Being Kind to Yourself as a Woman in Business

March 17, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

You are the most important part of your business! Join Claire Collis to consider how you can be kind to yourself & still achieve your goals

Being Kind to Yourself as a Women in Business

There are so many things that we as female business owners can and do excel at, but being kind to ourselves is not always one of them. In fact we sometimes don’t even realise just how incredibly and unnecessarily hard we are being on ourselves until someone else points it out. Not sure if this applies to you? Then consider if any of these statements sound familiar;

– I almost never give myself sick leave, paid holiday or lunch breaks; I might be the worst boss I’ve ever had.

– I would never talk to a friend the way I talk to myself in my head about my ideas, my work or my business.

– I often think that the way I run my business is not professional enough, or that I should be doing things the way other people do them.

– This list has the potential to go on and on, but you get the idea…

What it all boils down to is that as business owners we are usually the foundation of our businesses, especially when our businesses are young. This means that looking after ourselves is important and intentionally doing so usually has a significant return on investment. Adversely, not doing so can have serious negative consequences for our health and wellbeing, as well as our business profitability, growth and longevity.

In this session you will have the opportunity to think about how you treat yourself as a part of your business now, the business/life dynamic you personally want to achieve, and how you can realistically find ways to get there whilst generally being kinder to yourself.
