Trigger warning: This episode talks about cancer, loss, and grief.

When you’re running a business, you still have to manage to live your life alongside it. And when things happen in your life that demand your attention, you want to be able to give it the attention it needs. This came up personally for me when I had to take a sudden leave from work. Thankfully, I have systems in place that allow me to do this and still keep the business running smoothly.

I share what happened in my life to prompt my break, tips for setting up the systems I had in place to allow for a seamless and sudden period of leave, and the push/rest concept that I have been thinking about for quite some time.

In this episode, you’ll hear…

  • 03:41 - A life update from Sam
  • 28:56 - Having people behind you to support you
  • 31:04 - Giving yourself time to rest
  • 36:04 - Creating a system to give yourself time off
  • 48:36 - Times to push and times to rest

And now our review of the week! Jenna_RD writes: “I have been listening to Sam for a while now, and have enjoyed every single one of her podcast episodes. I love the natural, down-to-earth way she presents information, and I really appreciate her consistent reminders that growing my business can be done on MY terms. I've used her Ultimate Bundle of legal templates to get my business up and running, and it has relieved so much stress knowing I'm set up from a legal standpoint. Thanks Sam!”
