Self-Care Negligence

The Dark Side of Being an Entrepreneur

I see you. You know what I’m talking about.
You’re working your butt off to create an incredible life for yourself.
You’re overwhelmed, over-stressed, and overworked with your many roles as a mom, partner, employee, and homemaker. And most likely a longer list of titles that I haven’t mentioned.
Look, I totally understand that you want to create an amazing life for yourself.
Self-care is something that can’t be ignored as you build your empire.
Did you know that self-care negligence is a common occurrence in the entrepreneurial world?
Unfortunately, not too many successful entrepreneurs talk about this dark side.
Why not?
It’s not appealing. It’s not glamorous. It’s not attractive.
That’s why a small number of successful entrepreneurs, like me, talk about this undesirable truth. I have some of the best experts involved in the Love Yourself First Series. It’s five INCREDIBLE days to love your mind, love your body, and love your life!

DON’T DO WHAT I’VE DONE!

I don’t want you to make the same mistake I made in 2013.
If you knew me that year, you would know that 2013 was the best year of my business. I had FINALLY arrived!
I was making consistent income with ease.
I became an International Best Selling Author because of my involvement in a major book collaboration.
My podcast, Reach Your Next Level of Greatness, was listed as one of the Top 100 Small Business Podcasts with only 10 episodes.
I was getting major attention from the media and other ambitious entrepreneurs.
If you knew me that year, you would know that 2013 was the worst year of my personal life. I had FINALLY crashed and burned!
I gained 30+ pounds from consuming a ton of sugar.
I was stressed out every single day.
I was sleeping less than three hours a day.
I wasn’t active at all and refused to exercise.
I neglected my body and my mind.
It’s a life lesson that I’ll never forget. It’s a life lesson not worth repeating.
I ended up taking a two year self-care sabbatical from my business because I crashed and burned.
This would have never happened if I treated my mind and body with love.
I have a serious question for you.
Actually, I want to ask you two questions.
Have you been putting your self-care on the back burner because you want to achieve your definition of success with your business? Or do you want to avoid crashing and burning in the days ahead?
It’s time to make the necessary adjustments to be your very best as an entrepreneur. It’s time to love your mind, love your body, love your life!
