It's world mental health day, and we can't talk about mental health without talking about the mental load on small business owners, especially right before the holidays. This time of year we are known to burn the candle at both ends, working to get holiday promotions and products ready, or in my case, editing the slew of fall photos that I've taken.
Being in my 20's with no children, it is so easy to think "just one more session and I'll go to bed", while simultaneously peeling my eyes open like an old cartoon. I don't do photography full time right now, which means after I stay up until the wee hours of the morning working on photography, I have to go to my full time day job at 8am. This is a routine many small business owners are far too familiar with, but there are several things I do to avoid burning out.
These are a few strategies that help me, but it can be so hard to stick to them sometimes, especially during the fall. How do you handle burnout?
