About this Episode

My secret’s out. There’s a practice from my corporate days that I stole. I think it’s so good, you should try it too!

Companies hold retreats for their employees all the time. It’s a thing, right? Yet as entrepreneurs, it’s easy to think it’s too expensive, it’s a waste of time or it’s too indulgent.

But what happens when you change your environment, focus on treating yourself and give you and your business the time and love it deserves?

I’ve just wrapped up my own business staycation, and the response from my community was so strong, that this episode is devoted to sharing what exactly I was up to in my hotel room with my multi colored poster boards and markers!

You’ll hear why it’s integral for, when and where it should happen and who should be involved.

I also outline what exactly went down in mine, right down to the four poster boards I created: dreams, what’s working and what’s not, revenue goals and content plan.

After this brainstorming session and a good night’s sleep, I woke up refreshed and ready to create my implementation plan. Out came my calendar and I plugged in how to best make my plans come to life.

It’s normal to have a little voice in the back of your mind telling you this is a waste of time, that you don’t really need to have a business staycation. But that voice wants you to play safe, and knows that devoting time like this to your business is a chance to be bold and dream big.

This is a chance to combine self-care with business strategy. If that’s not balancing the head and the heart of business, I don’t know what is!
