Are You Experiencing Entrepreneurial Burnout?

​Too many women business owners are coping with ​entrepreneurial burnout in pursuit of ​growing ​a successful business.   Sometimes referred to as entrepreneurial power failure. 

Entrepreneurial burnout comes on slowly

​Entrepreneurial burnout comes on slowly as we're so ​focused on growing our business ​that we let ​other important parts of our life go, such as: 

  • ​Focusing on daily care
  • ​​​Spending time doing other things we enjoy
  • ​Spending time with family & friends
  • check
    ​Eating healthy food
  • check
    ​Exercising regularly

We often REASON that our current ​investment of time and energy in only temporary. 


​​It will all be worth it once you have the ball rolling and get the business under control.  ​

​The evolution to burnout comes on slowly and dangerously.

​No doubt you've read or heard the fable of the boiling frog.  

​​The premise is that if a frog is put suddenly into boiling water, it will jump out, but if the frog is put in tepid water which is then brought to a boil slowly, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death.

The story is often used as a metaphor for the inability or unwillingness of people to react to or be aware of threats that arise gradually.

Different Ways Entrepreneurial Burnout shows up:

  • ​Running on Empty
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Feeling Overwhelmed
  • ​Begin losing passion for your business
  • Procrastination
  • Becoming Forgetful
  • Fatigue
  • ​Doubting your level of competence

Is this you?  

Are you experiencing entrepreneurial burnout?

​If so, you'll want to ​immediately reset ​your business priorities.

There are many successful businesswomen who have a happy family life.

There are many successful businesswomen who share their time and money with others.

A balanced life. A fulfilling life. A compassionate life.

​Are you ​trying to manage everything in your business on your own?  

Maybe you've hired a virtual support team to execute tasks.  

But, still​, you're spending ​precious time trying to figure out what to delegate​, ​answering ​questions, and creating solutions for your team to move forward. ​

​You're often the bottleneck keeping projects from moving forward. 

​Daily you find yourself buried in ​the day-to-day operations, team, projects, and marketing implementation of your business which can and should be delegated. 

​There's no time or energy left most days to ​actually focus on higher level tasks that will actually grow the business revenue and reach. ​

​If you're like most you're feeling paralyzed and wondering is this what the entrepreneurial life is like.

Working ​all the time, ​feeling disconnected from the freedom you thought would be yours when you started your own business.

You don't have to work so darn hard ​to build ​a successful business​ alone!

Get the support you need ​scale, grow and gain some​ balance between work and play.
