PREVENTING ENTREPRENEURIAL BURNOUT

September 21, 2015
With an exciting travel schedule in the coming months for The Babes it is now time for us to focus and get serious on our physical health and wellbeing. We speak about getting serious with our business commitments and getting serious about our emotional and personal limitations as this is the foundation of success. Another fundamental for personal and business success is optimum physical health, well being and balance. These are often overlooked and ignored by entrepreneurs. Nic has supported and rehabilitated exhausted and burnt out entrepreneurs in her clinical practice for 13 years. Ali herself has been to that point of burn out which is how our friendship began.
When we commit with the same vigour and enthusiasm to our health as we do to our financial and personal success we create incredible outcomes for ourselves. Maintaining a lifestyle that is supportive and nourishing of our work and family life is an important element in creating sustainability and longevity for our businesses.
You have heard us speak before about your business being an extension of you. What you feel and look like is also an important quality of your business success. With every interaction and new opportunity comes meeting new people. What is their experience of meeting you. Are you exhausted, negative and struggling to maintain your life/work balance. Or are you empowered and full of energy, does your body and mind appear healthy, clear and sharp?  Regardless of the industry you represent your appearance of optimum health, balance and clarity of mind is a very attractive quality to those around you whom you want to do business with. Whether you are attracting new customers, investors, partnerships or building relationships if your interaction is balanced and energetic, if you are optimistic and healthy it reflects your business in a very positive light.
We know this first hand as our businesses and travel schedule extend to new heights of exposure and opportunity. When we have looked at the 12 months ahead instead of getting overwhelmed about the travel, the jet lag and the level of performance we have chosen to undertake we have chosen to get straight into action. We no longer react, instead we have strategised and taken responsibility for the travel with increasing our exercise, our sleep, our hydration, our Puraforce Remedies Wellness Protocol and our nutrition. The first step was to buy a Magic Bullet each and we have now committed to two green smoothies every day, 2-3 litres of water, detox tea and raw food snacks. Every two hours along with reciting our Entrepreneurial Babes “Gratitude for Enough” affirmation we now take our supplements which include vitamin C, magnesium, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. This health and wellness plan we have created together optimising on the knowledge in our previous careers/businesses in the health and wellness and fitness industries.
Nic had a light bulb moment whe she was travelling previously this year. She spoke at a conference in Cairns and on the plane on the way home she was tapped on the shoulder by a man who had his phone open to her business Facebook page. He asked if she was Nicole Cunningham and then thanked her for her Baby Colic Drops which had greatly assisted his young son. It was at that moment that she realised her profile was larger than she realised and that you are ALWAYS on show representing your business. Now this doesn’t mean that we don’t travel in comfort but we are very aware of always maintaining a healthy lifestyle so that we continue to feel and look like the success of our business.
Our liquid nutrition, Puraforce Remedies and lifestyle choices are the foundation to the success that we will create for ourselves over the coming months. In what way do you need to get serious and create better health for yourself? Are your foundations wobbly as you are reaching stages of burnout and fatigue in your business life? Our “Grow with the Babes” subscription model offers business women and entrepreneurs the opportunity to create change in their health, balance, wellness and strategy/attitude they have for their business.
