Episode 18: The 6 Week Break Strategy (Part 1)
Everyone has different business goals, but no matter how long you want to run the business, no matter how much you enjoy the work you do, no matter how big or small your business is, every business owner should have the ‘6 Week Break’ on their list of goals. Not just to give yourself a break now and again but also for the benefits it brings.
The 6 Week Break Strategy is seriously underrated and isn’t talked enough about, because ultimately business owners should have the goal of not needing to be in their business for the wheels to keep turning. There are so many benefits, the team become less reliant on you, your staff learn and develop faster, the business is more valuable as all the knowledge isn’t stuck in your head, all that good stuff.
In this episode you’ll learn about the 6 Week Break Strategy and how it works. There is an awesome tip for when you’re away from the business but really want to talk to someone about work, along with other hacks for being able to let go. If 6 weeks seems like too long to be away from the helm, set the goal at 6 weeks and build up to it. Start with an extra long weekend, then a week, a fortnight, and so on. Applying the principles learned in the episode on a smaller scale first before stepping it up.
