Staying on track
What a relief it was to get through my first set of modules for my Diploma of Business Course and to reach my first assessment. That is, until I realised that my assessment was due the same time as I was launching a brand new eCourse!. If you’ve never launched an eCourse before, let’s just say it’s … intense!
In the past I would have gone into full blown panic mode, but if there’s one thing I’m learning in life, it’s to just do what you can do, and reach out for help if you need it.
And this is what I did. I reached out to my assigned Business Angel, who is my mentor for the duration of the course. She’s the best at keeping my motivation going and supporting me through the course. She gave me an extension, gently suggested that I complete my assessment before my planned family holiday to Port Douglas, and sent me on my way.
The assessment turned out to be lot more intense and time-consuming than I expected, which is where, again, my mentor was invaluable. By this time she was pretty well-versed in my particular learning style (mild aural style – i.e. I need things verbally explained to me!). I learned about this aspect of myself by completing one of the course modules, and it has been an unexpectedly helpful piece of insight when it comes to running my business. Oh, and these Raw Cacao Balls also helped, a lot!
I have returned from holiday to hit the ground running. With the relaunch of my Break Through! Program looming, there’s a ton to do, AND it’s school holidays! That relaxed family holiday feeling is fading fast I can tell you, and the lazy poolside days have reverted back to the real life battle to organise time for kids, work and chores. Luckily I have a call with my Business Angel lined up on Tuesday afternoon and she’ll no doubt make everything all right.
So if you are feeling overwhelmed with the weight of all life has to offer, take a deep breath and remember if you reach out for help, there’s bound to be somebody ready to lend a hand.
