When it comes to investing in their businesses (and themselves) one of the mistakes I consistently see moms in business making is holding out until the last minute. Until things are going downhill and there doesn’t seem to be any other option.
This is like waiting to repair potholes in a road until they’ve gotten so massive that they cause a flat tire or broken axle one day. It takes a whole lot more time, effort and money to handle that road full of potholes than simply filling one at a time as you go along.
Yet time and time again I see smart, driven business women delay delay delay until they’re to the point of quitting their business entirely or taking a step back to get a job on the side because it’s simply not working.
Instead, investing in that business on a regular basis should be part of any standard business plan and strategy. Because a little help from the right people early on can go a long way.
Think of an accountant, tools to support automation, an assistant, or even a coach Because when you are getting the right support in a timely manner, some of the awesome results will be
More time and money
Increased mental space to enjoy your business
Less struggle, more flow
So next time you find yourself struggling with an aspect of your business where you could get support, STOP IT! Take a moment to really reflect on how much it’s costing you, and what the potential return on investment could be!
