ImperfectAction on our Biz Journey

Welcome to Episode #21 of The Parenting Biz Podcast - coming to you every single Monday. Now let's chat with this week's featured Guest, Claire Barton. This week, our entire interview will be artistically drawn around the board game, Pictionary. So let’s organise our teammates and begin “Recovering from Perfectionism” through taking “ImperfectAction on our Biz Journey” with our Team Captain Claire. Summary of today’s game: Team Members - Let’s be honest, the entrepreneur journey can be lonely and overwhelming...but it doesn’t have to be Truly has to feel aligned with you Give yourself permission to NOT hang out with those who aren’t your tribe You must pick and choose your cheerleaders Be selective of who you tell what information to Give yourself permission to NOT include every person in your life with your business decisions Sketching A New Word -  just like in the game Pictionary, you have to sketch the word on the card, but what if you can’t draw?! Swim in your own lane Work in your own zone of genius Outsource & automate Learn to let go -- delegate Start with something that’s ‘unstuff-upable’ Rules -  just like in Pictionary, artists can’t use sign language, letters, dashes, speak to teammates, numbers or ears for “sounds like” Create more space to do what you like in life Have some sort of structure to fall back on Set purposeful, boundary driven goals Deck of Cards - just like the game, there’s a deck of cards with a variety of items, the artist must draw Not a fan of going zero to hero really quickly Understanding what you want to get out of your business All about lean startup Have a strategy: where am I going to spend my time and energy & what’s the fastest way / most efficient way without worrying about all the bells and whistles to start with Start making money before you spend it Content creation is about 30% of Claire’s time Start with your core message / messages It has to serve a purpose and have a call to action *Final message from today’s board game: There’s always urgency or pressure when starting/running a business You never know everything There’s always missing pieces Comparinatis is a real thing Give yourself permission to play Have a laugh with it You don’t need to know exactly what the end product will look like to get started with something right now   Want to contact the guest?   Listen to The Recovering Perfectionist Podcast   Website  Freebies Page on Claire’s website (Grab your own 90 day content planner, a tribe tracker and a few other bits!)  Instagram  Facebook                                Music in Interview is: BACK IN SUMMER by Nicolai Heidlas Music https://soundcloud.com/nicolai-heidlasCreative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported— CC BY 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/b...Music promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/sGsC98vR4Q4
