I shared in an earlier newsletter to followers how I ended up working on my last vacation, leaving me frustrated and anxious. One of the many things I love about structure in my business is that I can take time off.
Today I’m writing from Key West, Florida. It’s a beautiful island where a little lizard climbs the walls of the hotel, roosters caw at all hours of the day and night, and it’s so hard to describe but imagine a luscious garden paradise surrounded by sparkling waters and beautiful resort islands.
And here I am, fresh out of the pool, still dripping, and all I can think of is my business. Not in the same way of my last vacation when I was submerged in worry and doubts and knew that things were not running smoothly in my absence. Not worried that my vacation would lead to even more stress upon returning home because there would be a mess to clean up.
Instead I’m outside next to this cute little tiki bar listening to the parrots talk and feeling the sun on my skin because I can’t wait to do what I do more.
Spending this time in Florida has helped me connect deeper to why I do what I do and filled me with a passion that’s overflowing. It’s something I can’t turn off, even when there’s a beach to visit, a tour to take or the pool to enjoy.
Imagine yourself in my place at the Miami Trump International Hotel, 30th floor with a view of the Atlantic Ocean.
Now imagine not swimming in this ocean because it would mean giving up an hour with the fantastic, inspiring people who remind you exactly why you’re in business.
I know why I created this business and pour everything I have into it: entrepreneurs are some of the most talented, dedicated people in business and without systems, structure and support in their business they will burn out. They will play smaller. And thousands of clients will go unserved.
The work I do lifts up businesses to give them leverage so they can continue to impact lives.
And I’m committed to sharing that with you all for a long time to come. If you haven’t done so sign up for my newsletter (which resumes next week) and check back for more tips and techniques for your own business.
