I am so passionate about this topic: scheduling time off in your business…. you want to know why?

haleakala-katandjasonBecause I didn’t do this for the longest time. I didn’t take a real vacation for years in my starter marriage or in my business….is that ridiculous or what?

Hopefully you don’t need this reminder but I’ll bet there are many more of you like me than not. And vacations don’t mean you have to spend a ton of cash. If you’re on a limited budget or you don’t even have a budget for “fun or vacations” just yet that doesn’t mean you can’t make more money to PUT them into the budget.

Don’t limit yourself. Give yourself something to look forward to for all the hard work you’re putting in. Don’t get burned out or ignore your loved ones. You can do it!!!

There were a bunch of photos on Facebook along with a few Facebook Live videos from our trip to Maui – did you catch them? A few people said they were enjoying a vacation vicariously through our photos which was cool. Here’s a few pics we snapped!
kat2-greenOne of the things that I want to talk with you today about and I recorded a video for you on is how to manage your schedule and your business so that you could take more vacations and time off easier.
I get that it may not be easy to think of taking a vacation if your business isn’t totally up and running, profitable or even systematized enough to run without you when you go…..BUT that is NO EXCUSE!


You need to make time for some kind of release, unplugging, stress relief, etc. or you may end up getting really burned out.


Check out the video below for more detail about how YOU can schedule more time off, freedom and vacations for yourself and your Business!

Do you realize that if you go too long without making time for a vacation then you could burn out, get resentful or worse…get divorced!?

So many business owners and entrepreneurs are working way too hard and not taking enough time off or taking vacations even.

Kat and family on vacationWe just got back from week long vacation in San Diego and no one died and nothing bad happened in my business or with any of my clients. You can do this…I was even totally UNPLUGGED!
This picture is of us at the Hotel Del Coronado; my mom was able to join us on this trip too. We didn’t take a whole lot of pictures though as most of the time it was bathing suit attire LOL.
I highly recommend taking a week off at least once or twice a year though; it does a lot for your motivation and your soul both.
  • Maybe you think you can’t afford to take a vacation?
  • Maybe you think a vacation has to look a certain way and haven’t considered other ways of taking time off and getting UNPLUGGED?

Either way, it’s true, you could do yourself and your relationships some real damage if you don’t figure out a way to stop working all the time (I know many of you are) and take time out for yourself and your family.

Did you take a vacation yet this year? If not….WHY???

  • Are you too busy?
  • Are you not making enough money and feel like you just have to keep on working and working to make more first?

Well STOP IT! Take a vacation will ya?!

It will do you good, it will do your loved ones good and it will do your soul good….it’s worth it.

And you can do an inexpensive vacation, the price doesn’t matter, it’s the time off UNPLUGGED THAT DOES!

Watch my video today for a couple quick tips….on the day after my most recent vacation. 😉

Here are a few inexpensive types of vacations you could take (for those where money is an obstacle):

  1. Camping – I can’t say that I love camping but I do enjoy it. I need some basic necessities however, I can’t just go with a tent and a duffle bag or hiking and stuff….but camp sites aren’t that much depending on the time of year. All you need is really food to go with it which you’d be eating anyway right?
  2. Visiting family – I realize some of you would love this but others of you don’t consider this a “vacation”; however it is time away and you’d have a place to stay to save money! Plus you’ll win points with your family too and may not have to attempt another visit in a long while or now it would be their turn!
  3. A Staycation – Yes that means staying home but then you could do fun trips to the neighborhood pool, parks, lake, have a picnic, go to the ocean if it’s nearby or the mountains, go hiking, biking and more. Just remember to truly UNPLUG and not work if you’re taking this time off.

Here are 3 ways to engage with me further and get the support and training that you can use to jumpstart your business FAST:
