Everyone wants to do work they love.
Passion for your craft can power people through plenty. It carries you through the crazy long days and pushes you to try new, amazing ideas. But truth is this: sometimes passion can get a little pushy.
Getting the chance to do work you love is an amazing opportunity, but that same passion can also push you toward burnout or neglecting other business priorities. Is this happening to you?
Here are a few red flags you don’t want to miss.
Are you treating all areas equally? If the practice of your career is more important than the business side, watch out. This approach won’t serve you well in the long run. You might enjoy the craft more than say bookkeeping, but give all jobs equal time. This helps translate your passion into profits.
Are trying to go it alone? Know when to call in the experts. If one part feels too overwhelming, don’t be afraid to ask for help. No one ever said you had to do it all completely alone.
Are you making lasting connections? Don’t be afraid to market yourself. The secret to forging lasting connections, though, is to spend some time thinking about your customers. Who are they? Where are they? What do they like? Once you know the answers, you can create content that helps them connect with all great services you offer.
