One of the first things I do when clients are working with me is to have them go through all of their current responsibilities. Obviously, working, domestic stuff - if they’ve got kids, interests they have and finding out a way to fit their life together and incorporate 5 hours a week that is required actually for the business.
She was saying, she finds it hard really to outsource anything because she is the breadwinner of her family - her husband actually does the cooking and picking up the kids from school so she can work all the time.
The issue is, we don’t often see within ourselves what we are actually capable of. We don’t actually notice or see the skills that we have because we don’t believe in ourselves. This is the main thing that will hold you back from success. It’s the one thing that will stop you.
It’s not ever about money. It’s not ever about time. It’s not ever about knowledge or resources or anything else. Not having a team or not having childcare or this or that or any other million reasons we can find to come up with why we can’t start a business.
I struggled so much to actually work on my business alongside my job. I was working about 60 hours a week including my commute, which meant I had roughly 1-2 hours a day to dedicate to my business if I wanted to, along with potentially half a day on Saturday because I needed Sunday to rest.
But even though I had 10-15 hours per week free, I‘d come from work totally drained. I just wanted to curl up and watch TV at the end of the day and not work on my business. You know how that feels, right?
