What does success look like for you?
As a business owner/ entrepreneur ….. This is always a question that is asked but quite often not thought of before starting your own business or possibly lost along the way.
To be honest it’s a question that has such a positive impact on any part of your life, it’s one that benefits us in all areas.
Knowing what you want to achieve and what it will look like is what will keep you going through the ups and downs of having your own business. Often all just in one day!
A lot of people visualise, journal, have vision boards - all things that help keep the focus on where they want to be. I’m a real process person and I’ll be honest, I found this really difficult to do.
I like to know specifics and so I’m often focused on the journey and not the destination.
I’m not a go with the flow type - a product of my personal and professional lives. My jobs were all process driven, getting right into the detail and as they were Senior Management roles, the logistical details rolled into my personal life too - fitting everything together; travelling between cities to care for poorly parents, meeting friends, spending time with my husband….. It was all carefully orchestrated, ever searching for the holy grail that we’ve been sold from the moment we start that first job - “The Work/Life Balance” (that’s a whole different conversation)
For me just sitting down, never mind quietly and trying to create a vision is just impossible.
As I have developed my business I do work to balance out my process mind. I believe in the universe and there are clear moments in my life where when I look back now I can see the synchronicity. Read on to hear more about how Kristan moved her business to Majorca to live her definition of success.
