The chaotic nature to running a business can easily numb your enthusiasm for it. Here are 5 ways you can rekindle the passion you once had for your entrepreneurship.
As founders, we’re sometimes not great at taking time out. Yet that’s often exactly what we need to get some perspective on the situation. Make the time, do something fun, try something completely different or creative and you’ll likely find answers in the most unexpected places.

That saying, most often applied to the dating scene, is also true in business. Romance with a business that’s not making money won’t last, so take key actions daily to produce cash. Whether it’s a certain number of sales calls, publishing a blog post, sending out a newsletter, or hosting a sales-focused event, take actions every day that lead directly or indirectly to money, and you’ll love your business more every day too.
Remember What You Loved from the Start
As your business evolves, it’s natural that your role as an owner shifts too. Before you know it, your schedule’s filled with administrative duties and decisions—but none of the hands-on dirty work you once loved. Reflect on the tasks that made you most excited when you were starting your business. Did you love interacting with the customers or designing your own marketing materials?
Analyze the Problem
Is there something specific that is driving you crazy about your business right now? Maybe you feel out of control because you let your processes and systems slip. Or it could be that you ignored those red flags and you’re working with the wrong clients. You could even have moved away from the type of projects that you really love because you were guided by a fear of not making enough money. Write down where you think things got off track.
