Before you go off in a huff, here are some signs that your business might be the one in charge:
You do know that it's not supposed to be that way, right?
You probably started your business for all sorts of reasons, and they probably all have something to do with freedom and flexibility. Freedom to run your business the way you want. Flexibility to work when you want. Freedom to travel and provide wonderful things for yourself and your family. Flexibility to do only your Zone of Genius work and let someone else do the work in the other zones.
And most business owners and entrepreneurs get to the point where they feel chained to their business, more so than at any corporate job they ever had. So, if that's you, just know you're not alone.
AND... you have a choice. You can do things differently.
So, how do you move from your business bossing you around, to your being the boss?
Part of it is mindset. You have to choose to be in charge. You have to choose to make your business a part of your life, not the whole pie. Start taking time for yourself. Plan vacations. Don't feel like you have to respond to an email within five minutes of receiving it.
The other part comes down to systems. That means you have to have systems. Next, is getting support, whether that's a VA, team, coach, or mastermind. You have to do things differently, and you may need some guidance on how to implement the different ways of doing.
