Between overflowing inboxes, a never-ending list of ideas and a new juicy business course dropping every day, there is no shortage of things solopreneurs can spend their time doing.
We LOVE being busy. Having no time for anything but chasing our goals is almost seductive. Hustling our way through the day and night with nothing but coffee in our systems can make us feel like a young Steve Jobs, on the brink of massive success.
But constantly being busy is NOT healthy. In fact, it’s downright toxic.
Online business culture feeds us the idea that you have be ready to sacrifice everything for your business if you want to achieve any kind of dramatic success. And that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
80+ hour work weeks don’t translate to a bigger paycheck. All that dedication brings is burnout.
As solo business owners, we need to learn how to disconnect our time from our income.
You will be successful in business because you have expert knowledge and a unique perspective to share. That – not endless hours on the computer – is what’s worth paying for.
So – how do we disconnect our time from our income so we can make more money and have a healthier work-life balance? Here are a few ways I’ve found that work:
- Raising your rates
- Putting together value-based Signature Packages
- Hiring a small team (even just one person) to help better serve your clients
Start with just one of these action items and see how far it can take you. It’s time to stop hustling, start living, and (most importantly) get some sleep.
