Common advice is to work ON your business more than IN your business. Great advice for keeping us from getting caught up in trivial tasks at the sacrifice of moving our businesses forward. Better yet though is to work OUTSIDE your business more than ON it. Found out what I mean by that and how this idea can completely revolutionize your business.

Having been a portrait photographer for so many years and doing 60-70% of my business in the last 3 months, I know this feeling very well. I offer some practical advice on how to avoid and recover from seasonal burnout.

Why is it we are often encouraged to get out of our comfort zones but rarely encouraged to get IN our comfort zones? Well, that’s what I’m encouraging you to do during this holiday season. Get IN your comfort zone. Shouldn’t it be about balance? If you’re going to stretch outside your comfort zone, which you will as a Warrior, then it needs to be balanced with being in your comfort zone. What better time of year than this season of tradition, celebration and comfort food.

As has become an annual tradition here on Creative Warriors, it’s time to think about your theme for 2019. Your theme is different than a goal, intention, or vision. Your theme is the intersection of what you want and what feels like the right time. Your theme is your guiding star for the year ahead. With just a couple of months left in the year, the time is now to think about it so there’s time for your theme to arise without forcing it.

As a prelude to the next episode on Creative Warriors with Jessica Pettitt, I share my thoughts on acceptance and being good enough now. We can often get so critical of ourselves and down about where we’re at in our lives, I find the idea of “good enough now” really refreshing. It makes me think about how freeing acceptance is. It is through acceptance and the peace it offers that you are free to change your circumstances.

For a lot of entrepreneurs, our businesses are much more technologically driven, forcing us to spend more time sitting in front of a computer. The negative effects of sitting are serious, including restricted blood flow and pressure on the spine. As I’ve said many times, Warriors have to take care of themselves because, without us, it’s likely our businesses would not go on. That’s why I have this chat with fitness expert, Jeremy Abramson. To get you moving. To make sure you stay healthy. This guy is a beast. He’s the real deal. Be sure to check out his website and Instagram.

What if I said doing business in the selfie age is a good thing? Well, I think it is. But not in the way you might be thinking. Listen and learn how your customer’s “selfishness” is an opportunity for your business. How customers are empowered today like they never have been before. Why you want to understand this concept to build a business that speaks to your ideal customers, allows them to create the experiences they want, and to know what is most convenient for THEM.
