    Oh boy – this is a big one. I feel as an entrepreneur that I am faced with so many ups and downs, and constantly varied tasks. My head spins as I go from zoom meetings, to tech work, to writing, to delegating, to finances. Also – the stress of cash flow and making my vision fly can be all consuming, though I am trying to stay in my feminine and TRUST! As far as practices, I don’t know where I would be without my morning meditation. I try not to skip a day! And writing down some clear intentions every morning for the day is super helpful as well. Finally – a short gratitude list in the morning helps me to stay positive. I want to hear what others are doing out there!

    Hi, this is one of my favorite topics! I used to feel so constantly overwhelmed. I’m not saying it doesn’t happen anymore, but I agree that practices such as meditation and other rituals throughout the day helped me a lot.
    When I feel overwhelmed coming, I repeat to myself: It’s ok to feel what I feel.
    Being a multi-passionate entrepreneur helped me know myself better and create a sense of resilience.
    Another big game changer was to learn how to prioritize. I’d love to be at that point where I can start delegate, but this is number one on my intention list for this year!

      What are your best prioritization tactics? I’ve been told that ruthless prioritization is key – how do you actually implement?

        Kelly, I’m excited to learn about the tactics. I am interested in learning more about the prioritizing thing. Even though I do so much in a day, to keep it all together as a biz owner, mom, wife, friend,etc… I believe my time management and what I say YES to needs fine tuning. Any tips or insights are welcome! AND Moe, I enjoyed your post!

    Great thread! I thought you all might be interested in this recent blog I wrote on the topic:

    It’s Precarious, Balancing

      Haha! Hi Moe, thanks for posting. I loved your blog post. My favorite – “It’s working! The juggle, the-wildly-out-of-balance-CEO-mom-sister-wife-mother-friend-former-athlete-wanna-be-creative-writer-person that I am, somehow manages to run a profitable business, have people who still love me, and make a difference somewhere.”
