Ep 59. Permission to give yourself permission

The Summer Shorts Series

Hey BRILLIANT mamas! 
Today’s episode is short and sweet, but could change the rest of your year. We’re talking real quick about giving yourself permission to give yourself permission. Because we’re the ones in charge of giving out the permission slips! 

"It's a mindset shift! I am in charge of giving permissions! I can give myself permission to give myself permission."

Discussed in this Episode...

As we head into this season of transition, with kids going back school this month, there can be a lot of pressure on us as Mompreneurs! There’s pressure to have everything perfect, and to get things done not just for our families, but also our business. For many of us as entrepreneurs, our fall season is oftentimes our largest sales and income season. Of course, we want to capitalize on that, so there’s pressure to get new things out, to update our funnels, and to show up more on social media. 

But then along with doing all this in our business, we have to get the kids ready for school, get them adjusted to a routine, and get ourselves adjusted to a new routine. 

With all of that coming up, I just want to take a moment to remind you that YOU are in charge of giving permission to whatever you need. I sometimes hear myself and my clients saying, “I just wish I could slow down a minute”. Well guess what, you can! 

  • You can give yourself permission to not launch that course until the kids are back in school. 
  • You can give yourself permission to take an extra day off or to not show up on social media today. 
  • You can give yourself permission to put an out of office on your inbox for the afternoon, so that you can go do the back to school shopping
  • You can take time to do things that will give you less pressure in the upcoming weeks. 

It’s a mindset shift; “I am in charge of giving permissions. I can give myself permission, to give myself permission.” Give yourself the permission to slow down, to press pause, to get excited, to adjust to transitions, to focus more on family, to set a different deadline, whatever that is that you need.

That’s why we’re in business in the first place! So that we are in control of ourselves and our schedules. Don’t forget that, and embrace it, and use it to your advantage this week!
