Be your own boss, they said. Start your own business, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.
Well, that last part is true, even with all the stressors of running a business.
I’ve been feeling overwhelmed lately. VERY overwhelmed. I am a one woman operation, which gets incredibly draining from time to time (may have had a mini meltdown recently).
I've had this business of mine for close to 5 years now, and I can truly say I love my career and what I do. I have been thinking a lot lately about what I'd like my business to look like and what what I see for the future. I have so many ideas and visions. I had a lot more planned for this year, new products, a subscription box, branding updates, and so much more.
I realize I am doing too much. I have too many products, too many options, and it’s turned into a nightmare to keep it all in stock. I want to keep the joy with my business. I will be slowly consolidating, and you’ll start to see some products say their farewells. Truth to be told, I can’t do everything, and I don’t need to.
I’m showing myself some grace and learning to say ‘no.’ I’m accepting help from friends because I don’t have to do this all alone.
Just as I am, I hope you’re learning to be kind to yourself as well.
