I am 30 years old former model entrepreneur. I have been having my business for 1,5 now. I do everything myself and I work usually from 12 till 16 hours a day every day with no weekends.All my time I invest in my business and since I get more cliends I get more work. I tried to hire people but they don't do the job as well as I do myself and I loose the client. I tried to teach and motivate them but it seems like you gotta be likable and have a talent to be successful in it, so I decided to do stuff myself. For this 1.5 years of hard work I started to feel like I am exhautsed and turning into machine and no massages or gyms help me to get energy and inspirartion back. I started to make money but I feel apathy for pretty much everything. How do you guys keep your motivation high and stay focused? Mayve I just need to find the same minded partner and make business with someone who will motivate me?If so, if there is any web resurses where I can find someone brainy and business driven? Thank you so much in advance. Diana
I have found that working with a virtual assistant has allowed me to use my time on the talents that come naturally and easily to me as well as earn money. With a VA, I can hand over the tasks that she can do more efficiently than I can. I believe that delegation is a very powerful productivity tool and not a shortcoming. I have written this column to help people know when and how to delegate duties: http://tinyurl.com/mwqajtx
Take care of yourself!
