I’m excited to welcome Abby, Trent, and Laurie from Collected Living Design. This trio of business partners is sharing how they have taken their growing business and turned it into a business that truly supports their lives. They have been on this journey with us at Tap the Potential for about 1-½ years, and they have accomplished incredible things. Each of them is growing as a human being and learning valuable life lessons as they tweak their roles as business owners/partners. They have each been able to take extended time away from their business to enjoy their lives and families, which is a huge step for any small business owner. Join us for my conversation with Abby, Trent, and Laurie!

Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production.

Show Highlights:

  • The biggest surprises on this journey so far: a work-life balance IS possible, the right systems are EVERYTHING, and learning to enjoy the business side 
  • The importance of letting go of what brought you where you are–so you can move forward
  • The hardest lessons so far: trusting others, setting aside time for visioning and goals, and accepting our own strengths and weaknesses
  • Coaching advice for business owners sometimes seems counterintuitive—and it’s NOT all about the numbers and effort you put forth.
  • Navigating “fires” in the business with accountability to each other about turning off  “work” mode
  • Personal lives are different now for Trent, Abby, and Laurie because they can prioritize their energy levels, take unplugged vacations, and leave the mental stress at work each day. 
  • Trent’s experience in taking paternity leave when his new baby was born, Abby’s unplugged vacation to France, and Laurie’s upcoming trip
  • Get the details about the Pledge-A-Thon for July for business owners. Find out more about your chance to win the How to Hire the Best Course for free and take the free 4 Week Vacation® pledge today!
  • Perspectives from Trent, Abby, and Laurie on the biggest worries of business owners about taking a 4 Week Vacation®
