You're one of the most dedicated individuals in your niche and you know that. You're willing to do whatever it takes to make your business successful, but are you burning out from the long hours?
You know the grind comes with the job, but you weren't expecting it like this. How much is too much? How do I know if you're addicted to the grind?
Here are 5 questions to ask if you feel yourself in a cycle of overworking.
1. Are you trying to manage all aspects of your company by yourself?
You don't have a team or fully trust the one you do have, so you spend a lot of your time doing smaller tasks in order to keep your business afloat.
2. Are you scared to hire someone and waste your money?
You know you need help but you don't know how to find someone that's a good match for you. You've tried references and job postings, but nothing seems to w
ork out. You feel like you can't find someone who meets your standards.
3. Do you have boundaries set for your work schedule?
Do you find yourself working well into the night or often on weekends?
4. Do you put your personal life on the back burner for work?
Are you missing important events or time with friends and fam
ily because you're always working?
5. When was the last vacation you went on or even a self-care day?
You spend all of this time working, but are you able to enjoy life outside of work?
We were told to grind it out, learn this and do that, to multitask, but all multitasking has gotten us is long days of working nonstop and little to show for it.

In order to ditch the grind, there are a few must-haves for your company.
Stop waiting! Hire some help. - You are working all the time and stressing yourself out. It's ok to need and ask for help. Learn where you could use the most help and how to make sure you make the perfect hire for you.
Don't be afraid to delegate! - You might have trouble letting go of some of your work and are worried it won't be done right, but have some faith in the team you've built. Make sure you know how to communicate with your team and help them with resources to succeed.
Consider the future. - As your business continues to grow, it's important to analyze where your company is right now and where you hope to be one day. When you have a clear vision, you can focus on the details to make that possible.
