Welcome back to the Scale Your Small Business Podcast with your host, Jillian Flodstrom. Today, Jillian is going to share a few of her personal strategies that have made an immediate impact on both her professional and personal lives. From the tactical to the intangible, there are plenty of small changes and pivots you can make to see real growth.

Jillian’s first tip is that you get one day to wallow. Whatever happens or has happened to you, whether it makes you upset, angry, or some concoction of negative emotions, you get exactly 24 hours before you need to start searching for a solution. This is a short amount of time, and may not fit into every circumstance, but the point is that you give yourself a limit before you start to pick yourself up and start again. These feelings shouldn’t, and won’t stop you.

Second, develop a routine. Having a set series of things you do every day helps keep your business, mind, and body running smoothly. It can help you gear up for a big day, brainstorm, or clear your head. Either way, make sure you have a process and stick to it.

Third, be kind to yourself. You may be doing something you’ve never done before, facing challenges you haven’t seen yet, or overcoming a difficult hurdle. Offer yourself some grace. It’s easy to beat yourself up over every moment of the day, but understand that you are always learning, always growing. That’s what matters.

Fourth, set achievable goals and take breaks. Consider blocking your goals out in chunks. Start small and get the little things done--they add up. Once you start achieving, you get into a flow and achieving becomes a habit. Before you know it, you’re moving forward and hitting every mark.

Fifth, write everything down. Every random thought, idea, question, or answer that pops into your head should go down on paper of some sort. It’s easy to convince yourself you’ll never forget, but when the time comes, it’s safer to have it in front of you. Get a cute notebook you know you’ll love carrying with you!

Finally, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Believe or not, there is probably someone out there who can do something better than you--and that’s okay. If you find yourself stuck and try to power through, you’ll end up burning out fast.
