It didn’t matter which way up I looked at myself re: running my business, I wasn’t getting anywhere.
The practical side was the easy bit. I was finding that the dyslexia I had coped with all my life was tripping me up with my capabilities of learning the Foot Health terminology and creating new organisational skills. My Admin was a mess.
I had brought books on how to run a successful business and even read them page to page and still it wasn’t making sense and there was no progress.
Was I doomed to be a slave to my work working 14 hours a day for only 6 hours earning capacity because I just didn’t know how to implement another way.
Then Belinda launched her Business of helping and supporting fellow Foot Health Practitioners.
Initially I was skeptical, after all I had read the books!
I signed up and with bated breath had my first 1:1
I could see from the notes I had written it was going to be a challenge.
I eagerly wrote down the bullet pointers nodding enthusiastically at the screen of our Zoom meeting.
On reflection it was a huge to do list but you really can’t eat an entire elephant all at once – break it down, make the tasks smaller.
Have a plan, action it and execute it bit by bit.
Just shy of 3 months with Belinda’s support. I am now in control of my business and am working smarter not harder.
Belinda has a wealth of self-employed business knowledge. Belinda’s ability to encourage and point you in an effective work smarter not harder direction is a credit to her as well as her understanding of how the dyslexia mind operates.
Finally I feel in control because I am in control. I believed I could turn my business around and not feel overwhelmed and I have – nothing is impossible with vision.
I just needed a Belinda to show me how.
