Listen to yourself.
It is important not to neglect the one thing that keeps you going in this world – yourself. As a small business owner, it’s easy to get overly involved in your work and allow it to creep into all areas of your life. Pursuing activities and relationships that keep you balanced allows you to go the distance/prevents burnout.
Schedule fun activities with your family, take time to enjoy a sport like a golf/tennis, eat well, and get good rest. Trust me, the world isn’t going to end if you shift your focus a bit. Listen to your body and mind so that you remain sharp.
Also, listen to your gut instinct – it’s usually right. Psychology Today explains that your intuition is shaped by experiences and the knowledge gained from those experiences. If a business decision doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t.
Bottom line, if you practice listening to your support system, your customers, and yourself, you’ll be able to create more wins.” Seneca wraps things up, explaining, “We love what we do, we love our clients, we love interacting with people and fully understanding who they are and where they want to go. I think people sense that and can tell when you are genuinely interested in serving their best interests. I am pleased to be working with people that have that kind of heart.”
If you’ve got the heart to listen, use it. It’s your key to entrepreneurial success.
