6 Ways to Deal with Overwhelm as an Entrepreneur

July 10, 2020

Entrepreneurs are inherently more “busy”… we have to do everything in our own businesses and even some of us who have team members still feel called to put our little paws on everything.

Overwhelm ususally comes as a result of the lack of planning. At least for me it does… also lets go ahead and throw on the tendency to take on too much. We say yes a lot thinking it will get us further ahead when in reality depending on what you’re saying yes to it could be setting you back on your quest for success. (RE listen to the episode on saying no)

So these steps may help you as they have helped me when I’m feeling overwhelmed in my business.

Grab a pen and paper and write it all down

I like to take a piece of paper and draw a line right down the middle. On one side write down all of your business tasks. Don’t mute or edit yourself. Write it down no matter how big or small. On the other side write down all the personal things on your mind.

Re-write your goals

You are going to make a list of your goals for the next 3 months.
 
You aren’t just going to start knocking these things off your to do list.
 
You are going to start categorizing the action items them under those goals you wrote down. If an item doesn’t pertain to a goal then leave it on the page.
 
Now the rest of the things on the list…. ask yourself… are these things vital to the success of my goals, are they something I promised someone else I would do, can I put these things off for now?

Make Pinterest Easy

Grab our Pinterest Strategy Checklist & Pinterest Trends Calendar so you know when to pin, what to pin and why you should pin it. If your goal is to get more traffic, grow your email list & sell more then you’re in good hands.

 

Take time to focus on the process not the outcome.

This isn’t my original idea… in fact I was recently listening to an audio book and this was the message I took away from that chapter. I realized myself that I focus too much on the outcome. I don’t take enough time to focus on how I’m getting there and what I’m doing to get there but instead on what comes from my work. I quickly brush off the “success” and move onto the next thing. This is one of the issues with my ennegram 3 personality.

Stop multitasking

When I stopped multi-tasking and started batching my work I started to get more done in less time. Do one task at at time. Close your tabs friend. Your goals deserve it.
 
If you can afford it hire an assistant to help you a few hours a week. My favorite place to find VAs is Freeeup. I have a link in the show notes where you can sign up for Freeeup. They vet their freelancers with a fine tooth comb!

Stop adding more ideas to your list

Unless it’s already part of your strategy or goal don’t add more things. From the outside looking in you would think this podcast is me adding more ideas to my already overflowing plate. BUT this year one of my goals was to show up more, add more value to my audience and produce more content that leads people to my products & services. This podcast is wholly repurposed content giving me another way to for people to find me. It’s also a creative outlet.
 
As entrepreneurs we have a lot of ideas. Great ideas. Unless it serves your current goals put it on a list of ideas to do in the future. There is no harm in dreaming! Dream baby dream.

Start small

You don’t need to build an entire website in one day. If your goal is to redesign your website start with wire-framing the overall design you envision. Then start small. Start with colors and fonts. Then add in a new logo. If you are busy with all the other things in your business and no matter your goal… start small. What item can you spend 1 hour on today and make solid progress?
 
This year has been a transformational year for me in my business overall. We are making more money than ever before and I’m working maybe 25 hours per week. My assistant takes the bulk of our Pinterest client implementation and runs that for us. I have my girls at home with me all day and we are planning to homeschool this coming school year so I know my time is valuable. If you aren’t figuring out your goals and how you want to get there…. if you’re taking on too much… saying yes to too many people then you are going to be overwhelmed friend.
 
So to start making progress you need to stop.

Creating a Pinterest Strategy

Each and every strategy I create for clients is custom but there are certain aspects of each strategy that are the same.

Those aspects have been included in my Pinterest Strategy Guide & Trends Calendar. Grab your copy right now so you can get into a rhythm and are never guessing when it comes to what to do when you publish new content.
