As entrepreneurs, as humans really, we feel the drive to go, go, go and heaven forbid we go into “hibernation” for a season. In Episode 131, I share about a holistic approach to business. In this episode, I encourage you to re-evaluate your business goals and purpose. Why are you doing what you do? What are your metrics of success? Stop feeling guilty taking time off to live life and enjoy friends and family. We cannot always be in a constant season of spring. We need a season of wintering to formulate new ideas, enjoy life and for rest. Listen in for more tips and encouragement for you, the creative entrepreneur!

Now I am ready to do the work. Thank you!
