Welcome back to episode #207! I can’t believe I am saying this, but we are right around the corner from spring break and just a hop, skip and a jump away from SUMMER break! Whoa, where did the time go? There is another change that comes along with spring and summer break besides the brighter skies and warmer temperature, and that is YOUR SCHEDULE!

If we want to have a successful break, we need to be clear about setting the intention of what exactly we want it to look like ahead of time! Which is exactly what I am going to help you do today by sharing 3 simple steps to get you through this process.

I realized it really came down to 3 simple steps…” At minute 2:46, the first thing we need to do is create a plan so let’s discuss what YOU actually want for this break. I’m sharing what I decided to do during my girls spring break and how things lined up! Plus I’m talking a little bit about summer, work schedules and family trips.

“Squeeze in that work time so you don’t have to feel guilty when the kids are home…” At 12:58, I’m talking about what it means to be intentional. If you know you need time off to recharge – follow through with it and take time off. I’m sharing a few of the things I like to do to recharge and relax and how to take a working break with a few screen & tablet free ideas to keep the kids busy!

“It is usually not in execution, but it is in the preparation…” At minute 23:22, I’m explaining why the preparation for anything is SO important including a break and setting up systems to make sure you don’t have to completely shut down your business.

“The type of break you take is really important to the health of your business and your family…” At 32:28 I’m doing a quick recap of the 3 steps. 

P.S. we have one of our most popular programs coming back…The Profit Mastermind! If you know you don’t have systems in place to truly take breaks and your business really can’t run without you, I highly suggest you think about joining our 4th round of The Profit Mastermind. This is going to be a small class of only 25 ladies building systems in their business without leaving money on the table or worse, reimbursing people. They can take a vacation and check out, they can work part time in summer without earning apart time income. If you want to be added to the waitlist to find out when these spots will be released go to, for more info!
