what to do when you want to walk away or burn it all down

As a female business owner like myself if you are anything similar to me on this topic I have for sure had moments in my business(es) journey(ies) where I wanted to walk away or burn it all down. 

I know it might sound extreme to use the word burn it, and I do not mean to actually burn anything in the physical form. What I do mean is letting it all go and going back to corporate. 

This is a vulnerable topic for me because I often have guilt or shame attached to these feelings, too and I need to let those feelings go.  

The guilt and shame come from acknowledging that yes I love my business and clients, yet some days I feel burnt out or maxed out more than usual and want to coast a little more, hence the thought creeps in about going back to corporate or taking more time off.

By coasting I mean, working for someone else.

The someone else being a “boss”. Someone else is a person who is carrying all the loads and worries, and I’m just maintaining and doing my little slice of the pie, also known as my job responsibilities.

In this article, I go into detail about coming out of wanting to “burn it all down” and going into feeling grateful, excited, motivated, and happy in your business.

The number one thing you can do is to –> Find A Like-Minded And High-Frequency Group To Be In For Your Business.

Many successful people and beyond in wealth and freedom, for example, spend their time differently – they spend more time focusing on personal growth, planning for investments and working, and less time hanging out. 

These are some of the areas you can also connect with Empire Life Instagram, Quora, Pinterest, and the Facebook Group.

I have written many professional blog articles about making a huge impact and scaling your business here, here, and here.

The following are areas I will focus on during this article:

1 Find A Like-Minded And High-Frequency Group To Be In For Your Business

2 Get Laser Focused On What Needs To Be Done

3 Become Aware Of Your Money Mindset

4 Having A wealth Mindset Also Can Mean Believing In Yourself More, Your Value, And Your Ability To Deliver

1 Find A Like-Minded And High-Frequency Group To Be In For Your Business

Like minded groups could be masterminds, Facebook Groups, small groups that meet in person, small group online, and more.

In these groups that have a similar goal everyone can benefit from working towards this goal or individual similar goals together and getting support from the group.

2 Get Laser Focused On What Needs To Be Done

Having that single focus also helps filter out the distractions that can otherwise bog down founders to the point of less progress. That’s why it’s so important for them to learn how to say no to things that are outside the particular challenge they’re solving.

Having a laser focus can be great to accomplish one task at a time well, and knowing when to outsource tasks.

Everyday, especially when you start to feel overwhelmed, find three top things you need to do, to move the needle forward, and focus on getting those done in the day.

3 Become Aware Of Your Money Mindset

Most people do not create or get what they truly want because they do not take the time to understand what it is they truly want or desire or can acknowledge it fully because of previous traumas, money blocks, generational patterns, and more. 

Therefore, if they took their time or did some money mindset healing and work to be able to acknowledge and decide what it is they are truly going for, there will be a much higher chance of them getting it and achieving it. There is a lot about money mindset in our best-selling book, REDEFINE.

Usually, people with a wealth (abundance) mindset are clear that they want wealth, success, and oftent times more freedom. 

They are unwavering in their desires. They are fully committed to creating wealth. As long as it is legal, moral, and ethical, they will do what it takes to have wealth. People with a wealth (abundance) mindset do not send mixed messages to the universe. 

The third level of wanting is “I commit to being wealthy.” 

The definition of the word “commit” is to “devote oneself unreservedly.”  

This means going all in; giving 110 percent of everything you have to achieve wealth.

It means being willing to do what it takes for as long as it takes. 

This is the champion’s way. No ifs, no buts, or maybes. 

Failure is not an option, nor is it the end or final curtain closing. Failure means we need to try again.

In my experience, getting wealthy takes courage, focus, a never-give-up attitude (resilience), expertise, knowledge, 110 percent of one’s effort, and, of course, an abundance mindset.

Are you willing to work seven days a week, giving up some of your weekends? People are on the path to building wealth and already wealthy people are doing this currently. 

Are you willing to sacrifice (at least sometimes) seeing your friends, and your family, and giving up (at least temporarily), hobbies, and fun activities? Most people on the path to wealth or who are already wealthy people are already doing this. 

Are you willing to risk all your time, energy, and start-up capital with no guarantee of returns? A lot of people are on the path to wealth-building and wealthy people often already are doing this.

