Building a startup is no easy feat. It’s often long hours, lots of big decisions and a whole bunch of personal, emotional and financial stress – on you and on your team. But, taking care of yourself (and your team) is essential to your company’s success. Burn out won’t get you where you need to go.
How do you keep yourself energized and excited when the going gets tough? Sometimes it means pausing, stepping away, reminding yourself about your why and yes, even celebrating.
So, here are three things you can do on Take Action Tuesday to take care of yourself:
Celebrate your wins
This is a regular part of our Track 1 and Track 2 cohort training programs, because celebrating helps us stay motivated to keep pushing. As entrepreneurs, we often gloss over the little wins on our way to the big wins. But, pausing to pat ourselves on the back is good for morale. And cheering each mile of the marathon breaks up what can sometimes feel like an endless slog to the finish line.
Take a breather
Step away from the startup. Just for a little bit. Go for a run. Take a bike ride. Make it a weekend getaway. Just hit pause. This much-needed break can give you the space you need for a better perspective, the answer to a problem, or the room to make an important decision.
Join us for Client Appreciation Day
That’s right, we have a day specifically set aside for you to come in and enjoy a little pampering on us. Our latest Track 1 cohort just completed the first phase of our program. So, come help them celebrate this big win; join us Tuesday, June 5th 11:30am – 1pm for lunch and a chance to meet other Chandler Innovations clients and other community members! Be sure to RSVP!
