ArborVS - The Smarter Way To Work

Brand new me!

Getting back your business feet can be the hardest task to achieve after having to face a few personal challenges. Good fortune and hard work is said to be essential in building a business, even more so when you have been through hell and back.  Well whatever way round it comes, I was fortunate enough to have both good fortune coupled with a decision that I wasn’t going to accept any more rubbish that life was throwing up.

The good fortune is that I have a wonderful family, great friends, excellent colleagues and clients.

The hard work was getting back to good health, keeping the few clients I did have content, and deciding on focussing on one or two key things that I could handle and leave the rest until I was better.

Changing my focus and decision making process was the best choice I could make. Actually, I think in part, I realised I could only cope with certain challenges which meant I had to prioritise what was important to developing both my business and giving support to my clients.

I decided to work on my strengths and outsource my weaknesses and that meant recognising investing in my business by learning new things that I could easily do and outsourcing jobs that I couldn’t! And yes, there is a financial cost involved which has meant scrimping and saving and making sure that I have planned a return to cover those costs.

I am a firm believer that you learn by doing as I never RTM (read the manual), and some things are starting to come together. I don’t know why I it has taken so long to get to this point. The one thing I do believe in, that even though your head tells you that you can do things, it isn’t until your heart actually catches up that it actually happens. I used to think that was just about relationships, but now after all I have been through, I realise it is about life.

So in case you think I am being whimsical there is a book that has been around for a while. It is called “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway” by Susan Jeffers. If you have got it on your bookshelf, read it again, and if not get it. It is a very good read and excellent for the soul! After all, if you are passionate about your business, you need to feed the heart as well as the head!
