Hustle Culture Ends Here: Welcome Conscious Entrepreneurship

By Julia Wiklander

A lot of the business advice that we’ve received as entrepreneurs really embraces the hustle. “Just work hard, do more and keep pushing” is what the experts have said. It’s a strong part of a lot of cultures around the world. Yet, the advice is deeply flawed. It doesn’t take into account the most important things to focus on – like your own personal wellbeing. Instead, we’re encouraged to compare ourselves to others and keep going, until we can’t any more. Well, we want to tell you this: Hustle culture ends here!

As conscious entrepreneurs, we want to create a business and life defined by what matters most.

A large part of creating a business is because you want to be your own boss – create the freedom you want in life to use your uniqueness for good in the world.

For me, a large part of entrepreneurship stemmed from a strong passion to help others, coupled with the feeling that I just didn’t fit in to the 9-to-5 mold. I wanted more time for my family – while doing meaningful and creative work. 

The pitfall is that while trying to “have it all”, we try to do it all. 

And I’ve felt it. In 2019 I had a major stress overload. With two small children and working hard to succeed as an entrepreneur, I constantly felt that I wasn’t enough. To make matters worse – hustle culture was ALL around me. Do more! Be more! Show up more! Do everything!

I had set the bar too high – trying to do it all. 

After deep mindset work, continuous self care and intentional strategizing I’ve created foundation that’s aligned with my vision for my life and work. 

I’ve simplified a lot. Taken out non-essential tasks, outsourced things I don’t enjoy and set up systems that make my work so much easier. 

Despite having had strong feelings that I “need to work harder”, I now work short days and pick up my kids early – because I really want to. And the amazing thing is, I do it guilt free!

My self-care is now an essential part of my day – just like eating and sleeping. 

Say goodbye to hustle culture!

I truly believe that you don’t have to do it all. You are enough!
