Priests take them to write books, study, or discern their faith.
Professors take them to plan, find inspiration and future collaborations, or apply their research to the real world.
So why not entrepreneurs and small business owners?
This "them" of which I speak is a sabbatical, an "extended period of leave from one's customary work, especially for rest, to acquire new skills and training, etc." And I'm taking one.
I've been in the online business space for almost five years now, and in that time, I've worn many hats. I've helped entrepreneurs get published (the wisdom of which is distilled in Lucky Pitch), consulted on social media matters with health professionals and authors, contributed to the conversation on time management, and much more.
Before I entered the online space, I wrote freelance articles, penned a few novels, wrote content for small businesses, and sold handmade jewelry. Oh, and let's not forget, got married, had two kids, and moved five times.
Suffice to say, I need a break.
I need a break to rest from the busy-ness of the last few years.
I need a break to rediscover my personal interests.
I need a break to weather a transition that, one day, eventually, I'll share. (Don't worry, Mom, my marriage is safe and sound!)
I just need a break.
So, I'm taking one.
With luck, I've set you up with enough stuff to help you sort through your money & values until I come back.
(Oh, money, you ask? That's new. And it's a hint as to the direction I plan to go when I come back.)
I created the Money Snapshot, along with a five-day email training, to help you get a clear picture of your finances.
I wrote the Personal Core Values Discovery Workbook—with accompanying video training—so that you can do a deep dive into what makes you tick.
Futureperfect, the 5-day video course to help you marry your Personal Core Values with your Grand Vision, is available for replay (for free!).
And, don't forget, there's ALL the good stuff waiting for you in the Shop.
And so, my loves, I must rest, rejuvenate, and come back stronger so that we can get your money & values sorted. (I also have two more books to write! That's exciting.)
I hope to see you when I return. And until then, I'll be popping up occasionally on Instagram. Come on over and follow me there for bits & pieces of the adventure.
Until we meet again,
