Guilt. Ah yes – the greatest enemy of women in business (and just women in general).
With so many responsibilities and multiple balls to juggle, it’s hard to “switch off” or (*gasp*) treat ourselves!
I work super hard on my business. To be fair, I do this willingly. I love my business and I want it to be a success, so I don’t begrudge the time and effort I put into it. If I work long hours it’s because I choose to – not because I’m forced to.
But I’m not immune to women entrepreneur guilt trips!
As I share in my video, I felt guilty today as I decided to unshackle myself from the computer and take myself shopping. I just felt like I should be back at my desk, ticking things off my list!
Taking time out from our business is healthy. It’s an important thing to do and something we should not feel guilty about. So – make it a priority this week to take the time to do something *just* for yourself (not your family, not your partner – just YOU).
This is a big conversation. I’d love to hear your views and opinions. How do you take time out? DO you take time out? Do you suffer from women entrepreneur guilt trips? What can we do to help each other out?
