Are you the one running your business or is your business running you?
I went through a time in my business when my business was definitely running me, and I have talked to a lot of other people that have said the same thing.
I am interviewing one of our Accelerator coaching members, Caitlin Mitchell, in this episode to talk all about her experience with this, how it affected her and how she has been able to turn her mindset and business around to gain more control.
Caitlin Mitchell is one of the co-founders and CEO of EB Academics, an organization on a mission to provide teachers with engaging and rigorous ELA lessons. Caitlin and her business partner, Jessica, founded EB Academics with the desire to help English teachers find success in their reading and writing curriculum while providing a community of like-minded educators. Through their online EB Writing Program and monthly membership, The EB Teachers’ Club, they have helped thousands of ELA teachers support their students in mastering standards.
On Today’s Show You’ll Learn:
- The impact that being a business owner has on your life
- How consuming running a business can be
- Focusing on being a leader instead of the details of the day to day
- The benefit of bringing employees onto your team
- How to slowly release control with new hires
- Adjusting your hiring strategy based on your finances and workload
Remember, we are building our business around our life, not the other way around. We want to be present for the most important things and relationships in our lives, and we can only do that when we are the ones running the show.
Now that Caitlin is focused on being the CEO, she is able to really run her business. Like she mentioned, getting too caught up in the day-to-day details didn’t allow her to do that.
If you’re an online course creator or an online coach experiencing the same types of feelings as Caitlin, I want to invite you to apply for my Accelerator Coaching Program. This is for those of you that already have some success but want to scale and optimize toward seven figures or more while working less. You can apply at rickmulready.com/accelerator!
