I’m always interested in how our brains manage to cope with the multitude of stressors affecting us. We’re asking our gray matter to deal with a lot right now.
Some of it is common to all of us, like the virus. Some of it is related to politics, like the unrest in the US. Some of it is personal–for each of us it’s different, but we’ve all got some additional weight to carry and some of that is worse because of the pandemic
And then there’s making a living. For practitioners, a good deal of that stress has to do with the fact that you started out wanting to do the work you love with people who need it, and you ended up being accidentally self-employed.
And then you try to build a business, but most of the help you can find on the Internet comes from people who don’t share your mindset–they are intentionally self-employed and what they suggest comes from a completely different mindset than yours. Trying to follow their advice can lead to overwhelm, confusion, and general brain fog.
But that’s not all—in this 12-minute video, I explain more about what happens to your brain when you’re trying to build a business you didn’t intend to have… and how to build one that feels like you’ll be proud to call it your own.
You’ve spent a lot of time learning to do the work that makes you feel like yourself… don’t waste your energy trying to build a business that feels like someone else! Get the details on Love Your Business here.