This can be a good reminder of how you need to increase your personal and professional value –> most of the time you will be paid in direct proportion to the value you create in the marketplace.

How do you want to live your life? 

Are you going to play big or play small in your life and your business? 

Are you going to live a high-level life, regardless of the opportunities and circumstances you have been given, and create your opportunities and new circumstances? 

It’s your choice.

If you have a wealth (abundance) mindset, you know your life is not just about you. 

It’s also about contributing and building communities

It’s about living true to your mission and reason for being here on this earth at this time. 

It’s about adding your piece and voice to the world.

If you want to be wealthy in the truest sense of the word, it cannot only be about you. 

It has to include adding value to other people’s lives. 

Some examples of these are yet not limited to → This can mean leaving a legacy for your family, starting a non-profit foundation for a cause that is dear to you, going to non-profit foundations events or being on the board of one, volunteering at a local animal shelter, and more. 

Just remember to have great boundaries around where and how you will invest your money, or give back to causes you support!

After you worked hard to build wealth or someone in your family worked hard to build wealth for you to have, be protective about where you decide to invest it.

Part of our higher purposes in life is hoping to share our gifts with as many people as possible. 

That means being willing to be big, to have a voice, and to take up a lot of space.

Wealth in a more general sense encompasses more than only financial wealth. 

As we share our gifts and support others, the “wealthier” we become — mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially.

People often in a lack mindset see potential loss and are driven by a fear-based voice.

Wealthy people often see areas where there can be potential growth, and they can take responsibility for the results in their lives, and act upon the mindset that, “It will work because I’ll make it so. I will never give up, I might take a break, yet I will keep coming back to it.” 

Wealthy people are often committed to doing whatever it takes.

Sometimes it can come down to this question: If not you, then who?


For the female businesses who are scaling, who are already making over $20,000USD-$40,000USD per month, there needs to be a different and unique level of support, just for you. This leads me to our mastermind (doors opening soon!!), and masterminds in general to be a part of, contact us and apply here.


Millionaires and beyond, wealth-builders, spend most of their lives sacrificing temporary pleasures for long-term success. 

They have no problem buying an older used car, living in a modest neighborhood, and wearing inexpensive clothes. 

They don’t care about keeping up with the Joneses.

These decisions might allow them to do things such as save for retirement and college, invest more into their business(es), start a non-profit, and build up a large down payment for their dream home. 

They often realize that instant gratification can be fun → yet delayed gratification is so much better in the long-term and worth it.

4 Having A wealth Mindset Also Can Mean Believing In Yourself More, Your Value, And Your Ability To Deliver

The difference between wealth (abundance) and lack of mindset often comes into play when people are faced with a problem.

Wealthy people often spend their time and energy strategizing and planning the answers to challenges that come up and creating systems to make certain that those problems don’t occur again.

There is a guide here on on our website all about raising prices.


Have you joined Quora yet? To speak your mind, ask questions, and display yourself as an expert there.


A great visualization is to: 

Think of ourselves as containers for wealth, love, happiness, and more. 

If our containers are small and our money starts to be bigger than the container, what’s going to happen? 

We will be unable to hold it. 

Therefore we must grow to be a bigger and bigger container then we will be able to hold more wealth, also attract more wealth, and happiness, and anything we decide to be able to hold and attract.


With heavily investing in ourselves there is also no need to invest in multiple online courses which are not geared for the woman scaling her business. 

There are mastermind and online courses primarily for a female founder who is just starting. Where we guide them in finding and solidifying their ideal client, their client avatar, and hone in on their exact message, their true essence and bring this to the world, in our Empire Life Blueprint Online Course, here.


Those with a lack of mindsets don’t often believe that they can deliver what they said they would, or do not think about taking a risk to say what they can deliver and then ask to be paid and flow in their monetary value for this either. 

Money is important! Often money is energetic too. We need money to flow and to gain a lot to often meet our goals. 

To say that it’s not as important as other things in life is false, and one of the first blocks a lot of people have when releasing and rewiring money blocks is to analyze what they say about money, also known as, their relationship with money

In regards to life and business → money brings freedom and autonomy. 

Some yet not limited to – these freedoms are: to buy what you want, and the freedom to do what you want with your time. 

Also, having a flow of money in, allows you not to have to spend your energy worrying about not having money.

Money is a big part of your life, and when you learn how to get your finances under control, all areas of your life will soar.
