Thoughts from Jennifer:
Transitioning out of corporate
Transition in such a way you aren’t unbelievably stressed.
You are not your business. We are too interconnected with our identity and the business’s identity and it can hinder our profitability.
If we are focused on huge profits, we aren’t focused enough on our clients. The profits come from engaging with our clients.
What are mindsets that hold us back from being profitable?
What excuses are we holding on to that keep us unprofitable?
Profits come from serving well.
Fear can come from being successful.
Fear happens when you begin to push outside of your comfort zone.
The feeling of fear and excitement are the same. It doesn’t have to be fear if you don’t want it to be. Choose excitement instead!
It is important to balance physical time, energy and self-care.
Step out of busy, busy, busy and be more strategic. This allows us to get more done in the day.
Create times of silence.
