.
And pay attention, I do get it. As an impartial enterprise proprietor, you might be carrying all of the hats (and sneakers, and jackets, and scarves).
You might be doing all of it and when one thing comes your manner that you simply don’t know the way to do, it’s straightforward to get down on your self.
The truth is that typically you need assistance and there’s nothing improper with that.
You don’t have to know the way to do the whole lot. Cease placing a lot strain on your self and be OK with asking for assist.
It will likely be a troublesome shift, I know. However you bought this!… Besides whenever you don’t. And that’s OK too.
A lot of love and encouragement,
