#SelfCareMatters - How can 'Peerworking' help?
By Rebecca Allam
May is the month we all shine a spotlight on #MentalHealthAwareness, and the importance of taking care of our own mental health, this journey starts with a good self-care plan/routine. Do you have one?
If not then you might want to consider making that change and we have got the tools to help you do it!
'Peerworking' can be used by many different business owners for a variety of reasons. We know from experience that it can help you on your journey to better mental health and is a great way to start putting yourself first.
Here are the top 3 reasons to use 'Peerworking' to start your self-care plan right now...
1. You Are Not Alone
At 'Peerworking' you are not just one in a crowd. You are not a small voice in a sea of voices and you are not any less or more important than anyone else in the room. We pride ourselves on being totally inclusive and giving all participants the opportunity to have their say, their voice, and to be heard. 'Peerworking' gives you a safe place to unload anything that is bothering you, keeping you up at night, or to throw around ideas to see which one fits best.
The Practitioners who attend 'Peerworking' are just like you, they want to have the headspace to think about their business and feel motivated and invigorated to try a new method, follow an idea, or set a new goal. Some come for reassurance because imposter syndrome is a real thing and all business owners experience it at some stage in their career, whether they admit it or not. Feeling alone in business can make even the simple decisions more difficult and eat away at your mental health. 'Peerworking' brings people together to have that support network and the option to use it how you see fit, for us anything goes.
2. Your Critical Friend
We are your critical friend, here to offer honest, upfront, and friendly advice on your business, if you ask for it. We don't tell any false truths at The Business Clinic, if you want an honest opinion we will give it to you... In the most friendly and supportive way that we can, to help you get to where you need to go, faster and in the knowledge that we aren't trying to people please but build you up. We are here to help you reach the goals you have set and are just as invested as you are to see you achieve them. So use us like your mini board of directors and get unbiased, honest advice from people who care about you, and your business.
3. Supporting You - Not Selling to You
‘Peerworking’ brings people together. The process of ‘Peerworking’ means that you are talking about real subjects, with real people and opening up about your goals, fears, and life experiences. No wonder our practitioners benefit from the close relationships they develop with each other. It’s one of the fastest ways to build business relationships and develop that know, like, and trust element everyone is always looking for. And the best part is that you will never have to worry about being sold to.
Not everyone enjoys networking and some avoid it like the plague because they don't want to stand in a room and be sold to for an hour, this can be a big anxiety trigger for lots of people. We completely understand this and whilst we don't class what we do as networking it is still something that will take up your time, so we want to make sure you use that time wisely and free of feeling stuck or pressured in a face-to-face situation. 'Peerworking' leaves you free to say as much or as little as you want, you will always take away hints and tips to use in your business but it is a stress-free way to work on your goals and build up real connections with people who have similar values to yourself.
We are happy to support you on your business journey to success!
