Are you an awake business owner at risk of burnout?
I understand the unique challenges faced by independent business owners like you.

In our journey as awake individuals, we often find ourselves carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders. We worry about what will happen to our family and friends who may not fully comprehend our innate knowing. It’s a path less travelled and can feel very lonely at times.

As independent small business owners, we are not just the captains of our ships; we are the ships themselves. Our businesses are an extension of who we are, and they thrive when we do. That’s why it’s crucial to prioritise self-care. In the world of entrepreneurship, it’s not just about managing your business; it’s also about managing your life!

At BusinessPLUS, we believe in the power of the PLUSES in your life. To embark on this journey of self-improvement and find balance, start by identifying the primary Areas of Focus using the Wheel of Life Assessment. This simple exercise involves scoring yourself from one to ten in eight crucial categories: Career, Finance, Personal Growth, Health, Family, Relationships, Social Life, and Attitude.

Now, here’s where things get interesting. We all have areas where we excel and areas where we struggle. It’s human nature to spend more time in our comfort zones, often neglecting our areas of weakness. For instance, you might excel in maintaining your health but struggle with financial management. The Wheel of Life exercise serves as a spotlight on these disparities, bringing them to your conscious mind.

A fulfilling life is defined by inner balance and continuous growth. The more effective you become in each of your Areas of Focus, the more fulfilment you’ll experience in life and business alike. However, the most crucial step in this journey is awareness.

Awareness is everything. Once you’re aware of your strengths and weaknesses, you can determine two or three actionable steps to make improvements in the areas where you’re weakest. Here are some practical tips to help you regain balance in your life:

Prioritise Self-Care: Your well-being is the foundation of your business. Dedicate time to nourishing your physical and mental health through exercise, meditation, and relaxation techniques.

Set Boundaries: Define clear boundaries between work and personal life. This separation will prevent burnout and ensure you have quality time for yourself and your loved ones.

Seek Support: Don’t hesitate to seek advice and support from fellow business owners, mentors, or organisations like BusinessPLUS. Find a community that understands your unique journey.

Financial Planning: If financial management is your weak point, consider hiring a financial advisor or taking courses to improve your financial literacy. It’s an investment that can pay substantial dividends.

Continuous Learning: Commit to personal growth and development. Attend workshops, read books, and expand your knowledge to stay ahead in your industry.

Delegate and Automate: Recognise that you can’t do everything on your own. Delegate tasks and automate processes to free up your time for more critical activities.

Regularly Reassess: Periodically revisit your Wheel of Life Assessment to track your progress and adjust your priorities as needed. Life is dynamic, and so are your goals.

Remember, as an awake business owner, your journey is unique, but you’re not alone. At WABN, we’re here to support you to achieve the balance and success you deserve. Embrace the power of the PLUSES, and let’s navigate this journey together.
