Hello from Turkey!
This is your sign you need a break too! (If you haven’t had one already).
YOU DESERVE ONE!
You know I always keep it real, I needed this. I’ve been craving to get away from the day to day pressures, be near the sea, lap up the sunshine and let my brain have a little break. But not just me, the whole family, running a business has a knock on effect the closest people to you. Poor sods are second-handedly dragged along for the business-owning rollercoaster. So we are all enjoying some well-needed family time and celebrating my mum’s 60th!
Burnout is a real thing. Us business owners have a talent for going on ‘auto-pilot’, we just carry on. I feel like sometimes people wear the ‘burnout’ badge as a badge of honor. But, it really isn’t.
In the industry we’re in, we know the importance of wellness and self-care. But we don’t necessarily follow our own advice. Who’s guilty?
The pressures of being a business owner are something we can all relate to. BUT let’s not forget we all have a personal life too! We all have stuff going on in the background that no one else sees, except maybe our nearest and dearest.
What’s that saying? You can’t keep pouring from an empty cup! If you’re not taking care of yourself, mentally, physically, emotionally, or spiritually – your business won’t thrive as it should. It needs you to be in control of that driving seat.
I will never take for granted that now I have everything in place back in the UK, it means I can jet off with my family, I can take that time out, have a break, and recharge.
If you’re reading this and think “I could really do with a break, but I don’t know how I could make that happen” – Let’s talk. Contact me with what is holding you back from taking the break you deserve, and I will get back to you directly to help you figure out how to change that, give you the tools to get there, and support you along the way.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
Speak soon, Katie Godfrey xx
