As you are listening to this episode, I’m on my 4 week vacation®️, but I did not forget about you! I want to keep you inspired and motivated about what’s possible, so I’m bringing you another 4 week vacation®️ story that is full of fun. We are featuring this encore edition of Ep. 28 with John Briggs, founder, and CEO of Incite Tax Works, who took a 4 week vacation®️ at the height of tax season. We recorded this interview in March 2019, when John was two weeks away from his 4 week vacation®️. We talked about the necessary mindset shifts as you prepare for a 4 week vacation®️, along with a critical, last-minute hiring piece that had to fall into place for John. Also worth noting, John was in the process of writing his first book, Profit First for Microgyms, which is now in print. 

When you’re starting on this journey, it may feel like you have a huge mountain to climb before your 4 week vacation®️ is a possibility. Remember that it truly is a journey of small steps forward taken in a consistent direction that lead to big change over time.
