I work with frustrated and stuck-in-a-rut CBOs and show them their unique formula to clear, confident success.
I know how hard this can be because I was in the exact same place.
I’m a high achiever. I have a degree in Physiology and then I went back to study Optometry and Vision Sciences. I have incredibly high standards for myself. I work damn hard, and challenge myself to excel. And I achieved my goals and then some.
When it was time to set up my own business I put the same pressure on myself. With a toddler and another baby on the way I leapt head first, confident that I had everything I needed to build a successful clinician business.
But it didn’t work out like that. I failed. I felt I was an ineffectual leader. I didn’t plan for success, I didn’t even plan out my day! It was overwhelm and fire-fighting from day 1. Stress, self-doubt and anxiety lead to sleep deprivation and feelings of failure. I knew my team were talking about me behind my back. I knew my cashflow and financial planning was on its knees.
