self empowerI’ve spent the last 9 years building the company by empowering myself.  I’ve worked hard and smart, and I’ve put in the hours to grow the company to a level that’s, so far, very close to where I want it to be.  Now it’s time to take time for myself.  It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the day to day running of the business, so I’ve decided it’s time to unload more administrative tasks to my Virtual Assistant and Project Manager and take some time out for myself.  So this summer, I went back to “the greatest game ever played”, golf.  I joined a ladies Wednesday morning golf league at a local course.  I paid up front for the entire year, on purpose, so that I’m committed.  Throughout the summer, I went out to the course every Wednesday morning.  It took a little getting used to – giving myself permission to get out of the office on a weekday morning to enjoy fresh air and camaraderie.  Toward the end of the season, I found it all very self empowering!  I’m in control!  My business works for me by providing for my needs and I’m living the life I want – balance, low stress and meaningful, fulfilling days doing what I love.

Are you living a balanced life?  Do you need to unload?  Share your journey with me about personal empowerment by posting a comment.
