How to Grow a Business: Take a break

August 3, 2022

Filed in: business basics

It is okay to take a break. Do you feel guilty if you take a day off because you are so busy trying to grow a business? 

What if I told you it’s not just okay to take a break, but it is necessary?

This year I had a major realization. I had always bragged about how I always worked and never took a day off. You know, I wore my busy like a badge of honor like we all do.

Then my sweet husband took me to the beach for my birthday, and I did nothing work-related. We read fiction, ordered take out, got off social media, walked on the beach, went for a run, and just enjoyed the view. 

And do you know what happened? 

My creativity exploded. I got home feeling refreshed but also had a ton of new ideas for my business. Taking the time to get away from the to-do list and give myself space to create new ideas was crucial to moving forward in my business, and I didn’t even know that was what I needed. 

Are you giving yourself a break and the white space you need to grow?
