About this Episode

There's a trend I’ve noticed with entrepreneurs who find success: it's DILIGENCE. Discipline. They’re playing the long game.

As such, it’s a marathon, not a sprint. And sometimes in a marathon, we must pace ourselves.

BUT we must use caution here — sometimes “taking a break” can turn into hanging out at the water station for a while which turns into, eh I don’t need to finish this race anyway, I think I’ll just quietly quit.

So what’s a stressed out, exhausted, emotionally spent entrepreneur to do? We don’t want to quit, and we don’t want to burn out. How do we do this dance?

In this solocast episode, I'm exploring the space between pressing pause and powering through. I'm talking about how to take "a break with guidelines" -- it's a super honest episode about my current season, what I've learned, and what I did wrong.
