Have you heard of Entrepreneurial Loneliness?
What happens when you try to do it all? Even worse, what happens when you try to do it all — alone.
I can tell you from my experience that going it alone causes a bottle neck, in life and in business. Oh, crap let’s be real here. From my experience, it was less of a bottle neck and a lot more like sludge. Yucky, sticky, slow moving, dark, thick sludge.
After way too long, I slowly ventured out and found a way to shift that. I became more connected, I reached out, I got to know other women
who understood that struggle. I made new friends and re-connected with old ones. I felt better each and every time.
In the beginning it took me a while because, as I mentioned in a previous post
, I was intimidated by NYC women
and I felt like they may just eat me alive, HA!
The result was that I found as well as created some solutions that you may find can cure your entrepreneurial loneliness as well.
Here’s what worked for me:
I finally got out from behind my computer and from running my business alone and became part of networks, groups, and masterminds full of other like-minded, creative, supportive entrepreneurial women
. And when I wanted more, I created my own. It has been refreshing and fun and guess what – not nearly as intimidating as I had imagined.
Here are some things you can try.
If you work at home, take your work to the park or a coffee shop.
Reach out to an ‘online friend’ in our area and invite her for coffee meet.
Create a weekly activity with your biz minded friends – a weekly walk, a monthly book club.
After you go to events, connect again with a few of the women
you enjoyed talking with.
