Did you realize you need to run away from your business? That it could be one of the best things you ever did for it?
My blog post today for Inspire Photo Retreats is all about the things I learned when I did this myself last year.
Last year, I left home for what ended up being a 4 month, 19,000+ mile road trip. It wasn’t planned to be that long when I left, but as work found me along the way, I kept going. We left home originally so I could attend the World Domination Summit in Portland, visit family there, and then head to Seattle to see Mike’s brother and his family. After that, Mike was going to fly home, I’d drive back to Denver, park my car to fly to speak at BlogHer in Chicago, fly back to Denver to coach at the Team-X Fight Club, and then drive home.
When Fight Club ended was when it all began. I needed … something. I needed to get away. To unplug. To quiet the noise.
It is incredibly hard to admit that I completely neglected my business for those two weeks. As I reflect back on it, I realize it was one of the smartest moves I’ve made recently.
Go read the post there to learn more about the lessons I learned.
The biggest thing that came out of getting back to work? I went on to Calgary and met up with Stephanie and we created our Life + Business Coaching Program, Vivid & Brave.
It may be hard to admit, but I have no regrets.
When was the last time you took a vacation from your business? Have you ever completely cut yourself off and allowed yourself to recharge?
