Two Sleepless Nights Crashed My 2023 Plan

Over the holidays, I made my 2023 plans and they were instantly put to the test after two nights of insomnia. Here’s what I’m doing to fix it.

Founder Mary Cravets started Simply Get Clients because she saw small business owners complicating growing their businesses. Or falling victim to the "build it and they will come" myth. So she developed the simple structure to cut through all the noise of social media, "experts", online funnels, advertising and more to focus on the central problem of business owners: getting more clients. And you know what? There is NOT a one-size-fits-all solution.

    I love how real and honest you are and your courage to share your times of weakness and well as strengths. In a strange way, that actually helps my own journey knowing that I don’t have to do everything on time and perfectly. I will still get to where I want to go. It definitely won’t be a straight line, but I will take it all in each day and appreciate whatever comes my way. Thanks for the reminder to give myself some grace. Maybe I’ll sleep better tonight. I hope you do too.

      Russell – thanks so much for this comment. Early in my entrepreneurial journey, one of my coaches shocked the hell out of me when he described a day where he didn’t get out of his sweats and sat on the couch and ate potato chips. It was a revelation to me that someone could be THAT successful AND have an imperfect day. Like you said, it helped to know I didn’t have to do everything perfectly.

      I’ve made a practice of being transparent about the imperfections, not to make myself small, but to normalize the bad times so they don’t take people down for the count.
