First Things Don't Always Come First {an entrepreneurial lesson}

Hi! In case we haven't met: I'm Kerstin, the coach and writer in this place. I'm glad you stopped by. Get comfortable and grab something to stay hydrated - it's going to take a while. 

 

tools for better have been around since the summer of 2015, and have gone through several revisions. They have been built up, torn down, rebuilt, torn down again, kicked to the curb, resurrected, and more. Creating online coaching tools for business-care through better self-care is what I'm passionate about {and I don't use that word lightly}, but there were times when I was ready to give it all up. tools for better kept creeping back into my mind and my draft folder again and again, like something from a bad horror movie. {Very confidence-invoking, I know. Just keeping it real.} 

 

It took me almost two years to figure out why I kept wavering, and why I kept coming back anyway. Why I felt like it was a solid concept, yet I could not connect with it myself {yeah, apparently that's possible}. And that's what I mean by "first things don't always come first". I teach my clients to figure out their baseline and values first, and then go from there. Me? Well, I don't like to take my own advice. I like to make it extra hard for myself. Maybe that's my way of feeling accomplished. 

 

Is it a bad move on my part to tell you all this behind-the-scenes and in-my-head stuff? I'll let you be the judge of that, and I'm ok with whatever you decide. I've decided that sharing this part of my business journey with you is my way of telling you that you'll be ok with your business, because I've got your back. I've been there, and I'm still here. 

 

This is a look behind the scenes of tools for better, what I've learned along the way, and what happens next.
