When was the last time you took time off in your business? Years ago when I was earlier in my business, I never took time off because as an entrepreneur, it can be hard to schedule that time. If you’re anything like I was, you feel like if you’re not on call 24/7, if you don’t answer every single call or DM immediately, then you’re business is going to explode. 

If you’re feeling this way, you’re not alone, but it is a place of scarcity mindset. You got into business to better yourself, not to be working 24/7. 

That’s what happened to me early on. I remember as clear as day, I was on vacation with some friends in Mexico before I had kids, and we were on a hike and I got a call. My friends told me to let it go to voicemail, but I still answered the call, and it made me realize that I was actually training my clients to be able to reach me constantly with zero boundaries. 

It made me realize that there really are no emergencies in business. Someone else’s sense of urgency should not become our emergency, and this took me years to figure out, but once I put my boundaries in motion when I started to wait until office hours to respond, when I turned off notifications, while it was hard, it was really good for me. I’m able to be a more present mom, a more present wife, and a more present friend. But it also makes me a better coach because when I’m available to help, I give it my all. 

So, I challenge you to try this. Take one little baby step today that will move the needle and bring you more boundaries in your business, which in turn, will lead over to your life.
