Did I build this business to wreck?
Yes, I did, unknowingly.
There is no denying my LOVE for Florence and the Machine. If I could only go to one concert for the rest of my life it would be to see Flo (as I like to call her!)
Okay, back to topic.
When I heard the lyrics to her latest song, I was gut punched because it summed up how I felt about my photography business. Did I build this business to wreck?
Yes, I did, unknowingly.
I wrecked my photography business when I let it consume me instead of pulling back before hitting rock bottom. Rock bottom happened on the floor of my walk-in closet. surrounded by clothing that no longer fit, along with being mentally, physically, and creatively spent. I had build my "ship" from the ground up, but ended up running it ashore when the captain (ME) went overboard.
As creatives/coaches we are selfless; giving so much of ourselves to our clients often without even realizing it. We give up holidays, weekends, evenings, miss family events, let our health and wellness fall to the wayside, and all for the love of our craft. That is, until we are shipwrecked.
I'd be shocked if I was the only one feeling this way, but I know I'm not. We try to put on a brave face, because who wants to hear the nitty gritty. We plaster on a smile and opt for the new standard "I'm crazy busy".
What if you were able to steer your ship again, come out of the fog and find yourself running your business instead of your business running you. Well, I have a solution for you....I am launching a holistic health, wellness, and wealth coaching program specifically for creatives.
All me to introduce Stop Editing Start Living. I'll be coaching creatives (photographers, designers, coaches, event planners, basically any creative) who is finding themselves in a power struggle between life and work. All of the coaching that I will be offering is designed specifically to your unique challenges and based around your goals.
This program was inspired by my own four year journey from rock bottom to find myself in my business/life again. I understand first hand what it takes to juggle a full time business with keeping your sanity and not losing yourself. Granted, I had to hit rock bottom to discover this, but now I am on a quest to help as many creatives avoid making the same mistakes and wrecking their "ship".
Are you ready to STOP EDITING AND START LIVING? Let's schedule a time to chat, you'll get a taste of what it's like to work with a coach, determine if I am a good fit for you, and quite honestly if you are a good fit for me.
