Supporting local YEG businesses is something I love to promote and to do at the best of times. When times are more challenging it’s even that much more important to help them survive and go on to thrive. It’s not an easy ride in business at times, that’s for sure, but when helping them helps you as a business owner too it’s worth it even that much more!
As an Executive and Life Coach with my company, Entrepreneurial Freedom, I am passionate about helping business owners create the change they need to achieve the success they truly want in their business and in their life. That often means taking steps to return more energy, focus, and time to them so they can make better choices with how to approach every day.
For some that means making health and self care a priority.
For others it means shifting more focus to family, friends, and the relationships that matter most.
For others yet that means returning focus in their business to the roles they love and where they make the greatest contribution to the success of their business.
In most instances business owners are usually wearing far too many hats. They usually need to let go of certain roles and tasks that they have held onto out of necessity, out of habit, or out of fear of letting it go. The unfortunate result in doing so, whatever the reason, has been overwork, overwhelm, stress, and burnout. Then, the ultimate result from that has been all of the above three falling off the rails and negatively impacting business success and life success.
It’s a never ending, unsustainable spiral downwards that will end up in a crash you don’t want to experience one day.
That’s why today I want to highlight some of the key local YEG businesses I love to work with. Ones I would highly recommend to support you in removing some of those hats so that you can achieve the goals and success you want in business AND free up time, energy, and focus that you can redirect to your life as you see fit.
It’s not always an easy process to identify what roles you ought to consider letting go of. It can be an even harder one to actually do it in a way that is seamless and not additionally overwhelming to you. If you feel you need help to visualize your needs for change, to plan them out, and then carry them out then please contact me. That is a huge part of the support I offer as your Executive and Life Coach.
