As a young entrepreneur, every new client, request and invitation can feel like a golden ticket. It can be all to easy to jump at every opportunity that comes your way with open hands. But at what point are you losing focus on the things you really want to achieve?
There is a word that really successful people are using all the time - 'NO' Sometimes, you have to say 'no' in order to achieve what you want. It sounds counter-intuitive, but it's all about priorities. Get over the FOMO and put yourself first when it comes to your business and life. Feel like that client isn't the right fit for you? Politely decline to take them on and save yourself the lost hours of headache and stress. Fancy a bit of down time over the weekend rather than going to a friend's party? Prioritise yourself and offer to take her out for lunch another time.
It's difficult to do - especially if you are a people pleaser, but saying no to prioritise yourself and your business is critical to designing the life and business that you truly want.
