Has your zeal for your booklet biz been zapped? No worries! It happens to everyone in business. Sometimes it’s stress outside your business that saps your energy. If that’s the case, dealing with the issue and resolving it will help to revitalize you.
Other times it’s business burnout that bites you in the behind. You’ve been going at it non-stop – writing booklets, talking with quantity buyers, making sales – and while you’re happy with the money you’re bored with the process.
Here are a few ways to spiff things up so you can get your mojo back.
1) Create something new. It doesn’t have to be another booklet. Maybe you’ll decide to create a video or cd, or maybe you’ll create a new service to offer such as teaching a class or offering to speak. Just taking part of your business in a new direction will give you something new to focus on and give you some motivation.
2) Read about what other entrepreneurs are doing with their business. It doesn’t matter which business they are in. Discovering how successful others are because they towed the line will create excitement for you and help you get going again.
3) Take a break. If you’ve been going at it day in and day out, nonstop without a break or a vacation it’s time for you to take a few days off. Your business won’t suffer a bit. In fact, it will thrive because of it. Often we are so excited when we begin our booklet adventure that we soon get buried in all the stuff we need to do, and before we know it we’re burned out. It sneaks up on us and we don’t see it coming. Take a little time out for yourself and your family every now and then. After all, isn’t that why you started your booklet business in the first place?
4) Get some help. Burnout can happen quickly if you’re trying to do everything yourself. There comes a point when every entrepreneur needs to get some help in order for the business to grow. If you’re at the point where you’re feeling overwhelmed because there is so much to do, take a look at what needs to be done and see what you can outsource. This will take some of the burden off you and help make your booklet adventure an enjoyable one again.
