Every now and then you need a little wake-up call with your relationship with your business. Today I’m sharing 6 Tips to help you fall back in love with your business. Whether you are just starting out on your journey or have been as business as long as I have, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the daily grind and not remember if you love what you do.
Let’s talk about reconnecting…
Let me ask you, why do you do what you do?
This is one of the questions I ask my clients, talk to my community and speak about. It’s also a question I ask myself. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, it makes me think about being in love with my business. As Simon Sinek say’s…

My dear friend and colleague Emily Petroff and I thought it would be a great topic for our Blab show this week. We discussed 6 specific tips to consider and ask yourself about your relationship with your business.
Listen to our conversation!
6 Tips to Fall in Love with your business:
What’s your commitment to working hard and growing, even when it get’s rough? Let’s face it, when the honeymoon is over and the excitement dimmed, you may need to add some spark or rejuvenate your relationship. Be very clear about why you do what you do. Add it to your purpose, mission and vision and reconnect to it.
Are you investing in your business? Attending conferences, or taking courses? What about being in a mastermind or have an accountability buddy. These are a few ways to invest in your business. AND… remember to find healthy ways to invest in yourself. I schedule a break at least every 90 days.
3. Set Intentions.
Setting and practicing intentions will help you have a healthy and positive mindset for your business. Ask yourself, where do you want to be? What do you want to have? Then set the intention to achieving them.
Just like in your personal relationships you have to have great communication skills in your business. Whether it’s with your partners, affiliates, associates and especially your clients, clear communications are imperative.
The other area where communications are extremely important is with yourself. Have you looked at your purpose, mission and vision statement lately? Checking in or possibly editing them as you evolve are a good thing to do from time to time.
Remember, all work and no play….? There were times in one of my business that I got lost in the stress (during the economic recession) of running my business. Quite frankly, those few years were a blur. All I did was work. I’ve learned from that experience! Now I celebrate big and little wins. Celebrating the little wins is SO important!
Being an entrepreneur and small business owner isn’t for the faint of heart. Although I get it, it’s in our blood. I wake every day and count my blessings. Literally, I remind myself of all I have to be grateful for when I wake up. It’s a fresh and positive way to start the day! Tell your family, colleagues and clients “thank you”. Staying grateful will help remind you of all you have.

I hope these tips inspire you to evaluate your relationship with your business. I think of it as any other, one that I have to keep an open communication with and nurture if I want it to be healthy!
