Do you ever open your calendar, see a week full of calls, and feel a creeping sense of dread?
It seems like even the most extroverted business owners get sick of taking calls. Between selling to prospective clients, meeting with current clients, and collaborating with other business owners, it’s easy to feel drained and overwhelmed.
But is it really the calls making you feel this way? Or is it the idea of these calls?
Many of us carry the trauma of our corporate years into our own businesses. The years of feeling unheard and unappreciated create a sense of dread around all meetings. Before we’ve even logged into Zoom, we’ve convinced ourselves the call won’t go well.
But you aren’t working in corporate anymore. You’re the boss here. And when you learn to distinguish the exhausting calls from the ones that truly energize you, you can start attracting the kind of people who make you excited for meetings.
On Today’s Show You’ll Learn:
- Why the goal isn’t necessarily no calls, but a schedule that energizes us
- How to determine the real reason you dread calls
- How your past corporate experience can affect the way you feel about calls
- Discovering which calls energize you and which drain you
