Being a successful woman in business can be a highly rewarding experience. But most of us also face regular challenges too. Especially if you strive for both business success and a balanced meaningful life–one where you earn good money doing what you love, have plenty of time off to enjoy life. I’ve yet to meet a successful woman who has never experienced stress, overwhelm, doubt, health, or family issues. Left unchecked these will sabotage your health, happiness, prosperity, and impact.
In 2003, I gave up a successful career in the investment industry to do something more meaningful. Since then I’ve navigated my way through the many ups and downs of growing a sustainable business that makes a difference in the world.
It’s been an incredibly rewarding experience with many successes to celebrate including building a good reputation as well-being specialist, compassionate marketing coach, business mentor, speaker, trainer, author of two best-selling books, running business networks, a podcast, ‘business -for-good’ conference and online communities. But, I’ve had challenging times too including taking on too much work, not having enough clients, making costly mistakes, health issues, and struggling to maintain a good work/life balance.
There have been times I’ve been tempted to give up, but I’m so glad I kept going–I’ve helped thousands of people improve their lives, grow profitable businesses, and enjoy a deeper sense of meaning. I love what I do and I’m so grateful to enjoy a flexible business that supports the life I want and improves the lives of others. Especially as I now transition into a slower pace of life as a woman in my fifties.
My top three secrets to business success are to adopt an ‘I can do it’ attitude, focus on what matters, and sign up to the ongoing support of a great coach or mentor. Without any one of these three critical components, I wouldn’t be enjoying the life and business I do today.
