117: Tips for Scheduling Time off as a High-Achieving Business Owner


We all need a break sometimes. 

You may have noticed that I didn’t release a new episode last week. While I don’t plan to make a habit of that, it was much needed. Life has been full of a lot of transitions for my family lately and there has been a lot going on with my business, so I was at my max. 

With that said, in this week’s episode of The Leading Lady Podcast, I am talking about the importance of taking a break. You don’t need to wait for an opening to get a break or a “good time” to take a vacation, you can schedule these breaks or vacations into your life whenever you need them. 

I know it can seem impossible to do because, as entrepreneurs and high-achieving women, we are never away or cut off from our businesses, and we are the decision-makers so it’s hard to step away like that, but what you need to do is plan ahead so that you can take a successful break. 

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • The importance of taking breaks
  • Why we need to schedule breaks instead of waiting for a “good time” 
  • How to make these breaks successful
  • How communication will help set you up for a successful vacation
  • Setting healthy boundaries

Balance is so important. Remember, you can afford to schedule vacations for yourself because you can create systems to make sure you never feel like the ball is going to drop if you’re away.

If you have any questions or feel like you desperately need to make time to take a vacation or a break from your business, don’t hesitate to reach out! Let’s talk about it, make a plan, and set up those systems for you so that you can go with peace of mind and know that you have a plan in place so that you can recharge and still stay on top of your work.
