Life Balance: Take a Vacation

It’s the end of August. Have you taken a vacation yet this year? If not, plan one now & reset your energy and enthusiasm for your business. I’ve scoured the Web and here are some fun links that can help you get started on a little life balance.

Try a Girlfriends Getaway, trending up says the Miami Herald.

From SCORE, Renew Yourself as a Leader, take a break.

Still having difficulty with the idea of a vacation. Plan one 12 weeks ahead, now you are at Thanksgiving. Take a few days or a week off and recharge. If you feel you just can’t get away from the business, have a two-day planning retreat and two days off. Mix business with the reward of a great, long weekend.

    my husband and i just got back from our vacation a month ago. i can’t even begin to tell you how much more productive and efficient i am post-vacation compared to pre-vacation. it was a simple, relaxing getaway that was planned only a week in advance. but, since both of us are small business owners, we set the rule that we weren’t allowed to bring work with us and used the time as a chance to simply RELAX and invest back in our marriage. it was amazing and we are both working towards living in that freedom more often.

  2. Now I have a great SCORE resource for women.
