The 5 Different Personas of Every Business Owner
Let's be honest, being a business owner comes with a string of different emotions we experience day in and day out. I've had days where I've been on cloud nine, and then days where I have felt like giving up. No matter what, here are the 5 different personas every business owner can relate to...
1. The I'm-going-to-work-from-bed-because-I-can
If you've ever spent the whole day with your laptop in bed, you're not alone. When I first went full time, I thought, wow, this is really nice, I can work from bed, or the comfort of a coffee shop, or my desk! I love this! These days, I tend to have a bit more structure and don't work from my bed anymore, but I will admit that every now and then, there are those few days where it's just necessary, haha!
2. The It's-5pm-and-I-still-haven't-eaten-or-showered
Raise your hand if you've ever been here. I have! More times than I'd like to count, actually! We all have busy seasons, and times where we feel like we will never be able to get out of the huge pile of work that we have. Here's some things you can do to get out of that funk: outsource, and delegate! The less you can experience burn-out, the better off you'll be for yourself and for your clients!
3. The I-have-the-best-job-EVER-because-I-get-to-stay-at-home-with-my-pet
One of the best perks about working from home is staying home with our pets! Seriously! I think one of the things that motivates me so much is the fact that I get to stay home with Kai; I seriously love it. She's also so great at getting me to take breaks and play with her!
4. The I'm-going-to-quit-and-find-a-"real job"
We've all had those REALLY hard days as an entrepreneur...like the days that are so hard that we're ready to throw in the towel. Those days are tough, but I promise you that if you stick those days out, you will learn and grow from those experiences and in turn, become a better business owner for your clients.
5. The I-just-booked-my-dream-client-and-I'm-on-cloud-nine
No matter what, it's our amazing clients that keep us going and encourage us to do our best work. When we are so down because we're not booking anything, the moment we get that client that says, "yes!" in our inbox, it makes all the hard days worth it.
I want to encourage you today to keep moving forward in your business. You got this, you can do it, and what you're doing matters!
