You're fucking amazing + I'm taking time off

Do you remember a few weeks ago when I wrote about work + life balance? Yea? Well here's a perfect example of it. I'm working this week with a few clients, going to the office Christmas party Thursday night and then taking time off. You want to know why? Because I have earned it and I'm the boss. I've also finished most of my Christmas shopping + sent all my client gifts. Go me!

I hope that you remember that you are fucking amaze balls + deserve time off too!

Research proves that taking breaks {probably not a week's worth break but who’s really keeping track} increases productivity. So here I am spending time with friends + family during this holiday season and enjoying myself. As entrepreneurs we are always building our empires + we don't have regular 9 to 5 corporate jobs but we keep crazy busy schedules with client meetings, investor meetings, creative meetings, ALL the meetings so we always have a lot going on. But we feel shameful for taking time to ourselves when we could be doing more for our businesses. I ain’t gonna sweat it though + am taking that well earned break. So should you! Because you are fucking amazing! {Don't let any one tell you differently!}

Fun fact: It is also said to be that people who procrastinate aren't really putting off their work but their brain is actually thinking about how to finish or fix the problem. So I'm not really putting things off until later, my brain is just working more efficiently on getting everything done. That’s my story + I’m sticking to it.

I hope you have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday season and a Happy New Years! At some point over the holidays hit comment + let me know what would feel like a miracle for you + your business next year. You can procrastinate that if you want. I know your brain is just thinking effectively how we can work together next year ;).
