It’s summer, and it’s July 5. I know you’re not around. Maybe you’re reading this on your phone at the beach or relaxing in a hammock. And if so – awesome!

I love this time of year, so let’s listen to one of my favourite summer songs, “Summertime Rolls” by Jane’s Addiction while enjoying a lighter look at work this week…

Vacation Guilt – Begone!

I don’t get it. Some clients tell me they feel guilty taking a vacation. Please don’t misunderstand; I really enjoy working and interacting with clients and challenging myself to problem solve and deliver the best solutions possible. But when the vacation switch gets thrown – I’m all in! I recently read that 40% of Americans leave unused paid vacation time on the table every year. What?!?!

Here are some tips to help you lose the vacation guilt:

  • Plan in advance
  • Set boundaries
  • Set the autoresponder
  • Give yourself an hour to deal with work
  • Keep remembering why you need a vacation!

Demand Generation Tune-up

Hope you’re enjoying some well-earned time off! (And as always, don’t hesitate to call me to brainstorm or just say hello.)

Looking forward,
