Take a break – you deserve it! But first, listen to this episode of the Yay for Business podcast because today I had the pleasure of discussing how and when to take time off with our very own Alison Boons. Alison is our operations manager here at Courtney Chaal HQ.
Taking a holiday or a necessary leave of absence may seem overwhelming and impossible. If you just started your business, you don’t have enough people to keep things running smoothly and you know your clients would freak out if you took time off! I am here to insist that taking a break is not only wonderful and relaxing but also necessary to keep your business alive and well in the long run.
With 15 years of experience in business operations, Alison has worked with many different business models that all needed the same thing: help to streamline, so life and work get easier. In this episode, we cover the basics and beyond of what you need in place to prepare for time off from your business.
Whether you are shutting down the entire team for a forced vacation (and yes, it may be necessary to force your team to take a break!) or you are taking parental leave, fully preparing for a break in your business will give you freedom when you want it and peace of mind if an emergency ever arises. This episode is for solopreneurs, small business entrepreneurs, and CEOs of full-blown companies.
In today’s episode, we’re specifically covering:
- How to sustain and grow your business at any level when you need to take time off
- How to create a business plan to prepare for vacation
- How to specifically prepare your 3 points of business for holiday and leave
- How to ease in and out of vacation mode to help you and your business thrive
This episode is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to taking time off. We are so excited to offer even more information, action, and support to help you make your time off dreams come true – and finally get a taste of that freedom you’ve been craving that made you start your business in the first place. We are hosting an Out Of Office Training for our Yay for 100K clients during the month of October. Click HERE to apply if you want to join our training!
