The Skinny on Personal Development …

Change equals self-improvement. Push yourself to places you haven’t been before.
~ Pat Summit, Author and 1976 Summer Olympics Silver Medalist

The importance of personal development can’t be overstated. It is truly the secret sauce that separates you from the rest of the pack. It is the bridge that carries you forward and towards your inspiring goals.

No matter what your niche, as an entrepreneur you’re singularly focused on productivity and problem solving. You’re a hustler who works as hard as possible and as fast as possible for as long as you can (hopefully without crashing and burning) because the outside world perceives you as a Rockstar. We live in a culture of “I don’t need help, I can do it on my own” but in the end you’re only risking your emotional well-being.

What I’m trying to get at here is that entrepreneurs struggle with personal development. While juggling the day-to-day balancing act … … There’s just not enough time. So, my plea to you is to step outside your comfort zone and start engaging yourself in meaningful self-growth practices and expanding your mind through every learning opportunity you can get your hands on (big or small).

Remember, life begins at the end of your comfort zone …!

A comfort zone is nothing but a belief, a mere reflection of your thoughts. You desire something, better yet you fear change. Self-doubt will bind you there, belief is all you need. ~ Anonymous

There are many things you can do on a regular basis to make self-improvement a key part of your everyday entrepreneurial lifestyle that will help your business and your personal life …

  1. Read more — it exercises your brain and improves your concentration.
  2. Take courses — improve the skills you have or add some to your list.
  3. Attend conferences – not only great for networking but for acquiring new skills.
  4. Talk to others – you learn just as much from your team members and other entrepreneurs.
  5. Be less busy — working on time management improves focus.
  6. Prioritize your passions — remember what matters most to you.
  7. Take YOU time – relax and recharge so you can find peace and be more agile.

In short, the more you invest in yourself (business and pleasure), the more you will have to offer.

Crystal Kordalchuk

Crystal is an artist, a writer, an organizer, a dreamer, a doer, and down-right proud of it NERD!.

Struck with a love for #AllThings creative at a very young age, Crystal dreamed of a life fueled by her passion for creating and bringing the stories and images in her mind into reality.

As she worked toward her dreams, she earned a diploma as a Computer Applications Specialist then another in Graphic Design and from there began to develop her extensive background in multimedia and the arts. She began her worked in the magazine industry as a layout designer and had a succession of design jobs thereafter. It was her role as a graphic/web designer that gave her the first real glimpse of her future. Soon she began a side job as a freelance designer while keeping one foot in the corporate world. A spark was lit! She turned her freelance gig into a full-time business combining design work with her other passion: creating organization from virtual chaos.

Crystal is one of the most organized individuals on the planet. She is by all means a Zen master of her crafts. She excels at helping others become “untangled” and provides her clients with tools to run their businesses smoothly while she takes care of the details behind the scenes. Thus Virtually Untangled was born. A successful business where her work as a top notch creative in graphic and web — with a twist of virtual assistant — married into one amazing place where clients can come with their virtual messes and become magically untangled. Crystal can always make sense of even the most unorganized chaos and offers a virtual detox of order and peace, so her clients can get busy doing the work that they love the most.
