What Gets in The Way of Putting Yourself First?

That's the question we asked ourselves this afternoon at the Women in Business webinar, which was hosted by BIPC Devon and facilitated by Abigail Milne - thank you for your support, Abi.

Amongst the many boulders that stop us in our tracks, we ourselves can - and do - get in the way of putting ourselves first in our businesses. Here are a few we discussed :

❌ when your passion for work becomes an obsession

❌ putting yourself last

❌ what you believe to be true

❌ comparing yourself with authors of social media posts

💡 So, what can we do about it? Here are some practical steps we can take :

✔ Set boundaries that protect your energy and wellbeing

✔ Start saying 'no' or 'not yet'

✔ Let go of 'shoulds' - guilt trips disguised as obligations

✔ Be YOURSELF and show up in all your unique humanness

It was a great discussion and I look forward to returning next month to deliver two more webinars in this series.

Meanwhile, why not think about your own 'non-negotiables' - what are the 'must haves' for you so you're able to thrive in your business? Why not share them here - I'd love to know what it is you value 🤔
