Vacations are assumed to be “skippable” but it’s incredible how important these are for us — our hearts, souls, and minds — , even if you only look at it from a work productivity sense. I was reminded when I finally took a break the creativity flowed over. I accomplished much because I had the freedom from work to see a better vision.

Pulling out of the trees to see the forest at large, getting to those other things you’ve always wanted to, or simply resting your mind to ready yourself to jump back in. It’s all so easy to understand, yet I rarely do it. When I do, I’m terrified of all the worst case scenarios that “will” go wrong.

Good thing vacations help prove me wrong. I’m ready to dive back in. Get set. Go.

I love helping companies scale and grow their organizations to delight customers and employees, enabling healthy teams, fast growth, and fewer headaches. Scaling quickly is wrought with potholes and plot twists. When you’re running a company, losing customers, and employees are on their way out, and don’t have your systems running smoothly, then you’ll be at your wits' end. I've been there and hate it.
