Being mum and entrepreneur
In today’s episode, Anna looks at being a mum and an entrepreneur, and the things that you learn when you have a baby that will make you a better business person.
(2:57) “In business, you also need to be getting out of that familiar comfort zone on a daily basis as well, you need to keep learning new things and developing both yourself and your business. Continuously trying new things and challenging yourself will help you stay relevant in a fast-moving industry and will make sure that you stay ahead of your competition rather than resting on your laurels and just doing what you have been doing and sticking with what you know.”
(8:00) “In business, too, while there are experts and coaches you can consult and work with, and I think they give a lot of value. ultimately, it’s your business and you need to make the final call. That actually means trusting your intuition about what your priorities should be and what are the right action steps that will get you there. This is a skill that will be honed with time and experience, but having had to really trust yourself when it comes to your baby’s survival and wellbeing will definitely stand you in good stead for your business decisions as well.”
(9:40) “Likewise, in business, however much you plan you can’t control what the market, or your potential clients, or the world as a whole will actually do, how things will evolve. Having a vision, putting in place a strategy and having the discipline to take consistent action each and every day and week, will all set you up for success – but the reality is that you’ll need to adapt to what you see actually happening in order to stay relevant and effective.”
