Running A Wellness Business and Avoiding Burnout (Soul Compass Podcast)

—  found in  Business  —

The reality of running a business is that it takes a lot of work. Now, is it worth it? 150%! I absolutely love what I do and love being able to work with my hubs, Walker, and our amazing team. However, it does get under my skin a bit when people assume that I just play on Instagram and make recipes all day. Sure, Instagram is part of my job and so is recipe development, but that's just a snippet of my life as a wellness entrepreneur and it took working nights, weekends and hustling my tushie off over 10 years to get to where I am today. 

I've also learned a lot over those 10 years about carving out time for rest, because as I came to discover, you can't keep going and going, no matter how much you love something, without burning out. You need to allow your body time to rest, relax and rejuvenate.

Since there are many incredibly talented and brilliant wellness entrepreneurs in the Joyous community, I wanted to share this episode I recorded with Vitina Blumenthal on her podcast, the Soul Compass Podcast. I hope that it will help many of you find your definition of "balance" so you can continue to do what you love to do every day without burning out!

In this episode we discuss:

  • Listening to medical advice, but also doing your own research
  • Don’t try to do everything yourself, find your “village” and create a team
  • Find those areas of your business where you can outsource to up level and grow
  • Year one of your business will look very different to year ten of another, comparison is not your friend
  • There is no luck in business. Be prepared, be engaged and be open to opportunity
  • Engage with your audience. Ask them questions about your business offerings, and see what changes you can implement
  • Don’t wait until your content is “perfect” before getting it out there
  • If money is tight, there’s still opportunities to outsource and grow your team
  • Find the medium that you comes easiest to you to share your story
