I made it a point to do something I have not done in a while this weekend – RELAX.
I had work to do and client needs to follow up on and packages to send out but compared to my “normal” weekend, this one was a breeze.
I find that as much as I teach people and LEARN on a daily basis from my teachings, one thing I always need help learning to do is to relax, unplug and unwind. As an entrepreneur, it is easy to always be "on" - there is always something to share, a way to promote your business and a way to connect with people via social media or beyond.
As I continue to grow my business and get busier and busier, I am learning the power of taking some time off. It is almost summer and I had to take some time to manage what I want to accomplish this summer and balance that with the needs of my kids AND the fact that I am building my business. This summer will be the one year mark for the launch of my company (July 2015) and I definitely have accomplished a LOT in this (almost) year of business.
What I have done "well":
What I need to do:
I hope to be busy in the Fall launching more of my college and career readiness training and workshops for even more students and to continue to write and publish more books while I build out my reputation on Staten Island as the premier college and career person. I am putting it out there for the universe –this is my plan. I will also try to balance and rest/enjoy the summer while I continue executing my plan of domination in this field…
What do you think of my plan? What about the things I have accomplished so far? This business is consuming and exciting and yet it fits so well into my wheelhouse of skills that it is a passion project for me. I hope to continue to grow and share my lessons as an entrepreneur, executive and educator! Thanks! Happy Hunting!
