“Too many opportunities wear you down. Saying no often means saying yes to yourself & business.”
Does your head spin with all that’s happening in entrepreneurship these days? Social media, blogs and articles, forums and workshops? Do all the opportunities to learn, to grow, to improve yourself leave you feeling . . . well, overwhelmed?
Young, keen entrepreneurs — those sponges who take it all in and seize every advantage — are becoming exhausted. As a coach, I’m noticing a trend among the new and brilliant entrepreneurs: their enthusiasm to learn and be involved is wearing them down both physically and mentally.
When I started out 30+ years ago, I too was exhausted. There were far fewer opportunities then, and saying no was out of the question. Now I know how to be discerning in business — and why. My body lets me know that a relaxing evening at home means a more productive day tomorrow.
