2. Kate McKibbin, Secret Bloggers Business Kate-McKibbin-mindset tips for work-life balance

“I think the biggest turning point for me was actually becoming aware of the stories I was telling myself… things like “You have to work really hard to make money” or “nothing comes easily… that would be cheating” were big stories I told myself. And even just being aware of them means you can start to do something about them (because of course, they are just stories… and they are only true if you make them true!).” – Kate McKibbin, Secret Bloggers Business

“Be on high alert for your excuses. Every time you say ‘I can’t’ or ‘I don’t know how’ or ‘nobody told me’… you’re blocking the potential that can move through you. Take ownership of your life and use your vocabulary consciously and with purpose. ‘I can’t’ strips you of your power and indicates that what you truly believe is that you’re a victim of your circumstances. Powerful language like ‘I won’t’ or ‘I’m not willing’ places the power back where it belongs — in your heart and in your hands.” – Tara Bliss


4. Emma & Carla Papas, The Merrymaker Sisters

5. Sarah Lloyd, Welcoming Wellness


“Get super clear with your vision and the reasons why you do what you do. Every task must move you towards this goal. RPM is the answer. R- reasons. P – purpose. M – Massive action plan. Helps every time with every question.” – Sarah Lloyd


6. Vicky, Vitality Nutrition


“Be mindful of setting limitations based on your own beliefs.” – Vicky


7. Megan Gogoll, The Anxious Poet

laura o'hagan mindset tips from entrepreneurs

“Resilience and unwavering self-belief need to be cultivated on a daily basis as an entrepreneur. I’ve found that incorporating mindset work into my business so that it forms part of the day, (just like sales, finances and management) has allowed me to step up to places that only six months ago, didn’t seem possible. Find a way to strengthen that belief on a daily basis and the success will follow.” – Laura O’Hagan

16. Cherie Bobbins, CherieBobbins.com

cherie bobbins mindset tips from entrepreneurs

“I encourage others to think pragmatically about how they are feeling, the thoughts they are having and their effect on the work you want to be doing. I’m not immune to negative self-talk or self-doubt so when I’m in a funk, I ask myself, ‘is this helping me get where I want to go?’ More often than not, it’s no. By asking yourself that quick question when you feel like that funk is creeping in, you can quickly learn, why it crept in in the first place, how to avoid it and how to learn from and overcome it in the future.” – Cherie Bobbins


17. Tanya Doherty, Beach Fit And Wellbeing

“Recognise the stories from the truth. Our minds create stories that hold us back, keep us in our comfort zones or make us think we’re incapable. Today I DARE YOU to do something that you’ve been putting off or that makes you feel uncomfortable – don’t let the story win.” – Crystal Kapolitsas

“Have perspective and be grateful. Be grateful that we live in a country that allows us access to these kinds of opportunities. Be grateful that you’re further along today than you were yesterday (even if it doesn’t feel that way right now). Be proud that you had the balls to follow your dreams because let’s face it so many people don’t and that’s a crime.” – Lou

Bianca Romeo mindset tips from entrepreneurs

“‘Craft your career around your lifestyle, not your lifestyle around your career.’ Success comes in many forms and working yourself into the ground isn’t one of them. To enjoy the roller coaster ride of running a business (or an empire, whichever) you need to enjoy your work, your loved ones, and your friends. As long as you are happy, you win. Aren’t we all really just doing what we do to be happy? So imagine being happy every single day. Money in the bank doesn’t matter if you aren’t happy.” – Bianca Romeo
