Today's Permission Slip:
Each episode I give you a permission slip - a reminder to give yourself permission to run your business and live your dream life on your own terms.
In today’s episode Laura reminds us that, “Nothing bad will happen to your clients if you take a day off. But something severe might happen to me if I don’t let myself relax and chill for awhile.”
And she’s completely right! We tend to run ourselves until we break, especially as entrepreneurs. And having come through a recent burnout, she knows all to well how important rest is to running your biz well and keeping yourself healthy.
I give myself permission to take time off when I need to rest.
