In today’s episode, Anna looks at practical strategies for recognising, preventing and managing burnout as an entrepreneur.
(1:22) “The last thing you want to do is to end up working harder than ever you did in your corporate job, which you probably left at least partly for the very reason of wanting to avoid burnout. If you’re stressed and unwell, you won’t be enjoying the work you’re doing but you won’t be enjoying the time you take off from work if you ever do take time off. And, when you are your business, taking care of yourself is taking care of your business.”
(2:21) “My first piece of advice and you will know this if you’ve been following me for while will always be: define what ‘success’ means to you. This means getting clear on the big-picture vision of what you want from your business, and your life; it means identifying the practical criteria for what you want your lifestyle to look like; and it means getting super clear on your specific priorities really on that day-to- day basis.”
(10:36) “I’m always talking about the importance of asking for help and surrounding yourself with a supportive community to help you through the ups and downs in your business and this is even more important in the specific context of avoiding burnout.”
