MWH 176 : The #1 Thing You Can’t Afford To Overlook During Online Launches

The #1 Thing You Can’t Afford To Overlook During Online Launches

The “hard work pays off” mentality is an ideology that is SO counterproductive. When you stop taking time for yourself, this mentality becomes counterproductive.

You become drained. Your skills are lacking (even in your zone of genius). You find it hard to focus…

The truth is that you might believe you’re working hard, but you’re not working efficiently and that's because you're not making time for self-care. No matter how fancy it may sound, self-care is pivotal for our physical, mental, and emotional well-being!


I'm very passionate about self-care, especially self-care for entrepreneurs. Launch season is always such a busy time, so it's incredibly important to remember to fill your cup – that way you can continue to show up for your tribe as your best self.

1. Putting Self-Care First

Self-care isn't just for one day of the week! Self-care during launches is so important, and it's very easy during a busy period to let your self-care slip.

Key Points I Discussed:

Why is it easy to be all consumed in a launch?

  • You think there is no time.
  • You feel overwhelmed.

How can you be proactive rather than reactive?
Why should you view self-care as a journey?

2. What do I do for self-care?

When the self-care is lacking, that's when I notice the mean girl in my head speaks to me a lot louder, imposter syndrome pops up, and it becomes more difficult to operate from a place of service. So I'm excited to share with you what I do for self-care during my launches!

Key Points I Discussed:

What self-care things do I do during launches?

  • My hair was washed at the salon with a blow dry, once a week over two weeks. I scheduled in getting my color done, as well.
  • The pampering continued with a mani, pedi, a waxing treatment, and even a henna tattoo.
  • Time was scheduled into my calendar for my friends and socializing, which became a non-negotiable.
  • I ate well, with intention.

What do I have to work on during my next launch?

  • I need to incorporate more exercise!


I would love for you to pull out your calendar or diary and schedule in some self-care! It does not have to be something that costs money. It could be carving out time for exercise, planning a healthy menu, taking a longer bath, or getting your outfits ahead of time. There are so many amazing (and sometimes boring) things that you can do for self-care that will leave you feeling your best!
