Top 7 Lessons I Learned Since Starting My Business

Hi there, in this episode, I’ll share the top 7 lessons I learned. Some lessons may be unexpected, some may surprise you and some may even allow you a sigh of relief. You’re not alone in this as we all go through similar experiences in entrepreneurship.

1. Taking action

This is the most important thing. The times that I have taken action over and over again are the times where I have seen the biggest improvements in my business.

2. Be protective of your energy

As an introvert, I know that I need to recharge my battery to go back to my creative mind. I'm now ruthless about how I spend my time. If I have back to back calls today, I won't schedule back to back calls tomorrow.

3. Why you don’t need to explain yourself to the right people

The right people will stand by you. They will challenge you for sure. It’s not about having a whole bunch of people surround you. It’s about having the right people who know your intentions, your heart, what type of person you are and your area - how genius you are at the thing that you do.

4.You can do anything but it doesn't mean that you have to do anything or everything

If I give myself enough space and time to do the things that I need to do, and I really think about what I need in my business. Whether or not that's me or somebody else in my business that needs to do it, anything is possible. Anything can be done.

5. Progress not perfection

I'm a recovering perfectionist. I learnt that I can just look for incremental improvements and it doesn't need to be perfect in order to send it out the gate.

6. If it's not a hell yes than it's a hell no

Saying yes left me burned out and left me exhausted and made me hate every part of my business. It doesn't matter if a client looks perfect on paper, if it's not working out, it is okay to let drop them as a client.

7. Slow down to speed up

It’s better to slow down to speed up because we don't want to have to spend a lot of time having to duplicate efforts and to redo things over and over again. We do this to get all of the pieces together and ensure that we are doing things, as much as possible, with excellence and without waiting for perfection.
