In this Changemaker Challenge episode, Cate and Grace discuss the warning signs of slacker career habits.
A lot of us wellness pros are great at what we do, but that’s not enough to grow a business. Often we’re reluctant to even think of the services we provide as a “business,” so we have slacker habits when it comes to our careers. We’re in reactive mode and do little to no long term business planning. If we want make a bigger impact by helping more people, we need to develop professional career habits that systematically grow our business so that it’s easier for people to find us.
To start, we need to develop a larger perspective by identifying and quantifying 3 aspects of our career growth: impact, revenue, and lifestyle. A wellness pro with pro career habits is doing annual and quarterly planning that includes actionable steps that will help her hit her targets in all three areas. Using a project management tool streamlines the process and provides a structure for automating pro career habits.
Getting into integrity with being a wellness pro involves creating habits that increase our levels of skill and challenge so that we remain in flow throughout our careers and avoid hitting a plateau.
