Are you feeling overwhelmed as an entrepreneur? Well, the good news is it’s a common feeling among entrepreneurs and you’re not alone. Entrepreneurs have so many hats to wear, so many distractions and moving parts to their business that they need to be on top of. It can seriously feel like life is crumbling and you’ve barely got things together. I typically see three common things that get entrepreneurs a little flustered and feeling like they’re losing control. Let’s dive in.
1. You don’t know who you’re talking to. You’re completely overwhelmed by putting yourself out there and by being visible because you don’t know who to be visible to! The whole content creation process is confusing to you. My advice: Focus, focus, focus. You have to be very clear and narrow down who you want to speak directly to, that way you won’t feel like you’re just throwing dust in the wind.
2. You don’t have clear goals. Again, it goes back to reason number one. If you’re clear with who you want to speak to, then you have to be clear with how you want to show up for them. You need to be able to measure your success and set expectations for yourself. This is a foundational concept, yet it’s missed 9 out of 10 times.
3. Time management!! So, you know who your target audience is, you know what milestones you need to hit, but all of a sudden, you don’t have the time to set the right strategies in place! Ugh! This is why you need to schedule in time so you can be SURE it doesn’t slip by you and you wake up months later realizing you haven’t moved a single step towards your goal. Time management is huge in the entrepreneur world. Get your calendar and pencil in the time!
