Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy

December 23, 2009

As the snow swirls around outside and the hustle and bustle of the fast approaching holiday fills women entrepreneurs minds with last minute preparations, I hope today you take a few minutes to reflect on the spirit of this season as you prepare to take some well deserved time away from your business. 

As entrepreneurs it is hard to slow down, to give ourselves permission to stop and enjoy any down time. It’s not in our nature or in our business plans to take time away from our enterprises worrying that our clients will need us, new contracts will go to a competitor, or our momentary lapse in hyper-activity will be the end of our motivation to succeed.  It is hard to cut ourselves a break from the plans, activities, goals and vision we set to just stop and relax.

I try to remind myself that from December 24th to January 2nd the entire business world slows down too. I’ve witnessed it for the past fifteen years as an entrepreneur. Business crawls during this week. Don’t take it personally because everyone takes a break.  Since time is so precious, most people realize and value this special week to be with the ones they love, to travel to warm destinations to enjoy a vacation, and to simply slow down to refresh their souls. It’s okay to relax, it really is.

So today’s message is to simply remind you that you have worked really hard this year, giving your all, reaching for the stars, trying to move mountains, striving to be the best in order to achieve personal and entrepreneurial success. You’ve done enough and you’ve done it well.  Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy this week when the world slows down to celebrate the season of peace, family and good friends.

2010 is only a week away and before you know it you’ll be back in the hustle and bustle setting even larger goals for the New Year. Women TIES will be right here ready to help you achieve them. But until then, I personally wish you a blessed and joyful holiday week where you bask in the love of your family and friends and remember the fantastic job you did this year to be the successful woman entrepreneur you are.
