Behind the Boss Mask

Myth: You’re Not a Real Entrepreneur Unless You Hustle + Grind Everyday.

Burnout is a Badge of Honor, right?!

We’ve all seen the “motivational” images on Instagram + in Facebook groups:

  • Rise and Grind
  • Grind Daily
  • Hustle Hard
  • Everyday I’m Hustlin’

It sounded really powerful at first, but now? Now, hustling + grinding sounds stressful, painful, + obnoxiously self-sacrificing. Am I right? It feels like a 24-7, panic-filled game of FOMO.

But can you actually have a successful business without working 12 hours a day, 7 days a week?

Aren’t late nights + long weekends a requirement for success?

Epic Truth: You CAN Take a Day (or Week!) Off From Your Business Without Feeling Guilty (or Losing All Your Clients)

Welcome to the World of Burnout Busting.

Building a business takes a hearty dose of passion, mixed with effort + intelligent use of your time, but volunteering your happiness + well-being to make it happen?

That’s a choice, not a requirement!

You CAN:

  • Have a successful business without working 60+ hours a week
  • Enjoy weekends away from your computer
  • Create your own custom schedule that changes to fit you + your loved ones’ needs
  • Take a few days (or weeks!) off for memory-making fun
  • Be prepared for unexpected emergencies + illnesses (because life sure does love to surprise us)

Remember why you started a business in the first place: freedom. Knowing what freedom means to you is the first major step toward actually obtaining it with your hard work.

Hi! I’m Victoria.

A Former Hustle Addict / Burnout Queen

vk-collageA serial entrepreneur for 12+ years, I turned hustle into an art form, + that’s not a good thing. I built 4 businesses from the ground up, + destroyed them all, thanks to burnout.

We’re talking hardcore, anxiety attack, crying in the corner, losing tens of thousands of dollars, + destroying my reputation kinda burnout.

It hasn’t all been pretty, but it has been incredibly educational. Each time I failed, I learned something new about what it truly takes to succeed as a modern entrepreneur. I’ve also had the pleasure of working for + learning from some of the most established entrepreneurs around, including Marie Forleo, Selena Soo, + Natalie MacNeil.

When I launched my most recent business in August 2015 (business #5 for those keeping track), I knew this time HAD to be different. I want to commit to helping people in a way that is sustainable + profitable.

High five – I did it! In less than 3 months, my client roster was full + I was making nearly $5,000 every month. But I don’t want you to go through 12 years of tears + failure to get where I’ve gotten.

Think of me as your Burnout Busting Alchemist 🙂

P.S. I’m also a former professional fashion model + actress, 2-time published nonfiction author, 500-hour certified Yoga Teacher, host of the swank Behind the Boss Mask podcast, wife of a Marine Corps veteran, introvert, Gemini, tea snob, dark chocolate geek, + collector of owl- or skull-shaped anything.

Burnout is Real … and it Isn’t Pretty

As a human, but especially as an entrepreneur, you may have experienced:

  • Exhaustion
  • Lack of motivation (feeling “meh” about almost everything)
  • Lack of concentration (what the heck is focus!?)
  • Growing negative emotions (are you missing the good in everyday situations?)
  • Growing conflicts in personal relationships
  • Anxiety or panic attacks
  • Constant feelings of overwhelm (does the weight on your shoulders ever ease up?)
  • Seemingly random health problems

Sound familiar?

These symptoms aren’t “just part of being an entrepreneur,” they’re the red flags of burnout.

Whether you have kids, a partner, or you’re single, being an entrepreneur consumes an incredible about of your time, energy, focus, + decision-making (even when you’re “following your passion”).

If you’ve been hustlin’ + grindin’ for at least 2 years, but still haven’t experience that freedom + ease you were dreaming of when you started, then it’s time to take action.

As an entrepreneur, you’re a skilled action-taker, so let’s apply the same passion to eliminating burnout for good!

No blog post or book can truly give you insight into how to establish your customized burnout plan because every person + every business is full of complexities.

Working together 1:1, we can bust your burnout cycle for good. If you want a mentor that loves your business as much as you do, you’ve come to the right place. 🙂

Is Burnout Mentoring Right For You?

You’ve been running your business + making money from it for at least 2 years.

You want to create a solid plan to change transform your stress + strain to freedom + ease.

You want self-care to feel fun + refreshing, not another to-do on your list.

You don’t know what’s worth spending your time on each day; what to delegate; or how to plan for vacations or emergencies.

You love what you do, but you simply can’t do it all yourself.

The VIP Treatment is NOT For You If:

  • You like to bitch about your struggle + packed calendar, but don’t actually do anything to improve or change it.
  • You’re “experimenting” with your business + not fully committed to its success (which is also your success).
  • You believe riding the rollercoaster of hustle+grind-to-burnout is your purpose in life.
  • You see absolutely no value is doing something good for yourself.
  • You see absolutely no value in working smarter, not harder or longer hours.
  • You believe you’re the be-all, end-all that can accomplish anything + everything by yourself.
