How to Take a Sabbatical From Your Business

HELLO | TWELVE, jUNE 2019

TGIF, Happy Friday! I am back in the office this week, fresh off a 3 week sabbatical-- my first! It was quite detoxifying and I am happy to report it was also a success. Thanks to a lot of planning, delegation and accountability, I was able to completely step away from running my business for three whole weeks and watch it run without me... and nothing blew up! It was divinely indulgent. Want to do the same?

Below are my tips to make this happen:

Too Busy to Grow?

HELLO | TWELVE, january 2019

 

TGIF, Happy Friday welcome to a shiny new quarter! A client once said to me, "If I could spend half as much time on half as many things, I would be twice as effective." This thought while profound, is a trend we see over and over again in our work. The endless wheel-spinning of urgent but lower-value work distracts us, especially in times of growth it becomes amplified because our time is not just focused on innovating but on delivering.

How To LOVE Your Work

HELLO | TWELVE, january 2019

 

Happy Friday and February to you! It's the month of love and there's not much that can top the fulfilling feeling of doing work that inspires you. One of my favorite entrepreneurial thought leaders, Dan Sullivan of Strategic Coach® teaches that "the most successful people are those who have learned how to focus on and leverage their unique strengths. In other words, they build their lives around their abilities, not their disabilities." He began talking about his realizations as “Unique Ability®," the essence of what you love to do and naturally do best.

Let it go!

HELLO | TWELVE, january 2019

 

Happy Friday and welcome to the start of another amazing year together! 2018 will be so hard to top, but this year, I personally am focusing on "taking the time to take it in." This means extending the energy to be present, it means hyperfocusing on what I am saying yes to and being willing to say no to most everything else.

A New Addition to Our Family

HELLO | TWELVE, NOVEMBER 2018

Happy Friday and welcome to the start of another beautiful month! I hope this gorgeous Fall season is treating you well. This time 12 years ago, I was about to have my son Nathan. As a mom, I remember the planning, the labor, the delivery and the sudden "parent" status - all of it a whirlwind experience. As an entrepreneur, bringing a new service or product line to market carries a similar weight for me. The excitement, joy, challenge and uncertainty all mirror my path into motherhood all those years ago.

3 Easy Ways CEOS can Unplug and Unwind by Being Prepared

Just because summer is winding down, doesn’t mean your dreams of a vacation have to escape with it! You are at the heart of your business, and you set the tone for the rest of your team to create time and space to rejuvenate and re-charge. As entrepreneurial leaders, it’s so easy to get wrapped up in the “rugged individualist” persona, because it’s true: we make stuff happen better than most.  Unfortunately, this mindset comes at a cost to our personal lives, our health and our other aspirations.  It’s important to be aware of this dynamic, lead by example and take some time off! It doesn’t have to be scary or painful if you commit to a bit of planning and prep prior to your departure from the office.

Living the Flexwork Dream … at Delegate!

When we think about working remotely, and what it means to our work/life balance, a number of thoughts come to mind.  It’s awesome to have flexibility in our career, create our own schedule and have freedom and autonomy to make it our own day.  For morning people, we get up early and are hard at work before the sun comes up and for those of us who are night owls, we quiet the chaos of the day and settle in to work during the peaceful moments when everyone else is asleep.   Juggling kids, chores and commitments of daily life, all while making money, is an art form; one that we at Delegate thrive on and LOVE.

Happy Friday and Happy Holidays!  One of my goals for 2017 was to ENJOY DECEMBER!  Sounds funny, but December has always been an incredibly stressful month for me personally.  For the last decade, Christmas has always taken a backseat to other priorities like celebrating my son's birthday, holiday planning for Delegate, all of this on top of the normal holiday stress. So I created a plan of how I can make sure I enjoy this beautiful month.. so far so good!  I'll update you in January as to how I did and hopefully share my strategy for success!  :)

The Cost of Churn in Small Business

Another summer is now in the books, and wow, what an intense summer it's been for us here at Delegate. My team has been pushed to the max as we’ve navigated some really tricky stuff! Collectively, we showed up and pulled together as a team to help out. I’m proud and grateful for each of my team members! 

As an entrepreneur, finding and retaining talent is one of the most crucial parts of growing your business. Because we have small teams, getting it right equates to growth and getting it wrong leads down a cyclic path of lost energy spent hiring, training and re-training. All of which kills productivity and profitability, costing us time (limited), money (limited) and leading to burnout (boo!).
