The Importance of Boundaries as an Entrepreneur

Keeping It Centered

May 19 2021 • 52 mins

Setting boundaries is so important. One reason is that it helps protect our mental health. When we allow ourselves to be slaves to the lack mentality or hustle culture, we open the doors for stress, fear, and a host of other issues to run amuck in our lives.

God didn't call us to live overwhelmed, chaotic lives. In Him, we can find rest and peace--even as entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship may look glamourous but trust me, many entrepreneurs will let you know all that glitters ain't gold! Entrepreneurship takes a lot of intentional, strategic work--especially if you're a mom who is also working in corporate America.

This week's guest, Loren Chestnut of Captivating Calligraphy, shares with us how she's able to use a skill that brings joy to others and herself without putting her family on the backburner. If you've had a desire to start a business or turn a hobby into one but you're afraid you can't do that while being a mom, then pull up a chair with your notebook in hand. You don't want to miss this episode!

Loren shares with us:

  • the importance of having time with your hubs but also for yourself,
  • why trimming down your service offers is one of the best things you can do for your business,
  • why balance shouldn't be our focus,
  • how to know if entrepreneurship is for you, and more!

QUOTES

“Balance means all things are equal but that’s not true. You keep God in the center and everything else floats around in place.” - Loren Chestnut

“You set the framework [of your business]. You have the freedom to do that.” - Loren Chestnut

BIBLE REFERENCES

“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. - Exodus 20:8-11 ESV

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 ESV

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. - Philippians 4:6 ESV
