You don’t show up consistently! Almost everyone knows this theoretically, and yet one of the most common mistakes I see other mom entrepreneurs making is being super inconsistent!
Inconsistent in marketing, message, structure, administration, and follow-up…just to name a few things.
And when you’re showing up inconsistently…do you think you’ll get great results in your business?
Of course not! I don’t think anyone really expects that with a little here and a little there they will reach their true potential in business.
Not only that but what happens when you aren’t consistent in your business is
You feel like you’re working hard all the time
The results you want aren’t there
It’s hard to find the motivation to keep going
Frustration is high, enjoyment low
You can feel lost or like a failure
Because being inconsistent in business is kind of like being an athlete who only shows up for training once and a while, or for a month and then disappears. Who sometimes tracks their progress, and food intake, or sporadically works with a trainer.
There’s no way you would expect that athlete to make it to the Olympics, let alone the regional championships!

This doesn’t mean you need to work 24/7 or show up on social media every single day of the week. It means finding a stride that works for you and your family. One that’s a stretch so you keep growing, but is one you’re able to maintain for a long period of time.

Finding a way to show up consistently in a sustainable way will lead to
Feeling more accomplished with the work you do
Spending less time and energy on things you do
Increased trust amongst your clients
More enjoyment and flow in work
So next time you find yourself embarking on a 30 day challenge on a platform you’re not really enthused about or feeling fed up with social media in general stop it!
Sit down and work make sure you have a plan of action that is realistically ambitious and creates clarity for you on what it looks like in your business to show up consistently!
Now I’m curious…on a scale of 1-10 (no 7s allowed) how consistently do you show up in your business?
