I’ve often been told that I have a knack for understanding mompreneurs. Really and truly, as a fellow mompreneur/solopreneur, I’ve been where you are when it comes to the balance of raising kids while building a business, and I understand the mental and emotional conflicts you may be experiencing. You want to know how to achieve your business goals, and I’m here to give you that extra motivational push.
Oftentimes moms in business may have mental conflicts over how to achieve our business goals. I know it can be difficult to see your path before you when it’s muddled with questions like:
How do I get from Point A to Point B?
How do I take the next step?
What is my next step?
How do I get through all the tech jargon to _____ set up my blog/hire someone to create my ebook graphic/create my first digital course?
Although I won’t be digging into details for each of these questions on this post, I can at least address the biggest concern I think- which is how do we do it? How can we achieve our goals when we have so much on our plates? How can we move forward when there is so much in the day in our way?
I’ve got a video just for you! Here we go…
Achieve your business goals by not procrastinating
Oh…this is a hard one. I’m still battling this, but daily I’m learning how freeing it is to take a giant bite out of a project I’ve been sitting on for years! (That’s exactly what I did when I decided to quit moping around about not having written my book. I finally went and did it!)
When you stop procrastinating you give yourself room to accomplish things in your life. Have you been wanting to grow your business by creating more content? Blogging? Podcasting? Creating digital products? Growing your online network?
Don’t wait on it any longer. You can achieve your business goals by making plans to change the way you do things. Find one goal and get busy with making it happen! (I’ll be your cheerleader. Come ON- you can do it!)
Get past your imperfections and just do it!
Things will never be perfect. Remember that. If you demand perfection you’ll never get to the point of completion of your project. You want to get past the perpetual cycle of attempting to make everything be and look perfect, and just keep pushing forward.
I have this little problem with website design: I get bored easily with my templates! I don’t know if you’ve noticed…but if you’ve been around any of my web projects long enough, you’ve definitely noticed! I’ve changed my theme since last year at least 3 times already. Being the geek that I am, I love tweaking CSS code, and I enjoy fooling around with new Studiopress templates or switching out from Divi to Elementor- which means that my boredom has found a playmate: switching themes. Marry that with the fact that I’m a bit of a perfectionist- and Houston, we have a problem.
I’m learning to find a web template, and just say “It’s okay, Demetria, its fine! Totally fine!” and stick with it.
I’m also learning that perfectionism when it comes to creating my courses, is what has held me back over the years. I have so many courses in my Google Drive, but I’ve been afraid to let them out of the bag. I’m afraid of imperfections. I’m afraid it won’t be just right. Thankfully, I’ve been able to get past this perfectionism and release one of my most recent courses: Create Your Digital Products. I have many more up my sleeve to release, but oftentimes it is truly perfectionism that gets in the way.
What am I doing about it? I’m sharing this tidbit of personal info with you, my reader and viewer. I want you to know that I understand, and I’ve been there (heck, I am there!) and that just like you, I’m learning to look past imperfections in order to move forward and really accomplish my goals. I want to encourage you also by showing you how you can accomplish your business goals also.
Keep it moving!
The only way to truly achieve your business goals is to keep moving forward. You’ve got to keep it moving, my friend. Forget perfectionism and definitely forget procrastination!
Take out your task list and every single day focus on those tasks and complete them.
If you’re a visual person, try a vision board. This will help you to keep moving as you visualize where you eventually want to be in your business.
The key here is: to keep it moving. Don’t look back. Don’t get stuck in the present or the past. But keep moving forward and reaching for your goals!
So there you have it- my advice on how to achieve your business goals as solopreneurs! I hope this post motivates you. Leave me a comment below and let me know your thoughts.
