3 strategies to ease stress and help you sleep at night!
We get it. You’re worried and panicked. “My product’s not ready for launch”, “I’m falling behind in my commitments”, “Will I have or make enough money?” You’re on edge, there are too many options or ideas to pursue, so many decisions to make … all classic symptoms of entrepreneurial anxiety. How can you ever get it under control?
Don’t get in over your head. Most people want the full-meal-deal when it comes to launching a business venture, but it’s okay to scale or phase your requirements based on your capacity to get the work done or your affordability. Not everything has to be done or ‘out there’ at once.
Choose your business partners carefully. Most of us have learned the hard way that we can’t do it all ourselves. When you need to work with someone, be sure the services or skills they are offering or the results they are promising have a clear line of sight to your business objectives.
Have a timeline. Take the time to plan out all the steps or activities that need to occur in your business and when they need to happen. This is a great way to understand how much work is involved, when it needs to be down, where you need to subcontract so you can minimize some of the surprises along the way. Try using an online system like TeamworkPM to keep track of everything.
Try these tips so when your head hits the pillow at night – it stays there.
