Tipping Point: When Busy Becomes Burnout
Busy busy busy. The life of an entrepreneur is one full of action and hustle. You’ve got strategies to create, content to write, and networking to do. Oh yeah…and clients to delight! If you’ve been in a whirlwind for longer than you can remember, it’s time to change it. Setting strong boundaries, and then enforcing them in your communications and contracts is how you’re going to keep up that earning level, while saying sayonara to the constant buzz of busyness. Define how many iterations you’re willing to provide, what days of the week you respond to emails, and how far in advance client inputs are required…so that you don’t find yourself up at 3am on a Saturday night working through revision 3452 of a logo because the client sent the graphics file late.
