boutique business coaching goal setting growth the inventory genius podcast work life balance Sep 13, 2022

Today we're talking about what you should do when you feel like you want to quit.

We all sometimes get to this point in our lives, in our businesses, and in our day-to-day activities. Let's dig in and have a conversation about how to handle these feelings and how to move through them.

We Don't Have To Go To Extremes

Is there a happy medium between shutting everything down and meeting 100% of our goals? Perhaps your mind and body just need a break.

This is where compromise comes into play. There are ways we can build rest into our space as business owners by using tools that are in front of us. Be open to giving over tasks so that you can take some rest.

This will help you come back to the drawing board with a fresh perspective

Take A Season Off

Is there a way you can build rest in by not being available all the time? Or can you use employees, team members, vendors, suppliers to help you build some rest into your day? Can you create seasons of stepping back?

Before we know it, our business can become so complicated that it totally overwhelms us. Try to take away some of this overwhelm by creating seasonality.

Think About Why You Started In The First Place

There are ways to solve problems without throwing in the towel. 

Step back and take a look about why you decided to launch your business in the first place. How does this look based on where you are now? Is your dream being fulfilled or does something need to change?

Be open to pivoting before you quit.
