Marlene Powell – How in love are you with your business?

I f you, as a business owner, want to reignite the passion in your business and learn to LOVE what you do whilst building a commercial profitable business that works without YOU then invest time to read on!

With February being the month of love would you say that you love your business the same way you did when you first started? Are you able to say that your business loves you in return by fulfilling all aspects of your life i.e.:

Wheel of Life*
• Job Satisfaction/Career
• Money
• Fun and Recreation
• Friends
• Family
• Romance
• Personal Growth
• Spiritual
• Health
• Physical Environment

Rate yourself in each of these very important areas of your life and then see how strong your relationship really is between you and your business.

If you had to look at your relationship with your business as a marriage, are you both giving 100% to fulfil the above? If the answer is no, have you decided to ‘have an affair’ and start other businesses on the sideline because your primary business is not performing as it should i.e. giving you the time and money to enjoy the finer things in life (Quality of Life) or are you ready to throw in the towel?

February is not just about love in your personal life but should be about growing and improving the love/relationship that you and your business have. Owning a business is the same commitment as being married. It won’t work if you aren’t willing to work on it and make the changes that need to be made.

If you are ready to make this relationship work, then let’s start by taking the following actions:

Allow yourself to DREAM what your ideal life would be like. What will your life look like in each of the above areas*? ? How will it feel to be living that lifestyle, what do you see yourself doing and, how would it sound to have all of those aspects in your life giving you joy and fulfilment? Give yourself permission to dream like a child and create a life that you would be totally elated with.

Now that you have had time to THINK IT, it’s time to INK IT. Write down the #1 ACTION you need to take in each aspect of your life that describes and captures what your ideal lifestyle would be.

Be SMART when setting your #1 Goals.

Let’s design your life because if you don’t someone else will.

What does my ideal life look like?
Firstly, at a personal level (which may involve some aspects of career or business): If I were to pretend that I worked towards creating my ideal day what does my ideal day look like? What am I driving? Who is greeting me? How am I feeling? What is different? What is the same?

What do I have to?:
• STOP doing
• START doing
• CONTINUE doing
• Do MORE/LESS of

Now that you have your ideal ‘day in the life of YOU’ in writing and, now you are not sure how to ensure it will actually happen then make contact with me on https://linkshare.co.ca/marlenepowell or 083 479 4471 because “Your Success IS My Business!”
