Your Biggest Investment? You!

When you start a business, you spend most of your time attending to its growth. As an entrepreneur you don’t get to turn your business off. It’s going 24/7. That can be very daunting and stressful. So don’t forget to pay attention to your biggest investment: YOURSELF!33309549_S

Your business can’t succeed without you. You are the brains, the brawn and the passion that keeps your business going. If you aren’t up to the task, your business will suffer. So what can do you to protect your most important investment?

Keep healthy. Keeping your body healthy is important. You don’t have time for sick days, and you can’t afford expensive health care costs. So keep active and eat healthy. Set time aside each day for exercise. Schedule meal breaks so that you have the time to prepare a healthy meal and don’t succumb to fast food temptations.

Make your relationships a priority. Running your own business drastically changes your working hours. Rather than having a steady, predictable schedule, you have one that might be described as, well, insane. This can have a negative effect on your relationships. As you set aside time to exercise, go ahead and set aside time for the most important people in your life. Make it a priority to have unplugged times where you can focus on your relationships without worrying about work.

Groom your investor. You always want to keep your biggest investor happy. So your job is to keep yourself happy. Whatever it is that makes you smile, don’t let it fall by the wayside. Even if you have to cut back on favorite activities, still make it a point to do them. A little self love will go a long way toward protecting your business.

Remember that no one knows how much work and effort it takes to run your business like you do. So treat yourself like the most important investment in your company. When you do you’ll find that your business is ready to succeed!

The Bad Day Cure

The Bad Day CureEver had one of those days where it seems like the whole world is conspiring against you? One of those “your boss wasn’t pleased with something again, the dog made a mess on the carpet, you were stuck in traffic, and then you burned dinner” kind of days. They happen to all of us every once in a while. What lifts you up on those low days – maybe a glass of wine, an invigorating run, a Netflix binge at home or a reminder that someone cares for you?

While the first three options are great, nothing is as cheering as a reminder that you are loved and appreciated. Kindness. It’s a small act that can have enormous benefits. Simple reminders of love can lift us up for longer than the endorphins from exercise or the thrill of a good binge watch. That’s why we love the idea of following through on a prompting to reach out and show love – because a simple, thoughtful gesture can do great things.

So the next time you have a bad day, step outside of yourself. Do something kind for someone else, like sending a quick card or gift to show your love. A few words of encouragement, a rich chocolate brownie, an inspirational book, a thoughtful token: Such a gesture will send cheer to someone else and cheer you up as well. Research has shown that not only does an act of kindness reduce stress for the recipient, but it also reduces stress for the giver. So if you want to cure your bad day, do something nice for someone else.
