7 secrets to fighting burnout

How do we stay motivated and keep the momentum going?⁠⁠ We all do this, don’t we? We sit down, outline some goals, and immediately dive into trying to accomplish them as quickly as possible.⁠⁠ And then, at some point, we burn out.⁠

Let’s talk about balance…

Let’s talk about balance…

What does balance really mean for a business owner, wife, friend, mother — and all the other roles we may take on in our lives?

CEO of Creations by Sasha shares how she maintains work-life balance with the District Bliss community

Ask any mom and they’ll tell you – there’s a myth that we somehow balance it all. I like to think of it as juggling. At any one time, there’s something up in the air that we’re just waiting to fall back down so we can deal with it.

In my life, I “juggle” five pretty distinct roles – wife, mom, business owner, day-job worker, and friend.

Here’s how I manage to keep up with everything.

We're already one week into June. This year has flown by already and I'm just now starting to realize where I've been slacking off in my business.⁠
⁠⁠
If you're like me, you haven't really focused on keeping your books in order. ⁠

Why does that always seem to be the thing that slips through the cracks and then I DREAD it at the end of the year — and it takes hours to do something that would have taken minutes. ⁠

It's easy to remember what you ordered from Amazon in May when it's still May. ⁠When it’s December… not so much.⁠

And, I know I should be better, but I just don't have the tools I need in order to get myself there.⁠

That's why I'm excited about our upcoming workshop, Bookkeeping for Entrepreneurs: Easy to Implement, Actionable Practices with @findyourbalancewithneda TODAY.⁠

Because I'm starting the second half of the year off right and not drowning in December!⁠

Who's with me?! 👇⁠ ⁠

Are free courses really free?⁠

The honest truth: no.⁠

There's always some sort of expectation associated with a "free" event.⁠

So, why are they "free"?⁠ It’s a fulfillment and engagement opportunity.

Attendees are getting tons of knowledge from the host; the host is sharing expertise and filling a program, mailing list, or whatever the purpose of the funnel.

A few reminders as an attendee...

👉 Expect to be pitched. Think of it like TV, podcasts, or anything else. If you don't want an advertisement or commercial, you need to pay for it.⁠

👉 Expect to be added to someone's newsletter and probably receive a nurture campaign to drive you toward a purchase.⁠

And for the hosts... ⁠
💪 No business owner should be giving their skillset or sharing their knowledge for free.💡 ⁠You all deserve to be paid for what you put out into the world, so develop your funnel before hosting your free event.

💪 A free course is a sales tactic — and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. ⁠

💪 In fact, it works well because you're developing and deepening the know, like, and trust factor with every attendee.⁠

But what if you don't want to be pitched or emailed?⁠ Then choose courses that are paid to attend. ⁠

(And, of course, the same goes for freebies, summits, challenges, workshops, discovery calls, events, etc. etc. etc. — you get the idea.)⁠

Do you use free courses are part of your sales funnel? 👇
