Embracing Change and Building Daily Habits: Lessons from a Thriving Business Owner

Posted in

When it comes to running a successful business, there’s nothing quite as valuable as the advice of someone who has been through the trenches and comes out on the other side stronger and wiser. As a thriving entrepreneur, I have experienced the power of embracing change and building daily habits, and I’m here to share my insights with you.

Let Me Take You Back To The Beginning Of My Journey

I started my business, Clutter Control, with the mission to help families achieve peace and harmony in their homes through decluttering and organization. However, a pivotal moment came when I decided to hire a business coach who opened my eyes to the possibilities of taking my business online and working from home. It was a game-changer, allowing me to be present for my twins while continuing to make a meaningful impact through my work.

But the journey didn’t stop there. As I delved into the online space and discovered my true passion, my business underwent another transformation. I found my calling in Business and Systems consulting, empowering small businesses to thrive. This shift led to a rebranding, and Brittany & Co. was born.

Change is Never Easy

These transitions were far from easy. The unknown, the challenges, and the additional work were overwhelming, to say the least. However, I realized that embracing change and pivoting can be both nerve-wracking and exhilarating. The key is to take the time to discover what truly drives you, who you want to serve, and how you can shine brightly in your business. Building a strong foundation and understanding your unique identity is crucial before diving headfirst into creating amazing things.

So, my golden advice to fellow entrepreneurs considering a shift or pivot in their business is this: start fresh and find your niche. Become absolutely brilliant at one thing. By doing so, you’ll be better equipped to weather the challenges that come your way and carve out a path to success.

Setting Goals Alone is NOT Enough

Dreams and ambitions mean nothing without daily habits to back them up. Goals provide direction and purpose, but it’s the small actions taken consistently each day that will lead you closer to achieving those goals. Daily habits lay the groundwork for lasting change, replacing overwhelm with manageable steps. Think of it as taking one step at a time, steadily progressing toward your destination.

For example, one of my big goals this year is to travel more often with my family. How do we make sure it happens? Well, every Sunday, we gather for a good family meeting to chat about our upcoming trips and start planning them. It’s our way of making sure we’re making progress and turning our wanderlust dreams into reality! 

The Bottom Line

To turn your aspirations into reality, it’s essential to take your goals out of your head and put them into action. Start by identifying habits that align with your objectives and commit to integrating them into your routine. Success is not an overnight phenomenon; it’s the accumulation of daily habits that propels you toward your dreams.

As you reflect on your goals and habits, remember that creating Days By Design is the key to making your aspirations come to life. Embrace change, discover your passion, and build daily habits that support your vision. With determination and dedication, you’ll find yourself on the path to success, just as I did on my entrepreneurial journey.
