After owning and selling my tech company in my twenties, then buying and operating an ad agency in my thirties, it dawned on me that I wasn’t happy. Always chasing my the next campaign and the next account. I was stressed, tired and fat! That’s right, the less I loved my work, the less I loved myself, the less I took care of myself. Beauty routine went out the door too.
One day, I sat down and made a list of the five business tasks that made me the happiest. The most common thread among my top five: Making things beautiful. It didn’t matter if it was the campaign I was designing, the new office space I was setting up or getting the perfect blow out, I had a need to improve, restore and beautify the world around me. Probably why I ended up investing in spas now in my 40s.
The moral is, I was the happiest, and all my businesses made the most money when I JUST worked on these five things. The rest is done by staff each working off their own top five list. Let’s face it. We only get 24 hours. Outside of investing them into family, I can’t think of anything better than playing a professional pretty maker 😉 xo
