Have you ever reached that point in your business when you're trying too hard to come up with something and nothing seems to be perfect no matter what you do?

Listen to This Episode

You're tired. You feel like just stopping.

That's what happened to me today.

I initially had a different topic in mind for today, something you'd normally hear from me at Learning with Leslie but, I just didn't feel excited as I usually am.

I didn't have the drive to finish everything for today's podcast episode.

I am exhausted.


Sometimes, when we work too hard all the time, it's better to pause and take a break to give ourselves some time to think and rest and just relax so we can be more energized when we're ready to come back and do our work.

So, for those of you listening for the first time, please stop. This is not the best episode to listen to me 😉

Inside This Episode

What To Do When You’re In A Blogging Funk

I decided to share some things with you from my heart, things that I plan to do to help me deal with this.

You don't have to feel frustrated. You are not alone. It happens to me. It happens to other bloggers and other business owners just like you go through it. It is but natural for us to feel that blogging funk.

But, we can't have that moment bring everything else down for us. This season too, will pass but, as we are in that situation, we have to learn to face it.

This may be a relatively shorter episode than usual but even so, I hope you still get some value from it. Don't worry. This is but a phase in our business and there are definitely things we can do to surpass that from as simple as taking a break to creating a support system of like-minded individuals around you and your business.

Question for You

Has this happened to you before? What have you done or what do you do to overcome that? Come and share your thoughts in the comments below. Let us know we are not alone in this 🙂
