Productivity Hacks to become a successful Fempreneur
Updated: Sep 1, 2019
The journey as an entrepreneur is probably one of the most exciting journeys you’ll ever embark on, not only because it will give you the financial freedom and lifestyle that you’re looking to achieve; but because of the growth and self-development that you will experience as a human, and that is something that money can’t buy.
Are you familiar with that phrase “Everything happens for a reason”, then believe it, is 100 % true. Those moments when you’re giving it your all and you feel frustrated or overwhelmed, think about this phrase. The Universe has a plan for you and if you’re not where you are yet, is because they are things that need to be resolved in your personal life first in order to be able to progress on your business.
Remember this is huge, you’re not only building a business, you’re designing and creating the life you want for yourself and the people you love the most. To be able to achieve that you will have to both, unlearn a tons of unnecessary and negative stuff that you’ve been carrying and believing throughout your entire life; and learn a ton of new exciting things and skills that will help you grow, both as a person and as an entrepreneur.
This is just some of the things that You’ll learn:
NO, you don’t know it all!
YOUR EGO is your worst enemy!
PERFECTION is a myth!
NOT everything is what it seems!
PATIENCE is your best friend!
ACTION is more powerful than knowledge!
And some of the ones you need to unlearn:
I DON’T know how?
I AM NOT smart enough!
I DON’T have time!
IT’S EASY for them!
FAILURE is a bad thing!
Anyways, that’s going to be the topic for another blog post… For now, I’m going to leave you with some of my top 5 advice that I wished someone would have told me when I first started my business, but ey… I learned the hard way and now I have some advice to give you if you’re just starting your journey as a business owner/ entrepreneur and you can save yourself the embarrassment and the countless hours that I wasted doing things that I thought were productive but in fact, were not.
1- CHANGE YOUR VOCABULARY.
Erase the words CAN’T, UNABLE and PERFECT out of your vocabulary and replace them with positive affirmations such as “I AM UNSTOPPABLE”, “I AM FIERCE”, “I AM SUCCESSFUL”, “I AM AN INSPIRING LEADER”, “I AM FEARLESS”. You get it? The more you repeat these phrases to yourself, the more confident and productive you become.
2- PLAN YOUR WEEK AHEAD.
I usually do this on Sunday night according to what has happened during that week.
Pick 5 money generating activities for each day and try to stick to them. Generating activities doesn’t not mean scrolling down Facebook or checking the pretty pictures on Instagram.
Money generating activities such as connecting with other entrepreneurs to do collaborations, LIVE trainings, or guest invite to your Facebook group or any social media platform where your ideal clients are. If you’re a business owner who sells products instead of a service, connect with people who have your same or other products to do a training together or help promote one another.
I highly recommend to start your business day doing the activities that you’re not too crazy about it but need to be done and finish with the thing that you love doing the most, that way you end up your business day on the high, positive and not the contrary; specially if you haven’t mastered TIP number 1 yet.
3- STOP SPAMMING AND START REAL CONNECTIONS!
Please, please, please, there’s enough spam going around, don’t be one of those people. If you’re a new business owner and you want to make friends with someone that pops up on your feed, please do that, make friends! I know you’re excited that you started a business and you want to share it with everyone but please don’t, not until you’re asked what you do, then the floor is yours! Do you girl!
Some of the people that you meet online can become your friends for life and like friendships on the offline world, you would do anything for them and them for you because we all want to succeed and if you don’t know that yet, together we can accomplish so much more than alone.
Ah, and very important, check their profile when in doubt, see what they do, what are their passions, job, business… Don’t be that person who tries to sell them the same that they are offering in their own business!
4- TIME IS PRECIOUS, use it wisely!
If you’re going to check your Facebook, Instagram or whichever online platform you use for your business, make sure to do it with intention, don’t just scroll and waste your time checking things that won’t help you grow personally or your business. If you’re in groups, engage with people, make friends, give advice, answer questions if you can provide the answers and if you can’t, learn from others.
5- LOOK AFTER YOURSELF! YOU ARE NUMBER ONE PRIORITY AND THE ENGINE BEHIND YOUR BUSINESS.
Stop if you need a breather; go for a walk; go meet a friend for a coffee; spend time with the people you love; spend time with yourself, doing absolutely nothing if that’s what you feel like; or go to a yoga class; whatever is that will help you recharge your soul and spirit. Creating and doing takes time, energy and dedication; you need to clear your mind again to let new ideas and strategies in, especially if you’ve been working on the same project for a while, you need to step away and come back to it when the head is clearer.
Your business is not going anywhere and neither are you!
Treat the online world the same way you would treat the offline world; be kind; be respectful; be friendly; be authentic; share your uniqueness; be helpful… and most of all, have fun!
Remember, this is a journey of a lifetime, enjoy every moment of it, celebrate your failures as much as your wins; people who don’t fail are the people who haven’t tried hard enough.
Keep learning, keep improving yourself, keep taking action and when the right moment comes, you’ll know!
Wishing you all the success in the world! The Universe and I are cheering for you!
You’ve got this Queen!
Love, Light, BE
