Burnout is one of the most explosive things that can happen in your business and it can bring things to a sudden and screeching halt, as you watch your income dwindle to zero when you find yourself suddenly and unexplainably unable to do anything. Burnout is a serious conundrum in the online entrepreneur community today because we are constantly bombarded with advertisements promising the benefits of hustling 24/7, never giving up, taking on more and more projects etc. etc. etc. I have fallen victim to near burnout several times and have had to walk myself back from the edge of the cliff of feeling like I didn’t even want to be in business anymore.

Whew, we’ve survived another wedding season! Now there’s a small window to recharge and safely scroll through our Facebook and Instagram feeds where apples and pumpkins, autumn leaves and warm blankets replace white gowns and sparkly rings. Until the holidays arrive and the next wave of engagement announcements come sure as sugar cookies and watching Elf.

That’s not coming from bitterness, I promise. Like many of my fellow ladies, I’m in a happy, healthy relationship and we’ve talked about marriage as much as he’s diced onions for me. In other words,

We’re all trying to create our dream life, right? The dream career, dream relationship, dream house, dream bank account.

Here’s why having a mentor is integral to your personal development and how to find them.Every boss babe needs a mentor - Sweet Success Society

We’ve all heard the saying “failure isn’t an option”, right? Okay, now what if I told you that saying is complete bullshit? You’ve probably been hearing that your whole life much like I have. Chances are if you’re anything like me you got in trouble every time you failed at something. Whether it was poor grades in school or having a meltdown in public (hello, childhood anxiety) you were probably punished in some way.

Failure - Sweet Success Society

If this wasn’t the case for you, consider yourself lucky because you’re probably a pretty well-adjusted human being. For those who have been taught from a young age that failure is bad,

It seems like common sense and straightforward: In order to stop making excuses, you have to recognize that you’re making them in the first place. Excuses are excuses, right?

You’d think so. But time and time again, our minds play tricks on ourselves into thinking that, well, these excuses are far more important than they actually are. We tell ourselves that instead of excuses, they’re REASONS. And there is a big difference between those two words, my friends.

You want to achieve this, that, and the other—do something, go somewhere, be productive, develop healthy habits. Whatever it is,
