(If you are curious as to Why?, tune into Ep. 19, where I share my raw and uncut journey to finding clarity).
Content Starts: 1 min 58 sec.
Here’s the Power Seat’s challenge:
“10 years ago I quit my job and started a company.
Thinking “this will be a nice hobby, part time so I can spend time with kids”….low and behold, 10 years later my company is extremely successful and grown way beyond what I had ever thought it would be.
Taking way more of my time and impacting some of my other values.
Do I sell my company, because of the values conflict?
Do I give everything and give the company all of me??
Do I truncate myself from the company – in the past I have felt like not doing a great job at anything!
I feel a lot of guilt, around asking my husband and family for what I need from them so I can do what I need for my company.
I’m right in it right now, trying to figure out where to go.
I feel huge guilt, both at work and home.
My team is putting in huge hours every day. I do half the hours because I am trying to do all the other things.
Like at Christmas break, family ski holiday, working in hotel 8-10 hours/day asking “how was your day, sorry I wasn’t there.”
Guilt is big.
I feel like I want to see where my company can go.
But, my kids are teens and it’s a trying time. One of my kids was making choices that were putting her in danger, and I felt so guilty.
HOW DO I:
How do I make the choice I have to make? To pick a focus and sacrifice one for the other."
Tune into the Episode 2, to hear how other women have navigated similar experiences, from which we all get to choose what resonates and what we want to be intentional about doing differently moving forward.
Your Power Outlet Podcast format is easy to replicate in your own world.
