Today, I want to talk to you about something personal.

I launched my 9-week live online course Polished CEO  last Thursday after my Free Webinar The 3 Habits You Need to Grow Your Profits. It’s a comprehensive approach to healthy finances for entrepreneurs who don’t know where to begin when it comes to streamlining financial systems for their business. I’m sooooo excited about this but I can’t help but feel a little weird.

Let me explain.

I’ve been helping badass entrepreneurs and businesses slay their taxes for over a decade now. But right now feels different. I’m reaching women on a macro scale. Instead of just doing their taxes, I’m sharing the necessary tools to reaching bigger bags. That is a lot responsibility and I’m stressed about not making every move correctly. I want to be the best I can be.

As you can imagine, I’m a very busy woman. Balancing my CPA work, teaching Bikram Yoga, launching Polished CEO and my personal life is wearing me out.

That being said, that doesn’t mean I don’t have moments where I want to just give up. Days that seem overwhelming because of too many tasks, not enough time, low energy or brain power.

Social media is great but sometimes can present a one-sided view of a person. Don’t let the Instagrams, emails and Facebook posts fool you. It seems like I always have stuff together, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have insecurities in the background.

During these stressful times, I give myself a few seconds, minutes, hours — whatever is needed — to take a deep breath and relax. I get massages. If I feel like I’m not being productive or stressing out too much, I take a step back and close my laptop so I can not think about it for a little bit. It may sounds counterproductive to stop work when you have a lot to do, but I know I won’t be giving my best self to my passions and ambitions if I’m exhausted and worn out. It’s in your best interest to take care of yourself.

What’s troubling you at this moment and how are you dealing with it? It can be business related or personal. Think about it and reflect on what you need. If you want to share, hit REPLY and let me know.
