This is why you’re so tired

Why do we often end up building businesses that exhaust rather than exhilarate us?

Let me take you back to the end of 2022, a time when I was on the brink of giving up.

I was utterly spent, not just physically but emotionally too.

Instead of seeking another business guru, I turned to a therapist.

A startling truth emerged: I was building a business for others, not for myself.

Was I chasing admiration or approval from those I revered?

The more I delved in, the clearer it became that my business model was a facade.

I was caught in a cycle of imitating success models that weren’t truly mine.

Isn’t it strange how we often lose ourselves in the pursuit of validation?

Realisation dawned: the key to rejuvenation lay in authenticity, not productivity.

I began reshaping my business, this time moulding it to my genuine passions and values.

The transformation was liberating, like shedding a cumbersome disguise.

Isn’t it time to ask if your business truly reflects who you are?

Building a business you love starts with being honest about what you want.
