How Entrepreneur Burnout Begins

Do you find yourself working LONG hours for little to no pay?

You keep giving and giving—your time, your energy, your resources—it never seems to end! But you have nothing to show for it.

You’re mentally exhausted, and it’s becoming increasingly harder to focus. And the excitement you had when you first started your business is nowhere to be found. 

If you’re feeling empty and lacking the motivation you used to have for your business, you may be experiencing entrepreneur burnout.

I know that sounds serious, but it’s something most entrepreneurs deal with at one point or another. And don’t worry—I’m here to help you get into a better state of mind with some of my most effective tips on preventing (or reversing…) entrepreneurial burnout.

The reason I’m sharing this with you is because I’ve been there myself.

When I first started my business, I became obsessed. Obsessed with my business… and obsessed with success. 

My perfectionist tendencies weren’t doing me any favors here, either. Everything HAD to be perfect, no matter the cost to my mental health. 

And because of fear, I wasn’t even paying myself in those early days. I was so scared that I wouldn’t be able to afford it. Talk about backwards thinking, right?

On top of that, I was constantly comparing myself to others. And we all know how that goes…. 

This led me to start feeling really bad about myself. No matter how great my business was doing, someone else was always doing something bigger and better. So instead of investing my energy into my own business, I became hyper-focused on everyone else’s business. 

The comparison trap was suffocating. And my mental health suffered.

But I just kept going and going—hardly ever coming up for air. I’m sure you know the feeling.

You may be operating in burnout mode without even realizing it, just like I was. Entrepreneurial burnout is something that so many of us deal with—but we don’t talk about it. 

I want to know if you’ve ever felt like this before, or even if you’re feeling it right now! Let me know with a thumbs up, or leave me a comment below.

And you know what? It took me a long time to discover that it doesn’t have to be this way. So hopefully I can save you some time by sharing what I’ve learned along the way!

Overcoming Entrepreneur Burnout

To get rid of entrepreneur burnout, I realized I needed to do a complete overhaul of the way I approached my business. Looking back now, I can see clearly that I mostly needed to change the way I was thinking about my business. It really is all about your mindset!

Want to try implementing some of the same changes I made?

Here are 4 tips that will help you conquer entrepreneurial burnout and regain your time, your sanity, and your freedom:

1. Redefine success on your own terms.

Figure out what makes you tick. For me, I feel most successful when I’m helping women make more money while working less. My goal is to build luxury brands that effortlessly communicate my clients’ high-end value (so they don’t have to). When I’m doing well at what I’m passionate about, it doesn’t matter to me what on earth any other business is doing. I’m so thankful that I’m no longer playing the comparison game!

2. Get rid of things in your life and business that aren’t working.

Yes, I’m talking about social media…. It’s such an energy trap! And that energy will serve you better when it’s spent on your own business. Last year, I deleted my Facebook account and took Instagram off of my phone. And I’ve been happier and much more productive ever since. In fact, I nearly tripled my income after I made this simple change. Check out my video, Work from Home Productivity Tips for Entrepreneurs, for more on this story.

3. Work smarter, not harder.

To be a successful entrepreneur, you really have to nail this mindset. That means you’ll have to start letting go of control and delegating more. Yes—even the perfectionists like you and me! Working smarter—not harder—means focusing on high-impact activities. It means decluttering, managing your surroundings, and managing your time. I know, it’s much easier said than done. But the more you practice, the more natural it becomes.

4. Believe that you deserve to have financial freedom.

So many women I talk to feel guilty about making money or asking for more. I want to tell you: You deserve more. I want to help you feel great about earning lots of money. You deserve to be compensated (really well) for sharing your unique talents and abilities with the world.

All of these mindset changes helped me create a business that truly serves me, not the other way around. I’m even able to comfortably take 3 months off from running my business to go on maternity leave (which, by the time you’re watching this, is what I’ll be doing). Back in the early days, I never would have dreamed that would be possible!

So now you know how to overcome entrepreneurship burnout and claim that kind of freedom for yourself, too.
