How I’m Prepping to Take a Month Off: Episode 362

In this episode I’m sharing how I’m prepping to take a month off… Yep. A MONTH! If you didn’t know, I have something called Slipping Rib Syndrome, which came about after years of playing volleyball. It was misdiagnosed for 16 years and now I finally have a diagnosis, a surgeon, and a surgery scheduled. It’s been a journey, but as I’m prepping to travel to West Virginia for my surgery, I knew I didn’t want to worry about my business. I want to take time to rest and recover properly. While you might not be getting rib surgery in the near future, you might have something coming up that you wanted to take off an extended amount of time for. Family, holidays, vacation, etc. And I’m here to tell you it IS POSSIBLE! Here are the things I do to prep for that month off.

Yep. A MONTH!

If you didn’t know, I have something called Slipping Rib Syndrome, which came about after years of playing volleyball. It was misdiagnosed for 16 years and now I finally have a diagnosis, a surgeon, and a surgery scheduled.

It’s been a journey, but as I’m prepping to travel to West Virginia for my surgery, I knew I didn’t want to worry about my business. I want to take time to rest and recover properly.

While you might not be getting rib surgery in the near future, you might have something coming up that you wanted to take off an extended amount of time for. Family, holidays, vacation, etc. And I’m here to tell you it IS POSSIBLE!

Here are the things I do to prep for that month off.

 

My Non Negotiables (2:30)

In my business, there’s not a ton of things I solely am responsible for. I look at what I need to prep in advance, and what I can batch. I make a list of my non negotiable in business. No, I don’t need to sell a new course or do a launch every single week, but what DOES need to happen every week?

  • Email my list weekly
  • Text our texting list
  • Podcast episode go out weekly
  • Coaching programs

Head coaches take the reins of my coaching program, and because of the team I have in place, I have no worries about that.

That’s where batching comes in

 

Batching (4:30)

I’ve been doing lives 3x a week, so I have a month of podcasts in the cue ready to go out. We have like 8 episodes batched for my time off.

I have email sequence ready to go, so my team knows when to send them out.

I look ahead for these emails, and have them all scheduled out so the most important touch points are taken care of.

 

Having a team in place (6:22)

We use asana for our team communication, and have separate calendars for each aspect of our business. We have one especially for the podcast, and one for email marketing.

Emails are written, podcasts are ready to go, sales team is still talking to potential clients. I know that because I have a team in place, they’ll still be working during my time off, so I know nothing will slip through the cracks.

The things only I can do are already taken care of, and my team knows where to go from there.

Thinking ahead for your content, and creating more than enough to go out while you’re off are the keys to successful time off. DOn’t take your computer to the vacation, ACTUALLY unplug! This way you will actually come back from your time off rested and recovered. You CAN have a successful business and take time off.
