115: How To Keep Your Business Going While Grieving


I’m going to be honest, this episode is a hard one. 

I haven’t recorded anything in a few weeks because I have been grieving. Two weeks ago, I lost my 11-year-old English Setter, Millie. If you know me or have been following me for a while, you know that my dog was a huge part of my life. I’ve had her since she was 9 weeks old and she has pretty much been my shadow since day one. I never could have imagined that the grief of losing her would be this great. 

You guys know that it’s always my goal to always show up in a real and authentic way, so I wanted to share this incredibly difficult story with you to show you where I have been the last couple of weeks. 

So in today’s episode of Leading Lady, I wanted to share my best advice for continuing to move forward and work on your business when you are in the midst of grief. The only constant in life is that everything is forever moving and changing and every day is a gift. Each day may present new challenges that we didn’t expect but we have to keep moving forward. 

Gratitude is a powerful tool that we should all be using more. It feels good, heals the heart, and fills the soul. It’s so important that you allow yourself to be sad and feel that grief because you need it in order to move forward. 

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • Millie’s story
  • How life is always changing
  • How to keep going and show up when dealing with grief
  • Why gratitude is so important
  • The importance of honoring your feelings
  • Using systems and asking for help will keep your business going 

If you’re going through something tough, feeling grief, or if you’re not sure how to keep moving forward, my encouragement to you is to focus on gratitude. Ask for help. Try and do one small thing each day that keeps you moving forward. Be okay with letting yourself feel because you need to process your grief. 

Thank you all so much for letting me share. I am here and hurting but I am overwhelmed with love and gratitude for everyone who has reached out and who has loved Millie alongside me. I couldn’t imagine going through this without the support of the incredible Leading Lady community.
