Taking The Pressure Off Start-Up Entrepreneurs
Business is not always easy even though there is a glamourised version of entrepreneurship that exists.
It's important to me to get real honest with you about what the start-up phase really looks like from an entrepreneur who has been right there in the trenches.

LET'S GET INTO IT
Today I want to talk to you about something that you experienced in your business startup journey (or you may still be feeling it), and I'm talking about pressure.
This episode is going to be a bit of a heart to heart because I care so much about your state of mind and I want you to be so very successful!
1. STARTING A BUSINESS
I started my business because I wanted to have the freedom to mother and parent how I wanted to. In this section, I'm chatting about why I started my business and what freedoms I craved.
Key Points I Discussed:
What is the maternal wall?
What freedoms were very important to me?
Why do most of the women in my tribe start their business?
What did the early days of starting my business look like?
2. TAKING THE PRESSURE OFF
Most of the time, the pressures that we feel are ones that we put on ourself.
In this section, I'm discussing what makes deadlines great and what makes deadlines not so great.
Key Points I Discussed:
How are some deadlines great?
What negatives do time bound success deadlines cause?
How long does it take to be successful?
- What is your definition of success?
- Entrepreneurship is a journey.
- It takes as long as it takes.
Why is it important to set milestones?
How does support matter when you're an entrepreneur?
In what ways would you show up in your business if money, time, and confidence wasn't an issue?
Keep in mind that starting a business is not something that you should set time bound success deadlines on. Entrepreneurship is a journey. Your success is inevitable if you're in it for the long-term. Find yourself a supportive community.
I'd love to know what success looks like to you! Tag me in your IG Stories (@mumswithhustle) telling me and maybe I'll repost you.
