The kids were just off for Martin Luther King Day and my husband, who is a teacher, had to go in for an institute day. I had a pretty intense day leading 3 new clients as they developed a plan for their business in the Magnify Your Marketing program. As the course finished, I went right into two coaching sessions with some other clients. By the end of the day, I was mentally exhausted. Fortunately, I didn't have to go out in the cold or add time for travel since the class was held in my home and the sessions were done over the phone. When my husband came home, my oldest son, who was up in his room all day, said "I'm so sorry you had to work all day dad." I looked at him and said, "Really? What about me? Aren't you sorry I had to work too?" He looked very surprised and said "No mom. You were having fun hanging out with your friends. I heard you laughing all day." I look at him puzzled and annoyed. Feeling bad, he came behind me and massaged my neck. Then he said, "I'm sorry you had a rough day too mom."
I find myself frequently getting annoyed at the people close to me who appear to think I do nothing all day. As I talk to other entrepreneurs, I realize I'm not the only one who experiences this. My default is to be triggered and to think they don't realize I have responsibilities like others who work a job. As I reflect on the interaction with my son, though, I think I'm finally starting to get it.
Wondering what I do with my clients when I help them build a plan. Check out this new video to learn more. The next class is starting in March/April and there is currently a class going on that you could hop into if you didn't want to wait. Email me to talk about getting started.
