- September 14, 2014 2 MIN READ

It’s hard to maintain focus and balance when you’re doing everything yourself. With tips on handling overwhelm, staying on track and looking after yourself, this video provides new skills and will renew your energy.

What you’ll learn:

Staying upbeat has much to do with how you set up your business and the support structures you establish. Presenter Emma Grey shares her wealth of experience gained both in her own business and as a consultant working with corporate and Government clients. Topics covered include:

Working out what’s important

For many soloists, business has to fit in around other commitments and time is at a premium. Through enquiry and planning, clarifying priorities can become a routine.

Establishing effective boundaries

Whether family, friends and neighbours, work colleagues or other distractions, safeguarding your headspace from others is an essential element of solo success.

Developing the ideal working week

If you’re forever getting to the end of the week having not accomplished what you expected, it’s time to take control and work your ideal week.

How to design and build your own support network

Easier than it may sound, all of us can develop a team of supporters to help us achieve our goals. Emma shows us how.
