Entrepreneurship can be a lonely and stressful journey. It's important to avoid burnout by learning from those who've been on the path just ahead of you. Tap into your intuition and let it guide you to success.
I noticed some of the entrepreneurial women I adore and look up to were sharing some of the same challenges. All followed the same patterns and hit a point of burnout.
While none of these women are mamas yet, they have inspiring success stories and a willingness to be vulnerable and share openly. There's so much to learn from them!
Sadly, this came with a loss of identity, being subsumed into their businesses and following the leaders and coaches with a blueprint to follow—and by being hyper-focused by stats, followers, and views.
They had no time to reflect on what makes them happy and what motivated them to create their businesses. They had the sense that success was solely about building millions and their lives were missing the personal aspects of fulfillment and joy in life that aren't related to income.
They all shared similar ways of recovering. A lot of what they shared that helped had to do with being "true to themselves," listening to their inner voice, intuition, and what their bodies were telling them. Basically being guided by internal cues vs. focusing solely on external forces and voices.
This episode is all about my observations following Sunny Lenarduzzi, Vanessa Lau, and Cathrin Manning. Each has their own story, and if you're not familiar, all have YouTube channels, so I'm linking some key burnout and lessons learned videos they shared.
