Video Biz Tip: Scheduling time off in your business

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-4-03-27-pm

I am so passionate about this topic: scheduling time off in your business.... you want to know why? Because I didn't do this for the longest time. I didn't take a real vacation for years in my starter marriage or in my business....is that ridiculous or what? Hopefully you don't need this reminder but I'll bet there are many more of you like me than not. And vacations don't mean you have to spend a ton of cash.

Give yourself something to look forward to for all the hard work you're putting in. Don't … [Read more...]
