The Sassy, Soulful CEO Secret Tip 101-Break free from the chains tying you to your desk.
How to set yourself free while boosting your production and success at the office.
It’s about to get deep, and a little uncomfortable for all of you 16-hour plus office seekers sitting at your desk everyday!
Girl, if there is one thing I have learned that has made the biggest impact on my career, and my life in general it was letting go and breaking free of the chains that were tying me to my desk! Really, the only chains you should be wearing is a classy gold one around your wrist to accessorize your outfit! It is time that you break free as well.
Got your attention? I know, what you’re thinking, Casey what exactly do you mean by letting go of the chains that are tying me to my desk? Last time I checked I did not see anything heavy and shiny lying around in my office?
The deal is, you are a female-small business owner, and with that title comes the “so called” role of if I am not here everything will fall apart. I have to be here for anyone and everyone, staff, customers, management, everyone needs to be able to feel like they can get my help and support when needed or they might think I am not doing my job and I am a horrible business owner!
Yes, those were the words right from my own “perfect lipstick lined” lips for the first 10 years of my career, and since we are being honest here, believing in those words sucked the life right out of my SOUL! I almost let those words overtake everything I had built and everything I had once had pride in lead me to sell and run away as fast as I could!
Thank god, in the midst of this exhaustion before I took any harsh measures I decided to just take a break from my “office” and work and manage remotely for a while. I just needed a break from everyone needing and pulling from me every minute of every single day. I was exhausted!
Since I know the feelings so well, and I am that typical woman “hero of everything” type girl, I would have to bet you have either felt this way or in fact are feeling it now. Sigh and take a deep breath. I know, it is overwhelming. But, guess what? I made it through, and I want you to know you can make it through too!
I am happy to share I have a completely different way I manage and run my businesses, it was through that completely exhausting and dark time I found the light of the true way Bad Ass Business Women were supposed to build, inspire and lead their empires! And for the record, it is nothing more than AMAZING! I am energized, motivated, positive, and empowered to help women build their empires from the Soul Up (hence, the birth of The Sassy, Soulful CEO) and to maybe show you a different way of nurturing and growing that you may have never experienced before.
I run my businesses remotely, sometimes from 5 miles away, sometimes from 500 miles away and once in a while from my office. Am I 100% engaged with my team every day, YES of course, do I meet with customers every day, YES of course! I am 100% more productive, effective, engaged and most of all I am more motivated and energized than I have ever been.
These feelings of freedom are worth a judgmental comment every once in a while. I control my day, my day does not control me.
I nurture myself every morning before I “dive in”, I take breaks throughout the day, I get out and market in my community, I get out and meet new customers, I take a long walk with meditation in the afternoon and I truly believe this is the life we as women, who hold it all up, are supposed to live.
Here’s to your success,
