You unlock the door to your business, turn on the lights, and make the coffee. You organize the cases. You make repairs. You sell your creations. You take out the trash. You close the books. The list goes on and on as you think to yourself, “Man, owning a small business is a ton of work.”
Yet, your small business has its perks. You’re the boss, after all. You get to take vacation whenever you want (in theory, anyway). You choose the inventory you want to sell and incorporate your own philosophies into the business.
So when’s the last time you spent some time away? How often do you afford yourself the space to rethink and re-energize your business?
