How To Pursue Entrepreneurship And Build A Life That You Love
Have you just started on your entrepreneurship journey and are looking for inputs on creating a life that you love beyond your business? Perhaps you are a long-term entrepreneur with a couple of successful businesses under your belt looking to take some time out for yourself while working on your next big idea. No matter where you are on your entrepreneurship journey, seasoned entrepreneur and founder of UMM Skincare - Anisha Vinjamuri - shares her tips below on prioritising oneself + creating a balanced lifestyle while pursuing entrepreneurship.
MOVE YOUR BODY
Pick an exercise of your choice and let the endorphins kick in each day.
WATCH YOUR MINDSET
Entrepreneurship is a journey, not a destination, so be sure to celebrate the small wins and keep an open mind to help you overcome setbacks. Most importantly, remember to enjoy the experience.
DO WHAT YOU LOVE
Schedule free time in your calendar to pursue a hobby or just to disconnect from the daily grind. This will give you a chance to look at the bigger picture + help you come back stronger.
Set aside some time each week to plan ahead + meal prep to ensure that your food and drink intake meets the high output lifestyle that is often synonymous with entrepreneurship.
Schedule in a fixed time every day to go to bed and make sure you stick to it as often as possible.
BE NICE TO YOURSELF
It is important to look at your entrepreneurship journey as a lesson in loving yourself. While it is important to push yourself to make the most of your talents and skill set, make sure you are always working from a place of self-love + self-care.
As an entrepreneur, it can be easy to want to involve yourself into every aspect of your business but sometimes it’s best to work on that which you can control and delegate the rest to someone else or come back to it another time!
FIND BALANCE, BUT IN YOUR OWN WAY
There is no one definition of balance; as entrepreneurs, everyone’s journey is different and you will find it best to focus on creating a routine that best serves your lifestyle instead.
FIND YOUR TRIBE
As an entrepreneur, the journey can occasionally get very lonely. Work on cultivating a community of like-minded individuals that you can learn from and who will help you grow. Don’t forget to make time for your family + friends!
ASK FOR HELP
As human beings, we are often taught that to ask for help is a sign of defeat, but asking for help might just enable you to find the solution that you were looking for. At the very least, you’ll end up making a friend!
