No matter how long you have been in business for there comes a point where you might have a wobble. Chelle, MNC's social media manager has been freelancing since 2009 and still gets them....here she talks about what helps her.
You have that wobble. Then you start to ask yourself the following things
Did I make the right decision? Am I neglecting my family? Where do I go next? Should I give it all up for a 'normal' job?
I have to admit that I have had a serious amount of wobbling. The more successful my business becomes I wonder how I even got here in the first place. It's pretty much flying by the seat of my pants. You?
But then I think about how I can stop having these wobbles and you know what the most guarenteed why to stop them? It's to share and to talk about them and to use the wobbles as a task list for where you want to be and where you want to go next.
Use them as a positive.
I totally made the right decision to run my own business because...... I may not have the perfect work/life balance but I want it and this is how I will make it happen... I want this ....... from my business life and this .......from my family life. A 'normal' job? What is that? Make a list for and against it - A normal job would mean ...... for my family.
Of course having a wobble is completely natural but what is important is how you take them and change them.
How do you turn your wobbles into something positive?
