Are you a quitter? I am.
As a small business owner it can be hard to quit things,
including jobs that are dragging us down;
BUT sometimes quitting or saying “NO”
to work that’s no longer moving you forward
is essential if you’re going to truly thrive and grow your business.
Click below to watch my video “Should You Quit In Order To Grow Your Business”.
I share how I finally became a quitter,
and how I started my home-based floral design business,
Floral Artistry, over 15 years ago!
Thanks for taking a few minutes to watch!
THE MORAL OF THE STORY…
We have to evaluate what’s working vs. what’s no longer working
if we’re going to actually enjoy the work we’re doing every day.
Because, what’s the point of running your own business if it doesn’t bring you joy and profitability and pride?
We can’t let ourselves down because we got too busy saying Yes to EVERYTHING that we forget to say a big, fat, HECK YES to our own needs and wants and hopes and dreams.
Quitting or saying “No” to make room for something better (something that hasn’t actually materialized yet; something we’re hoping is out there, but we can’t really be sure) takes bravery;
it may get easier to do with time and confidence, but turning down a sale is not always easy for people who are in business to sell.
Think of it like this: Gardeners sometimes have to deadhead a few blooms for the sake of the overall health and prosperity of a plant.
If you want your business to grow, you must cultivate it, like a gardener.
If there’s something bogging you down that you know you need to stop, be brave. Quit.
If you’d rather be a “joiner” than a “quitter” check out my online courses exclusively for florists! (Including 3 free courses) HERE.
Remember: 10% of course sales for the month of April will be donated to the Vermont Foodbank! If you’ve been on the fence about trying out a course, this could be the perfect time. So far more than 500 meals will be donated to hungry families.
