You know those times you feel like you’re not making the progress you “should” be?
It’s totally normal to feel that way.
But it doesn’t have to *stay* that way.
How many times have we heard all the things we “should” be doing when it comes to our business and content? My guess is: an awful lot.
I absolutely LOVED talking to my biz bestie, Ashley Cox from Sprout HR, in this episode. She’s one of those people who always knows *exactly* what the right thing to say is – no matter if you’re feeling down in the dumps, or celebrating a massive win. (#ThatEntrepreneurialLife)
In this episode we cover:
- Why we need to be more gentle with ourselves when it comes to our content and our business
- How to create content in an industry that’s more complex and/or has legal implications
- How to make something that’s “boring” or “dry”, interesting
- Why it’s ok to choose platforms that work best for you for the season you’re in (and leave the rest)
- How Ashley deals with comparisonitis and perfectionism
- And her awesome advice for those who feel overwhelmed by all the content they “should” be creating and also for those who feel like they suck at writing
Plus, she shared THIS epic quote that deserves all the heart-eyed emojis:
Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has courage to lose sight of the shore – André Gide
Get ready to ditch the “shoulds” and have a giggle along the way (because that’s important ;)).
