As a busy working woman, finding the motivation to work on your business after a long day can be challenging. But fear not, because today we're sharing five tips to help you get inspired and motivated, even when you're feeling tired and unmotivated. And of course, we’ll sprinkle in some Disney magic along the way to make the journey even more enchanting.

1. Set Realistic Goals

Having a clear vision of what you want to achieve in your business is crucial, but setting realistic and achievable goals is equally important. Break down your big goals into smaller, manageable tasks. Celebrate your accomplishments along the way to stay motivated. Remember, it's okay to adjust your goals to keep them realistic and attainable. Just like Disney's beloved characters, every small victory brings you closer to your happily ever after.

2. Surround Yourself with Inspiration

Creating a positive and inspiring environment can significantly boost your motivation. Make a vision board, listen to inspiring podcasts, or follow successful entrepreneurs on social media. And of course, don’t forget to infuse some Disney inspiration. Whether it’s a Mickey Mouse mug on your desk or a playlist of your favorite Disney tunes, these touches of magic can keep your spirits high.

3. Take Breaks and Recharge

While it’s tempting to work non-stop, taking breaks is essential for maintaining productivity and motivation. Allow yourself to rest and recharge by taking a walk, listening to music, or watching a Disney movie. Remember, even Cinderella took a break to attend the ball. Giving yourself a mental break will help you return to your work with renewed energy and enthusiasm.

4. Find an Accountability Partner or Community

Having someone to share your successes and challenges with can be incredibly motivating. Find an accountability partner or join a community of like-minded women. Join a Facebook group, attend networking events, or find a mentor to guide and support you. Just like how Woody always had Buzz Lightyear, having a support system can make all the difference in your entrepreneurial journey.

5. Remember Your “Why”

Why did you start your business in the first place? What drives and inspires you to keep going? Keeping your “why” in mind can help you stay focused on your goals, even when the going gets tough. Whether it’s the desire to create a better future for your family or the passion for your craft, your “why” is your ultimate motivator. Embrace it and let it guide you, just as Walt Disney's vision led him to create a magical empire.


There you have it—five tips to help you stay motivated and inspired to work on your business. From setting realistic goals to surrounding yourself with inspiration, taking breaks, finding accountability partners, and remembering your “why,” these strategies can help you stay focused and driven.
