Building a brand takes time. If you let yourself get impatient and flip your shit because you’re not seeing the results you want when you want, it’s going to be a long road ahead.
For the sake of yourself and your brand, try to learn how to chill out.
Here are a few things that may help…
- Have a budget and stick to it; nothing causes a freak out as much as dwindling funds
- Learn to breathe. I know this sounds hokey but I honestly found that the act of taking several controlled deep breaths when things are getting me worried, makes a huge difference in my sanity and health
- Remember why you started your business and focus on the the goal; write down actionable steps you can take to get you closer to the results you want, rather than getting upset because you haven’t seen them yet.
- Close your computer and think about all the things you’ve accomplished so far- both the big things (like launching the brand) and the little things (like your growing reach on social media), It’s easy to forget how much you’ve accomplished when you’re focusing so much on all that you still have to do.
