3 Common Mistakes Most Women Entrepreneurs Make

Pump the Brakes Before You Break

Have you ever heard the saying, you have to slow down to speed up?

As an entrepreneur that sounded super silly to me when I first heard it!  I mean you want me to slow down this momentum I have going, right now!  Why would I ever do that? 

Good point!

Now if you and your business are doing amazing in every aspect, absolutely keep that momentum going…


If you and your business are not so great, it’s time to pump those brakes, assess the big picture, and then make a new plan! Keep listening if you are feeling like your life and business are out of balance!

If we did an assessment of you and your business right now, how would you both rate?

Are you both healthy, balanced and producing the results needed to grow?

Most of the women business owners I work with, would say no, and then ask, is that even possible?

Yes, it truly is!

Now is it ever going to be perfect, absolutely not, nothing in life is perfect, but you can design a life and business that work together in harmony where you feel a sense of peace!

So how do you accomplish that?

That’s a great question and the answer is very simple!

You need to seriously slow down, just long enough to assess each area of your life and business, be honest with yourself about what is working and what is not, then make a plan, and execute!

Sounds simple enough, right!

Here are the 3 common mistakes and things I do when I am feeling off balance and need to regain that peace in my life!

Mistake #1 – Having no down time to breathe, think & assess! When this happens, I schedule a couple of time blocks where I can just think with no distractions.  I usually choose a weekend and let my family know I am working on something and need some quiet time.  Then I put away all the distractions of phones, email, and social media, this is key!  Finally, I start looking at my schedule item by item and crunching the numbers for the past 30, 60, 90 days.

Mistake #2 – Not reviewing your dream lifestyle vision daily! So the next thing I do is, I ask myself, what is my life mission and goals, and am I working on them daily?  As Steve Jobs says, if the answer is no, too many days in a row, it’s time for a change!  If you need help designing your dream lifestyle vision, you can watch this video here

Mistake #3 – Never saying NO! Ugh this last thing is sometimes the hardest for me, where do I adjust my sails to catch a better wind with the momentum I need to grow!  This means, eliminating what’s not working from Step 1 and increasing what is working from Step 1.  So, for example, maybe you have been attending a networking event for 6 months and have not seen the benefits from it, is it time to leave the group altogether or make it your mission each time you go, to leave with 3 business cards, that you actually follow up with and build relationships!  Or maybe you have seen an increase in sales from Facebook Ads and need to research how you can dive deeper into this to increase your conversion rates!

When I had my franchise business, I was lucky to have 2 amazing neighboring women owners who I would do this with quarterly!  These meetings would reinvigorate me, give me an outside view of what was going on, and a plan moving forward.

In summary

Life is never going to be perfect, and we will always be going through seasons where we feel completely out of balance, but this cannot go on for long periods of time.  So, grab your calendar, find some time to slow down for a bit, and take some time to assess your life and business, so you can adjust and start living this one life to its fullest!
