Let's switch gears briefly and discuss the COVID-19 pandemic. What adjustments have you made in your life and business since the pandemic started? Self-care is definitely one that comes to mind. The pandemic has us all re-thinking how we do things, how we live life and how we go about our goals and dreams. Implementing self-care, for me, where there wasn't any, made a huge difference and impact. I was so used to being on the move night and day and taking care of others that I forgot about me. So during the course of this pandemic, I have learned to place myself in park and ensure that I give myself a little love, too.
What advice would you give to entrepreneurs struggling to balance their life and business? I would say to pace yourself. As the saying goes, Rome was not built in a day. The amount of work you overwhelm and overload yourself with does not change the winning result at the end. The victory is still yours, but there's no sense in exhausting yourself before you make it to the finish line to where you can't enjoy what you've prayed and worked so hard to build. Slow down!
