I’m an Entrepreneur GET ME OUT OF HERE

Posted by Trudy in Blog | 9 comments

  • Whether you are battling marketing and sales
  • Tearing back the layers on your mission and your company values, or
  • Climbing up the mountains of “learnings” that you HAVE to go through as an Entrepreneur and Business Owner!!

Arrrrggggggg…. HELP ME!!

Why are we doing this to ourselves!!!!!

Well…. Sit back and ask yourself…. Then ask yourself again – what is the answer??

Is it that you want to:

  • be your own boss?
  • have your own hours?
  • control your “destiny” (as they say in the Bold and the Beautiful!! Don’t judge me!)
  • earn a big pile of money – and you want to earn it on your terms?
  • help people?
  • feel recoginsed and appreciated for your skills?
  • give back to your community?

The list is endless… and is varied!

There are definitely days when it still feels like I am hacking through my business and life with a machete through thorns!

I “fell” into having my own business.  I offered to help people who needed help to get all the ideas out of their heads and then make them a reality….. it turns out, there are a LOT of ideas that are “floating around” for years, mostly because the ideas don’t have the space to get any direction, or structure on what they are.

The biggest lesson that I have learned in the last few years has been about PLANNING!

Planning, thinking and SEEING the future of what you are wanting to create is not as easy as it sounds.  It can be really challenging to be able to give yourself the time to PLAN, or to be able to work through ALL the things that are in your head to plan for – WHERE DO YOU START?

Well….. sit back, relax, get a cuppa tea (wine!), and brace yourself to START!


Think about what you would like your business and your life to look like in 3 years time.  Write it all down in a list.  Sounds a bit froo-froo – BUT…. DO IT!  And be honest with yourself.


Now…. If you want that to be your life in 3 years time, what would your life and business look like in 1 year to GET to your life in 3 years?  LIST IT!


So, if your life in 1 year looks like THAT, what do you need to get done in the next 30-90 days to work towards that reality in 1 year??

Work with me people…. This could be such a powerful exercise!

Ask yourself these questions to get you started:

  1. How do you want your lifestyle to look?
  2. How do you want to feel?
  3. What do you want to be known for?
  4. What reach do you want to have?
  5. How many are in your team?

Let me know in the comments below if you do this and what the outcome is for you?  Did you find the gaps that you need to fill?  Did you see where you need to concentrate NOW, to reach for your SUCCESS?

      Hi Nicola, thank you for the comment…. so… did you do it? Did you make a goal/vision for 3 years time? I would love to know how you went 😉

    I love this Trudy and have found it so helpful in gaining the clarity I need to move forward in my business. Like Nicola, I have many idea floating in my head but getting them all down is such an important step towards getting stuff done and moving closer to my dream business. I have written down these questions and I am off to write out my answers. Thank you.

    Such a great reminder Trudy to visualise and plan what you want your life and business to look like. I have done some similar work to this recently and you’ve just given me more to think about! Love it.

      Thank you so much for your comment Simone, planning is definitely dear to my heart – and it sounds like it is dear to you too!! 🙂

    Question #2 is the cornerstone of how I make decisions in life, in business and general life. Great advice Trudy!

    • Trudy says:

      YES Caroline! I love to find people that think that this! It is so important to get back to what you want to feel and create for your future 🙂
