Evidence lists for celebrating winsOne of the most important things that successful people do, and particularly those who run a business, is to keep a mindful eye on where they have come from and where they intend to go.

The turn of the New Year is a great opportunity to set resolutions and new goals, but many times, one of the most overlooked aspects of doing so is in looking at what you achieved. In fact, you might feel that you weren’t successful at achieving your resolutions until you sit down and spend the time to put together an evidence list.

Hiring Virtual Assistants As a freelance writer, my business initially started off being able to provide virtual assistant services and freelance writing content to other people. However, as my business grew quickly over the course of the past five years, I realized that I simply could not do everything on my own anymore, thus my introduction to the world of hiring virtual assistants to help me.

Since that time, I’ve trained and assisted hundreds of wannabe virtual assistants in launching their own careers. I have even helped provide matchmaking services to busy entrepreneurs who need help outsourcing some tasks.

Negative Feedback Management

No one wants to hear negative feedback. Trust me, I’m the last person who wants to get feedback from my clients if they aren’t happy about something. However, it’s much easier to be open to receiving criticism when you know that you are not being attacked personally.

Now it’s a whole different ball game altogether if a client has a track record of saying nasty comments to you, many of which are not founded in reality – and trust me, I’ve been there with those types of clients too. That’s a great opportunity to cut and run and avoid interacting with the client ever again.

Burnout is one of the most explosive things that can happen in your business and it can bring things to a sudden and screeching halt, as you watch your income dwindle to zero when you find yourself suddenly and unexplainably unable to do anything. Burnout is a serious conundrum in the online entrepreneur community today because we are constantly bombarded with advertisements promising the benefits of hustling 24/7, never giving up, taking on more and more projects etc. etc. etc. I have fallen victim to near burnout several times and have had to walk myself back from the edge of the cliff of feeling like I didn’t even want to be in business anymore.

Whew, we’ve survived another wedding season! Now there’s a small window to recharge and safely scroll through our Facebook and Instagram feeds where apples and pumpkins, autumn leaves and warm blankets replace white gowns and sparkly rings. Until the holidays arrive and the next wave of engagement announcements come sure as sugar cookies and watching Elf.

That’s not coming from bitterness, I promise. Like many of my fellow ladies, I’m in a happy, healthy relationship and we’ve talked about marriage as much as he’s diced onions for me. In other words,

We’ve all heard the saying “failure isn’t an option”, right? Okay, now what if I told you that saying is complete bullshit? You’ve probably been hearing that your whole life much like I have. Chances are if you’re anything like me you got in trouble every time you failed at something. Whether it was poor grades in school or having a meltdown in public (hello, childhood anxiety) you were probably punished in some way.
