Are You Forming, Storming, Norming or Performing? | Lifestyle By Laptop

There is a terminology used in leadership and team building that states that all members of a team will go through a process of Forming, Storming, Norming and finally Performing. And that each team member can repeat the different stages at different times.

But as a solopreneur and someone that is running their own business without a team, what does that mean for you?

I believe that we too go through those stages but slightly differently!

Let me explain…


This is when we first start our business, we have huge hopes and dreams and are really motivated to make it happen.

To get stuff done!

To succeed and win!

We put in so many hours, working towards our dream and we are so inspired and motivated!


This is the part where we question our reality!

Have we made the right choices?

Can we make this work?

We haven’t seen the instant success we were hoping for and we start to lose hope and motivation and wonder if it’s all worth it!

 Normally if you have a team around you, those people are there to support and inspire you!

To lift you back up!

To get you back on track!


“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” ―Thomas Edison


Norming and Performing-

These stages will only occur if you can keep going!

If you can use the support structure around you, to help create the inspiration and hope you need to keep going!


“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.” ―Dale Carnegie


Unfortunately, as solopreneurs we usually find ourselves in a place of feeling alone!

We work alone!

We accomplish alone!

And although our family and friends can be supportive, they don’t really understand…


For this reason, the team at Lifestyle by Laptop have not only created a platform to help guide you through every process to create your dream business but we have also created online communities of people exactly like you!

They are you!

With the same dreams, the same needs and the same issues as you face!

If you are struggling, to keep the hope…
The motivation to move forward….
Please reach out, we are here to help!
