Small Business Month Workshop with Jasmine Phillips

Stress Management for Small Business Owners

Are you running your small business or is it running you?

WEDNESDAY, october 12th, 2022


6pm to 7:30pm

The Business Hive

Cost: $10 per person

Do you feel stressed most of the time, overwhelmed, exhausted? Are you operating more on a day to day basis and no time to step back and focus on the bigger picture of where you want your business to be? And how would you rate your work life balance? Good, average, poor? Or no balance at all.

You are not alone. Running your own business was always going to be stressful, but continually high levels with no time to recover can lead to burn out and an inability to work at all.

What are the physical and mental signs of work-related stress and how much is too much before it begins to affect your bottom line, your productivity and efficiency, your brand and reputation?

If you think your customers (and staff) can’t tell you are always stressed, then think again. They can sense the negative, prickly energy that comes with irritability and anxiety. Will they go somewhere else where the atmosphere is calmer, more positive and welcoming? A rival business where they don’t feel such a burden when they give you work or fearful to ask when a job will be finished.

Don’t wait to find out. Join me for this practical hands on workshop where I show you how to identify and manage your stress levels with simple but effective techniques to use at work including deep breathing exercises, mindfulness and meditation and gentle restorative yoga postures to help you unwind at the end of the long day.  

Want to take back control of your small business and work life balance? The first step starts here. Register for this workshop by emailing julia@eloquence.net.au or send me a messenger via Facebook https://www.facebook.com/eloquencebusinesscoaching

All exercises are for beginners and no prior experience is necessary. Please bring a yoga/ rubber mat or thick blanket to lie on. Cost is $10.
