Have you ever felt like you’re falling behind and you’re afraid there’s no room left at the top?

It’s as if other people are doing the very things you want to do — only they seem to be doing it much faster than you can.

In our hyperconnected world, it’s never been easier to get off track by comparing yourself to others. With some estimates reporting that adults are spending nearly two hours a day on social media, it’s no wonder creatives are finding it harder and harder to get things done.

That’s why I jumped at the chance to respond to a question from a new business owner who was being crushed by the comparison impulse.

Comparing yourself to others is one of the biggest small business killers there is.

Why? Because time spent comparing yourself to others means precious time not spent on more productive and enjoyable things. This is especially crucial if you’re working to build up a side business or you just don’t have a lot of free time to move your projects ahead.

In this MarieTV, you’ll learn why and how to drop the deadly habit of comparing yourself to others, and you’ll also pick up a few simple and easy-to-implement strategies to improve your website and attract more customers to your business.

Now I’d love to hear from you.

Today, we talked about the power of going cold turkey on the Compareshlager and covered some tactical website changes that can help any small business owner to be more clear and customer focused.
