Redefining success

Being a business owner who commits to being well rested and highly successful in some places is an act of rebellion because you’re saying “no, I’m not going to be a part of these systems that oppress so many people, myself included. I’m going to step outside of the line and try to do this in a different way.” (Maegan Megginson)

The current view of success is hard-lined, driven, self-sacrificing to the limit, and demands us to work overtime. We’re supposed to neglect any life other than the work that we’re supposed to complete.

Overall, this is not a success because it is not sustainable. The definition of success that is rooted in unhealthy self-sacrifice can be changed when enough people realize that there are other ways of going about business. We can change the way we want to achieve success, earn a high income, and realize our ambitions.

Own who you are for the sake of your business

Design your business to serve you first before anyone else.

When you create your work from your passions, you are encouraged and motivated to do the work. Otherwise, you’ll end up forcing yourself to do something for the sake of others, which is draining to you. This is an unsustainable model of business, and it can change as well.

I find that people who build their businesses as an expression of who they are, and people who create boundaries in their business that align with their needs, emotionally, energetically, financially, those are the people who make the greatest impact for the people that they want to serve. (Maegan Megginson)

Maegan’s process for your business

1 – Clarifying: answer big questions about who you are and what you want for yourself, your career, and your family financially.

2 – Which business model fits best: how can you structure your business model to complement the life that you want to create for yourself?

  • What is your expertise?
  • Which clients do you want to serve?
  • How do you want to show up in your company?

3 – What is the next step? What is the thing that you want to do, beyond how you earn your income? You can do anything.
