4 steps to overcome your "superwoman syndrome"

You can do #allthethings, but you can’t do them at the same time!

In this age of multitasking, it’s easy to convince yourself otherwise. The irony is that most people multitask to be more productive, but this method creates less efficiency AND order in your life.


Because you sacrifice quality, focus, and effectiveness.

Now, how unproductive is that?

If you’ve been with me for a while, you know that my method has always been to create systems and processes that enable you to be the woman your family and business need. But if you’re still struggling to find that balance, here are some practical ways to get rid of that cape.

Eliminate the mindset that productivity directly correlates with self-worth

I often remind myself that just because I didn’t check off ALL my to-dos for the day doesn’t mean that I was unproductive. Admittedly, I used to feel “less than” when I couldn’t pull off difficult and time-consuming tasks as scheduled. Today, I choose to focus on what I do accomplish, whether small or large and use that as momentum to tackle the next thing on my to-do list.

Say "NO" to things you don't like to do, don't want to do, and don't have to do

Once I stopped saying “yes” to things that stretched AND stressed me to the max, it freed up my time. I can now focus on the people and things that bring joy to my life and schedule my life how I choose - no apologies! Sure, you may get a side-eye or two from your friends, family, and clients, but isn’t your peace of mind worth it? If so, just say, “no!” (more on how to say “no” with confidence here).

Set clear boundaries with your clients, family and friends

What’s the famous saying? What you accept will continue? Well, if you’re always answering the phone after business hours and neglecting your tasks to help others complete theirs, unfortunately, you’re enabling the behavior!

Listen. Once you put your foot down (respectfully) and tell people how to treat you, things will change. Make your business hours known and remind people you can help, but based on your parameters. Truthfully, it may take some time for the people closest to you to get it, but you can establish those boundaries.

Allow yourself to be vulnerable

Do you know why most people think you can do it all? Because you’ve presented the idea that you CAN! It’s not a weakness to admit that you CAN’T do and be everything; in actuality, it’s a sign of strength because you’re fully aware of your shortcomings.

It’s no secret that without systems and processes, my personal and business life would be a WRECK! If I didn’t plan, implement, and outsource, I couldn’t be useful as an entrepreneur, 9-5er, or as a wife and mom of three boys. In my transparency, I hope to help other female entrepreneurs overcome the misconception that perfection is attainable.

Ladies, I want to guide you on how to do #allthethings effectively in your personal and business life so you can thrive in your TRUE superpower. Let’s talk about it!
