Answered by Becca Brittain, social media marketer
My main challenge was balancing â€˜going on adventures' with work. I struggled to find the balance between the two & found myself worried about client campaigns when I should be â€˜in the moment' enjoying a new city. Some days were 10-hour bed-bound WiFi-binges followed by the upside of stress-free â€˜holiday' days spent playing Frisbee on the beach. A familiar twitchiness would set in after the 36 - 48-hour mark where I find myself attached to a screen for another social media strategy session or PR spree. I'm getting better at the balance part by using planning tools like buffer & Facebook's scheduling tools plus being less hard on myself.
Honestly, I struggled with feelings of guilt of living the lifestyle of my dreams and getting paid to do it, I now realize this is a limiting belief that would keep me small so I'm stepping into and claiming my power as an independent, individual business owner.
