How to survive the first three years as an entrepreneur – Managing your Energy for the long Haul – Powerbreakfast #2 – 5 March 2015

Powerbreakfast #1

In March I had the honor to talk to a group of highly motivated female entrepreneurs at the #Powerbreakfast of the Powerhouse Zurich (Follow @Powerhouse_ZRH).

A key quote they selected was “Your Mood defines your Business”.  I know that mood can be influenced and as an intercultural executive coach I help you to reach a state of “relaxed attention” from where you can follow through your plans while at the same time keeping your energy level. However, being an entrepreneur I can tell you that I also sometimes fall out of my state of relaxed attention into either creative-overengaged–workaholic or phlegmatic-I-cannot-deal-with-all-of-this-at-the-same-time (staring into the empty space as if I was looking at someone). 

I had to accept as a manager, leader and business owner that there will be times when I am losing it.

Did you ever feel like you lost the overview, lost the focus or lost yourself?

Usually this is the time where I consult either my male coach or my female coach (depending on what I need). No, you are not calling your father or your mother, because honestly when you are beyond 40 you deal with this sh** professionally. And then once you paid your 350 CHF per coaching session and worked out your limiting beliefs and a few not-very-helpful-behaviors you get back on track. And then (whoo-hoo) success flies at you at rocket speed. (It’s true…after every crisis my business takes a leap).

In my talk on 5 March 2015 I went through nine rules I have developed over the last three years of running my business Global People Transitions GmbH.

They have been kindly summarized by Mirka Schaller in this one-pager. Let me know if you have questions.
