Seeking financial independence? Want to be your own boss? Though the entrepreneurial lifestyle can be tough, especially for empaths, it is worth it for many of us.
For some, it’s a calling. And for others, it is simply the way to go to live for that lifestyle of freedom and flexibility in their career.
Being an entrepreneur can often require longer hours than the typical 40-60 hour work week. However, the benefit of building a business is that you are in charge of deciding when you want to work.
In some cases, who you want to work with. Instead of the monotonous 9-5 structure, you're able to have more independence and freedom.
At the same time, that independence and freedom ceases when there are no boundaries established for yourself. Growing up in an entrepreneurial family, I’ve observed and experienced what that could be like.
I saw the good, bad and ugly side of entrepreneurship. I lived and breathed it from birth!
Everyone I knew was self-employed. My parents, uncles, aunts, and family friends all ran their own restaurants, delivery businesses, consulting companies, auto shops, and the list goes on.
Entrepreneurship certainly had its perks. But it wasn’t a day at the beach either.
For empaths, the highs and lows can really take a toll on our emotions too. Empath or not, the lifestyle may not be for everyone.
Growing up in an entrepreneurial family, I remember eating dinner as late as 9:30pm. I also remember waking up at 5:00am before school started so my mom could fit in errands enroute to school. All I ever observed was my parents and relatives working 7 days a week, including every holiday, birthday, and so forth.
At some point over the years, I ran my online blog biz as a side hustle, part-time, and full-time. Throughout the journey, I learned a lot of things the hard way...despite having observed some “bad examples” growing up.
So whether you are full fledged self-employed or thinking about starting a biz, here are some tips that to help you along the way to financial freedom.
Set energetic boundaries for yourself.
There is a popular saying that the way to make more money is to solve bigger problems. Or more problems. But to solve bigger and or more problems, you need to have the energy to do so. Without energetic boundaries, well, good luck running on an empty tank of gas.
What exactly are energetic boundaries? We aren’t talking just about setting aside time for energetic self-care. Though that’s important too, especially when it comes to raising your vibrational frequency.
We are talking about knowing when to say “no” when it’s just not aligned to where you want to go in life. At the same time, it’s also saying “no” to people who tend you leave you emotionally depleted...energy vampires!
Already good at sayin’ no?
Energy work is key to manifesting faster breakthroughs. Many entrepreneurs think that working harder yields faster results. We all want to work smarter, not harder, but sometimes it’s hard to figure out how to do so.
Well you probably heard me say time and time again that in order to manifest faster breakthroughs, it takes small but consistent steps in raise your vibrations. When we raise our vibrations to align with the frequency of where we want to be in life, that allows us to attract more opportunities accordingly.
For instance, studies have shown that even 17 seconds of focusing your attention on something positive can make a huge impact on your thought patterns. When you hold a positive thought, you activate the vibration of that thought within you. Immediately the Law of Attraction begins to respond to that activation.
The longer you keep your attention focused on something, the easier it becomes for you to continue to focus upon it. This is because you are attracting, through the Law of Attraction, other thoughts or vibrations that are the essence of the thought you began with.
Within 17 seconds of focusing on something, a matching vibration becomes activated.
And now, as that focus becomes stronger and the vibration becomes clearer, the Law of Attraction will bring to you more thoughts that match. At this point, the vibration will not have much attraction power. But if you maintain your focus longer, the power of the vibration will become further reaching.
And if you manage to stay purely focused upon any thought for as little as 68 seconds, the vibration is powerful enough that its manifestation begins.
