Your Business Won’t Spontaneously Combust Between Christmas + New Years

LISTEN ON

With the holidays quickly approaching, the week between Christmas and New Years can seem like the most hectic time for business owners. How are we supposed to prepare for year-end + focus on the new year all while trying to spend quality time with our family and create memories? It’s easy to feel the pull, and the guilt of what we should be doing in our business-  frantically checking and refreshing emails- and what we should be doing with our family (aka lounging, snacking on delicious meals, and wondering what day of the week it is). 

 

In today’s episode, I am going to share why your business won’t spontaneously combust if you take the week off between Christmas and New Years and some easy tips for setting boundaries during your downtime. 

 

 

TIP #1: TURN YOUR OUT OF OFFICE ON

Write a cute little holiday message, and let your clients know when you will be back in the office. I promise you, there will be ZERO emergencies between now and then. By setting the boundary and letting your clients know should they email you– you’re providing the customer service we all strive for. 

 

TIP #2: DON’T WORRY ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA

Plan a holiday post, and then delete the app for a bit. I promise NOT sharing your services, or ways to work with you is not going to make or break your business.  Likely your ideal clients are also off social media and with their families as well. So save that hard-hitting business post for 2023, where it’s likely to gain the traction it deserves anyways!

 

TIP #3: LOCK AWAY YOUR WORK COMPUTER 

I’m sure that course you bought over Black Friday is super enticing to do on this week off, but is it really time off? From experience, if you do try to tackle that business course, you likely aren’t going to be putting the energy behind it that it deserves. Any action steps needed to take will likely slip off your to-do list. I recommend waiting until 2023 to tackle that project.
