The Do's and Don'ts of a WorkCation

Today’s Podcast is a mix of exactly what I hoped that this podcast would become….


A place to share stories and growth as a mom, wife, business woman and serial entrepreneur!

 

If you’re new here, I’m a mom of 4 kids ages 6, 4, 2, and 6 months. I’m also the face and visionary of a multi-million dollar business and we co-founded a rapidly growing school in our community. 

 

…It’s a lot….. 

…It’s also wonderful……

…But it’s overwhelming….

…And yet so rewarding. 

 

Our life is so full and we love it but I have found that my mega-tasks on my to-do list keep getting pushed back day after day. I hit the point where I looked at these tasks and said, “I don’t know if this is ever going to happen!” 

 

That’s where the concept of a “workcation” comes in.

 

…I needed a personal retreat where I was not needed by anyone to focus on my most vital tasks and so I made it happen. 

 

It took work and planning and it was an investment of time, childcare costs and a hotel stay but I got the majority of my work done and I learned a VALUABLE lesson during my time away! 

 

In today’s podcast episode I’m sharing what worked, what didn’t and my big takeaway that is allowing me to have more organization and grace with my weekly to-do list! 

 

If you’re struggling to balance the demands of your personal life with the demands of your business, this may be just what you need!!
