And, I'm off...
Whether you vacay or stay-cay, take some time for yourself this summer!
Who knows that feeling when you're counting down the weeks to a trip and then it gets here and you're like, "Sh*t, I have so much to do before I leave!" As an entrepreneur, sometimes planning for a break (and catching up when you're back) is as much of a job as the work itself. But it's SO worth it.
Next week, I'm headed off to upstate New York to see one of my favorite bands + get away from the city. Much as I love DC, it's necessary for my soul to have a change of scenery. Even if you can't make it out of town this summer, I hope you give yourself a staycation break. This is your reminder that no worlds will end if you don't post + scroll through Insta for a few days. Take advantage of the slower pace this time of year: log off of social media, put your email on vacation mode, and do something for yourself!
While I'm away, we're pressing pause on our IG and skipping the newsletter next week. Full disclosure: I am kinda doing some work, tho. I gave myself one admin/work task to complete each day I'm out. You know, those annoying to-do list things that pile up and I never want to do. I feel okay with this use of work-vacay balance... we'll see how it goes.
In the meantime, get your CollabCreate fix by answering our new Question of the Week below for a chance to be featured in the next issue + catching up on the newsletter archives just added to our site.
Take time to take care of you... you deserve it!
