I’ve often been told that I have a knack for understanding mompreneurs. Really and truly, I’ve been where you are when it comes to the balance of raising kids with building a business, and I understand the mental and emotional conflicts you may be experiencing.
Oftentimes as a mom in business you may have mental conflicts over how to achieve your business goals. I know it can be difficult to see your path before you when it’s all muddled with questions like:
How do I get from Point A to Point B?
How do I take the next step?
What is my next step?
How do I get through all the tech jargon to _____ (“set up my blog, hire someone to create my ebook graphic, create my first digital course”, you fill in the blank).
Although I won’t be digging into details for each of these questions on this post, I can at least address the biggest concern I think- which is how do we do it? How can we achieve our goals when we have so much on our plates? How can we move forward when there is so much in the day in our way?
I’ve got a video just for you! Here we go…
How to Achieve your Business Goals
Oh…this is a hard one. I’m still battling this, but I tell ya, I’m learning how freeing it is to take a giant bite out of a project I’ve been sitting on for years! (That’s exactly what I did when I decided to quite moping around about not having written my book. I finally went and did it!)
When you stop procrastinating you give yourself room to accomplish things in your life. Have you been wanting to grow your business through creating more content? Blogging? Podcasting? Creating digital products? Growing your online network?
Don’t wait on it any longer. Make plans to make a change. Find one goal and get busy with making it happen! (I’ll be your cheerleader. Come ON- you can do it!)
Get past your imperfections and just do it!
Things will never be perfect. If you demand perfection you’ll never get to the point of completion of your project. You want to get past the perpetual cycle of attempting to make everything be and look perfect, and just keep pushing forward.
I have this little problem with website design: I get bored easily of my templates! I don’t know if you’ve noticed…but if you’ve been around here at Mompreneurs In Heels long enough, you’ve definitely noticed! I’ve changed my theme since last year at least 3 times already. Being the geek that I am, I love tweaking CSS code, and I enjoy fooling around with new Studiopress templates- which means that my boredom has found a playmate: switching themes. And marry that with the fact that I’m a bit of a perfectionist- and Houston, we have a problem.
I’m learning to find a theme, say “It’s okay, Demetria, its fine! Totally fine!” and stick with it.
I’m also learning that perfectionism when it comes to creating my courses is what has held me back over the years. Oh- I have courses galore all over my hard drive, but I’ve been afraid to let them out of the bag. I’m afraid of imperfections. I’m afraid it won’t be just right.
What am I doing about it? I’m sharing this tidbit of personal info with you, my reader and viewer. I want you to know that I understand, and I’ve been there (heck, I am there!) and that just like you, I’m learning to look past imperfections in order to move forward and really accomplish my goals.
If you’re also a perfectionist, you can totally relate.
Keep it Moving!
The only way to truly achieve your business goals is to keep moving forward. You’ve got to keep it moving, girlfriend!
Forget perfectionism and definitely forget procrastination!
Take out your task list and every single day focus on those tasks and completing them.
If you’re a visual person, try a vision board (here are a few examples on Pinterest). This will help you to keep moving as you visualize where you eventually want to be in your business.
The key here is: keep it moving. Don’t look back. Don’t get stuck in the present or the past. But keep moving forward and reaching for your goals!
So there you have it- my advice on how to achieve your business goals as mompreneurs! I hope you this post motivates you!
