How To Quit Quitting On Your Business

This week I have repeated the same thing to several clients. "The world is waiting on your gifts."


Many of my clients and most female professionals are challenged with the relentless demands of family, perfectionism, and the invisible workload of women. This can make nurturing a thriving business feel like a distant dream. The urge to "quiet quit" on your own dreams can creep in, leaving you feeling frustrated and unfulfilled.


If you're nodding your head in agreement, you're not alone. 

Let's be honest, juggling motherhood, soccer practice, school schedules, aging parents, and a demanding business is a pressure cooker. 


It's no wonder the urge to just "check out" sometimes becomes overwhelming. Here are some common culprits:


  • Family Needs:  Our families deserve our love and attention. The guilt of prioritizing work can be a powerful demotivator.

  • Perfectionism:  The fear of not being good enough can lead to overthinking and procrastination.

  • Invisible Workload:  Women often shoulder a disproportionate share of household tasks and emotional labor, leaving them depleted.

  • Time Management Challenges:  Effectively managing a business alongside personal commitments can feel like an impossible feat.



How To Avoid The "Quiet Quit"

Remember why you started this journey.  Revisit your vision board, business plan, or that initial spark that ignited your business dreams. Here are some practical tips to get you re-motivated:

  • Schedule Time for Inspiration: Block out time for activities that refuel your creativity and enthusiasm. Listen to a motivational podcast, read industry publications, or connect with inspiring entrepreneurs.

  • Practice Gratitude: Reflect on the wins, big and small, you've already achieved. Gratitude fosters a positive mindset and reminds you of your capabilities.

  • Visualize Success: Visualization is a powerful tool for programming your mind for success. Imagine yourself reaching your goals. See yourself thriving, making a difference, and impacting your clients.  


How To Prioritize and Create Space for Your Business

We can't magically create more hours in the day, but we can be smarter about how we use our time.  Here's how to prioritize your business effectively:


  • Embrace the Power of "No": Learn to politely decline requests that drain your time and energy.  Focus on activities that move your business forward, especially income-generating activities.

  • Delegate and Outsource: Don't be a hero. Delegate repetitive tasks, hire freelancers, get an intern, pay a housekeeper, and leverage technology to free up your time.

  • Batch Similar Tasks: Group similar activities together to stay focused and improve efficiency. I like to write social media posts, add events to my website, client calls, and even personal errands. This has really helped me save time and boost productivity.

  • Embrace Time Blocking: Treat your business like a paying client. Block out dedicated hours in your calendar for focused work. Blocking time has been very important for my personal success and truly helped me recover from exhaustion. Besides the benefit of focused business attention, time blocking also acts as a buffer for family situations.


Activate the Power of Community

A community of like-minded colleagues is a game-changer. Surround yourself with those who understand your struggles and can offer encouragement, accountability, and shared wisdom. If you're craving community, check out my Success Circle for Women. I can't think of a better way to begin the week. We meet virtually on Mondays at 11 AM ET, 10 AM CT, 9 AM MT, 8 AM PT, and 4 PM London.


Remember, "The World is Waiting for Your Gifts"

Don't let the daily grind extinguish your dreams. You are a talented, resourceful, and capable woman with a purpose and I believe in you. 💜
