When Your Business Mojo Goes Missing: Finding Your Way Back

April 17, 20243 min read

Every entrepreneur knows the drill: Wake up, grind, sleep, repeat. 

But what if one day you wake up and realize you're just not feeling it? 

Not just today, but for days, maybe weeks on end? 

The truth is, running both on and in your business as a solopreneur can be an exhilarating yet exhausting marathon. There are moments when your motivation tank hits empty, and guess what? It's perfectly OK. In fact, this unwelcome guest called 'Zero Motivation' might just be the unexpected ally you didn't know you needed.

For me, this happened while we were traveling/working in Colorado in March. It was a beautiful sunny day in Golden, CO. After a couple of weeks of waiting up at the crack of dawn and fully concentrating on creating content for our new online tool (The Success Hub)... all I wanted to do on this bright sunny day was go for a hike to see the beautiful Clear Creek Canyon and listen to all the song birds.

This “slump” lasted about 2.5 weeks. I’m officially out of it now, so life is good!

Understanding the "What" and "Why"

First, let's tackle the elephant in the room: Why does a solopreneur lose motivation? Whether it's the monotony of daily tasks, the pressure of being the one-person-band, or the isolation that comes with the territory, there are countless reasons. Recognizing that these feelings are part of the entrepreneurial journey is the first step towards turning them into something productive.

Embracing the Slump

Yes, you read that right. Embrace it. But how?

1. Self-reflection: Use this time to look inward. What are these feelings trying to tell you? Are you overworked, or perhaps not challenged enough? Sometimes, the lack of motivation stems from not seeing the forest for the trees. Take a step back and reassess your business goals and personal well-being.

2. Take a Break: Counterintuitive, right? As solopreneurs, the idea of taking a break often comes with a side of guilt. But rest and recharge are not just recommended; they're required. Your brain needs downtime to process, recharge, and come back stronger.

3. Seek Inspiration: Sometimes, all it takes is a spark. Listen to podcasts, read books, or talk to fellow entrepreneurs. Inspiration can come from the most unexpected places and reignite your passion for your business.

4. Set Small, Achievable Goals: The idea of working on your business (strategic planning, marketing, etc.) while working in it (day-to-day operations) can be overwhelming. Break down your tasks into smaller, manageable goals. Celebrating small wins can significantly boost your motivation.

5. Ask for Help: Being a solopreneur doesn't mean you have to do everything alone. Delegate tasks that drain your energy or consider hiring a virtual assistant for administrative duties. Joining entrepreneur groups (like our Peer Advisory Board - click here to schedule a discovery call to learn more!) or finding a mentor can also provide you with the support and advice you need. 

How to Get Started

Start with the smallest step: acknowledge how you're feeling. Then, pick one tip from above and commit to it for a week. Maybe it's setting aside 30 minutes daily for self-reflection or scheduling a day off for some much-needed rest. The key is to take action, no matter how small.

The One Thing ⬇️

Remember, feeling unmotivated doesn't mean you're failing; it means you're human. The entrepreneurial journey is as much about self-discovery and growth as it is about building a business. These slumps are not just obstacles but opportunities to pause, reflect, and align your business with your personal values and vision. So, when motivation seems like a distant memory, remember: It's not just OK; it might be exactly what you need to propel you forward in ways you hadn't imagined.
