Welcome to the sixth-degree Podcast, the podcast where we grill our guests about the things that make them tick, and find out how human connection plays a role in their life. I’m your host, Emily Merrill. I’m your host, Emily Merrill. And today is another solo episode where I’m going to talk to you about and tell you a story about the time when I lost myself. And where I lost myself in my business. It was the end of 2019. And I hired at a marketing agency. And I loved it, it was incredible. It taught me consistency and organization. And it was wonderful having another group of individuals to throw ideas against. And to know that my social media was done, that it was written that the captions were written that although I wrote all the newsletters they were all scheduled when I wanted them to. And so for about a year and a half, I worked with this agency. And then I got to a point where I realized I wasn’t excited about my business, I kind of lost myself, I had done such a great job of delegating everything out that I didn’t even know how to drive my website, I didn’t even know how to schedule a newsletter. I didn’t know how to check for analytics. And I felt like I had lost myself. And the vision which I’ve created for the business, I felt guilty and bad changing captions, I was getting more and more disconnected from the content that was going out. And I think my audience could tell as well, they knew that I wasn’t behind it, they could tell that it wasn’t my voice behind it. And so at the end of July 2021, the agency and I decided to split ways, and parkways and it really was a return to self. Because I was able to then hire individuals that represented exactly what I wanted in terms of the business, I was able to conduct team meetings exactly in the style that I wanted, where we, all of us collectively, were working towards the same goal. It felt like a team, rather than actually delegating things out to this like an external group and organization. So this is more of just a reflection, for a call for reflection for you to look at your own business, and to take inventory of it. And to realize how much of it you know, how much of the expenses are you up? You know, are you caught up on your revenue? You know, the day-to-day marketing things? And do you feel connected to your business? And if you don’t, you know, think about it kind of like going like a relationship. It’s something that definitely needs to be maintained. A relationship isn’t something that just happens one and done. It’s something that needs to be nurtured. You know, your business shouldn’t be your soulmate. It shouldn’t complete you, it should probably compliment you and the life that you want to live. And because if you imagined like an all-consuming relationship, one that dominated your thoughts, your weekdays and your weekends, you couldn’t leave the house, if you were in a relationship like that. You don’t want to be in a relationship like that with your business. And you know, your business will have ebbs and flows, there are going to be moments that you can be so aligned and sure one another in other days that you’re ready to throw in the towel. So just a few thoughts on how to how to fall back in love with your business, or how to fall in love with your business. And it doesn’t have to be as drastic as parting ways with a marketing agency. But you know, a few things to remember my first piece of advice is to remember why you started? Go back to the beginner’s mindset. What lit you up. When about your business when you started? What excited you at the beginning? What were your clients like at the very start, go revisit your testimonials. What have your clients get out of working with you fall in love with the transformations that you’ve provided these individuals and remind yourself that you’re doing work for a reason? But there has to be a reason why you were doing that work. Go on a date with your business, spend some time with your business, you might have to mix things up to keep that spark alive. Give yourself empty space on your calendar where you can dive into your numbers. You can map out the year. You can be creative, you don’t have to be in the day-to-day of it. You don’t have to turn off your email, don’t respond to email, but just focus on it. The vision that you have for it, and let yourself be a visionary. bring in outside help. Sometimes you don’t have it most of the time, it feels like you’re doing it alone. But you don’t have to do it alone, especially as a solopreneur. Bringing in an outside expert to help get your mojo back and implement new strategies could be a friend who’s doing a brainstorm with you. It could be a business coach, it could be a mindset coach, or it could be someone that just helps expand you. So those are a few of my ideas for falling back in love with your business, and how I was able to fall back in love with mine after going on a little break. So if you want more information on just finding ways and sparks to reignite your love of your business, shoot me a message. I’m a business coach, and I would love to help you. I want to my greatest pride and joys is helping people get clarity in their business. And it’s weird. It’s like I have this, I have this gift where I’m able to see what a person is supposed to do and their next steps before they even believe that they’re capable of doing it. And I love more than anything else, just pushing people out of their comfort zone during them to try during them to experiment and daring them to like pull the ripcord on their life and really make a radical change. So, if you liked today’s episode, please give us a five-star review. Share with your friends and shoot me a note on Instagram. My Instagram is @emilyamerrell and I look forward to hearing from you and hearing your thoughts and falling back in love with your business.
