After all these years of posting daily, developing content ideas that help you build a more substantial business, and being involved in many different programs under the imaging umbrella, I've hit the wall. And as I've written so many times, it's important to recognize when you're about to crash and burn.
Several times a year, I write about the importance of taking a break BEFORE you crash. Each time, I've gotten some amazing comments from many of you about how timely my topic was and how much you needed to be reminded. What's ironic is how little of my own advice I actually listen to!
This is a very short post today. I want to remind you that while I talk a good game and have years of experience to share with you, too often, it's really tough to follow through. I want to help you grow your business, avoiding many of the mistakes so many of us have made, but I'm still making mistakes myself. We're all work in progress.
The hardest thing to do in business is recognize you need a break. But, with the help of some great friends coming down to Florida on Sunday, I've got all the right ingredients.
The usual me would feel I was being irresponsible, but the truth is, it's the most responsible thing I can do today. The perfect way to avoid the "heat" of those flames when you're about to crash and burn is simply to do something you love doing. For me and Sheila, it involves each other, good friends, the pups, and always the ocean.
See you on October 9!
