Women in the Business Arena™ EP 31: Mother’s guilt or carer’s guilt: how we find the balance between all of things we love
As women, we are often juggling different care roles and as mother’s we have a particular challenge with navigating motherhood and business. Today we wanted to talk about mother’s guilt or carer’s guilt and the way we can often feel torn by not having enough time or energy to give to everyone and everything we care about. As business owners, most of us love our businesses, but we also love our family, hobbies or the parts of lives that pull us in a different direction.
Women in the Business Arena™ EP 30: Keeping up the momentum in your business as we approach the end of the year
It's that time of year when so many business owners start losing momentum as they move into the holidays, so today we wanted to talk about some perspectives and strategies on how to keep your momentum moving in your business through the holidays so you can start off the new year right. We talk about why our energy in our business matters and we can’t afford to check out for months at a time without it seriously impacting our business.
In this episode, I am talking about stabilising your business by stripping it back to the basics. In my experience, too many women are trying to grow or scale an unstable business. Ultimately, this doesn’t work, so either they don’t end up growing their business or their business falls like a house of cards. Here we talk about what it looks like and feels like to have a stable business.
In today’s episode, we wanted to talk about profit and specifically why profit comes before impact. Many women want to change the world, support others and really contribute to the lives around us. We often struggle to tie in the importance of profit to our impact equation. Women can do some much in the world when we are in power and that includes financial power. This is a good conversation around why we need to be focused on making a profit in our businesses.
