To all you small business owners out there…. oh my goodness, it’s been a hell of a few weeks. Possibly months. Possibly years. It’s definitely been a hell of a few weeks, and we’re all tired aren’t we, really tired? So motivated, but so tired. And we’re not sure if we’re really going to get a break. We’re all working towards this supposed break over Christmas, but you know it’s not really a break is it? If we’re the kind of people who run our own businesses we’re also the kind of people who run our own Christmases! There’s not necessarily much of a break going to be going on.
It’s going to be okay. There’s been a lot happening. Let’s not even go towards politics but there’s been a LOT happening. It’s going to be okay. Do you know how I know it’s going to be okay? Because we’re going to support each other.
That is what we’re all about. We already support each other, and that is going to continue. We’re going to buy each other’s products, we’re going to use each other’s services, we’re going to encourage each other, motivate each other, and we’re going to work together and pull together in 2020.
We’re going to hear a lot about “2020 Vision”, oh my goodness every motivational speaker is just getting so overexcited about the fact they get to use that phrase for next year. It’s a new decade too – as if the calendar ticking over really is significant. I happen to be turning 40 next year…. We can create significance if we want to. Or we can create just another day if we want to. It depends what we want to do, and only we can set those goals.
Nothing is going to change on January 1st unless we want it to. And things can change on January 4th, April 20th, June 16th….. Whenever we are ready. Whatever we want to do.
We are going to stick together. We have all got good ideas, we all have important things to share. I know the imposter syndrome is hitting hard, I don’t know what it is about December, is it the dark, is it having too much to do so we don’t feel we’ve got it under control? It’s hard isn’t it this month? But we’ve got this. And we all have so much to offer.
We’re going to stick together and we’re going to get through this. Sit back, have a drink, have a chocolate, put your feet up, do whatever you find relaxing and give yourself a break. It is all going to be okay. It all already is okay.
Have a very Merry Christmas. Have a calm, confident and focused New Year.
