One of the most common things I hear when my fellow female entrepreneurs hear that I'm a Life Coach is "I would love to have life coaching but making my business succeed is my first priority. Once that's going then I'll have time to take your course". And that makes TOTAL sense - if you're a man.
Let me go on record - I have nothing against men. I love them AND acknowledge that most men think differently than women (thank goodness!). For the most part they act first and think second and they have very defined areas of their life. Their Work Life is totally separate from their Spirituality and their Family. There's a clarity and crispness to what they do in a given moment. But women are messier. The lines that define the areas of our life aren't clear cut. We are never not a mom. We will hop in and out of what life coaches define as the 8 facets of living faster than we can even keep track. And I mean let's face it - when was the last time you saw a man cry when the phone lines go down during a webinar? We bring ourselves into EVERYTHING WE DO.
So that brings me to the idea that we are unable to fix only ONE facet of our lives while ignoring the rest. We are thoroughly interconnected and tangled up inside. My courses at Living ImPerfect aren't designed to be business courses and my courses at Marketing ImPerfect aren't designed to talk about only business and that's on purpose. If any part of us gets better then all parts of us must follow. If we're learning to take control of our paths and take ACTION then guess what? Your business will start succeeding!
So if you want to get your business to the next level, get your life in order. Start learning to be clear and calm and focused. It's not just about having a better business plan or spending more money on advertising, it's about learning to succeed as a person and getting the drive and moxy you'll be needing to set out of your comfort zone to start kicking butt!
