I got a call recently from a colleague with great news…she’s pregnant! But she’s also exhausted and worried about the business. She wanted to know how she’ll make it through without tanking the business she spent the last five years building. The good news is that the first trimester is often the hardest for many women. Oddly, the second trimester actually brings a surplus of energy for many. So taking care of yourself, napping when possible, and doing what you can to keep the business rolling, you’ll soldier on until you hit the second trimester, and then you can put some extra energy into planning the rest of your pregnancy and your first few months with your newborn. When I shared all of this with my friend, she was very relieved. She called me just a few weeks later letting me know that she was tackling new projects. You go, girl!
