If you look at why your business may not be growing quickly, you’ll probably realize that ‘people pleasing’ is probably getting in your way.

What you need is to start setting boundaries as a business owner, now more than ever.





So many times I speak to women who say:

“I can’t seem to grow to the next level. Here I am, stuck at six figures, and I’m working MORE than I would ever agree to work for anyone else, while paying myself LESS than I would ever agree for how much I do.”

Can you relate to this? If so, don’t beat yourself up. While this is certainly frustrating, it’s actually very normal at the 6-figure stage of business.

And when we look at why this is happening, it’s because they are doing too much in the business that you should be working on, and not setting boundaries as a

As you reflect over the year that’s coming to a close…ask yourself this question:

Have I taken well-deserved and much-needed time off (as much as I wanted and am worthy of) to enjoy the people I love, the things I love to do, the travel I’ve been meaning to do?

Or, did you find yourself still…

  • doing so much yourself in your business (even though you have people who could do it)
  • working long days, more evenings than you’d like to admit (weekends too)
  • keeping your laptop and phone nearby ‘just in case’
  • unable to walk away for a “spa day” without feeling guilty
  • overwhelmed and heading to burnout

When you started out as an entrepreneur, it was “All hands on deck!” to get your first clients.

You probably didn’t really have fancy “marketing plans with benchmarks” to reach a certain revenue goal. It was probably more an energy related to “urgency to make money asap!”

Now though, you have more clients, you’re making more money, you have bigger expenses and it’s time to get really strategic about reaching bigger revenue goals.

The fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants, pray-it-will-all-work-out approach is (or should be) a thing of the past.

You’ve graduated to being inspired by an idea, envisioning how it can change your clients’ lives, setting major goals, brainstorming solutions, taking big risks and going for it…YES!

Then there’s that other stuff that’s not so fun:

KPI’s, targets, goals, data and numbers. If you’re like most of us, this isn’t really your forte; in fact it can bring up a lot of resistance
