Did you know that Multitasking reduces productivity and increases stress? The brain has to constantly stop and start to process multiple tasks at once. Be intentional in reducing distractions and focusing on a single task at a time.
As an entrepreneur, you are going to be wearing more hats than you can imagine. And you will need to be able to switch them at a moments notice.
What can you do to manage stress, remain calm, cool and sane?!
Make the time. With all the tasks you will be juggling you will need to set aside time to take breaks and reset. Getting away allows you to get out of the weeds and gain some perspective.
Find Your Tribe:
Even though you might be alone in running your business, you don’t have to remain in total solitude. Keep in touch with your inner circle and network. Networking can be invaluable and expose you to more opportunities, support, accountability, and motivation. Make a conscious effort to network in your industry. Attend an event or commit to a group that promotes accountability and goal check-ins.
Roll with the punches:
Resilience! Business is all about the ups and downs, refusing to let failure get you down. You will need to find motivation to stay the course and believe in yourself.
Take care of yourself:
We all know that solopreneur’s often work long hours and fall victim to unhealthy habits for the sake of reaching business goals. It is to burn the midnight oil every once and awhile, a solopreneur’s main goal should be self-preservation. If something happens to you, your business will suffer.
Commit to a schedule:
You may have an extremely flexible schedule, but you should always make the most of your time in ways that count. This means prioritizing tasks and saying no to things that might not help you reach your business goals. Give yourself disciplined yet realistic office hours.
