Coaching businesswomen by sharing inspirational and practical lessons is the goal of author Jane Pollak.
Pollak is a living example of how to turn a passion into a thriving business.
In her book, "Soul Proprietor," Jane says, "sometimes the universe forces you to take time off."
Here are Jane's tipes to assure you are making the most of your time off.
- Use your calendar off as a tool.
- Intentionally take breaks.
- Look at time off as an investment.
- Let your customers know when you will be available, not when you will not.
- Do a lot of nothing! That one is pretty straight-forward.
