How to Take Time Off From Your Business

How to Take Time Off From Your BusinessToday I want to talk to you about taking time off, for the sake of your business.

When I first started, I planned out my schedule the way I wanted to live my life. I made it a point to set up my business so that I’d take a full day off per week, a week off per month and at least one month off per year—approximately 18 weeks of vacation per year. (Everybody needs down time to succeed.)

And for a while, that was my life and it was wonderful. I was incredibly productive when I was working and the rejuvenating time off gave me more creativity, until I got busier and busier and started multiplying my business. That’s when I hired full-time employees who counted on me to be there and to drive this train. So I stopped taking as much time off, feeling like I had a job again and I became resentful about it. But not anymore.

Every entrepreneur needs time off in their business to experience success. (Click here to tweet this.)

Let’s be honest. When it’s your business, it’s hard to shut off, right? There is no such thing as a completed to-do list and entrepreneurs often blur the lines between business and personal time. But if you want to be client attractive and you want to multiply your income, whether you’ve been in business for many years or are just ramping up, you must have down time.

  1. Fabienne I have to give a BIG thank you for this video. Recovering Type A workaholic here that often needs to step back and remember this basic necessity.

    With two small kids and a super busy business it’s so easy to get caught up in things and then look at the clock and release it’s 1 am! I have to laugh but in reality taking that time away is the most valuable thing any entrepreneur can do. Tip 5 is one I often violate, I am my own biggest offender :) I’m off to block my calendar. ~Erin
