Always dreamt of taking a sabbatical?
Perhaps taking a road trip around Australia, studying Italian in Florence, or even just putting your feet up with a good book for a few months?
If we were being honest, I think every business owners has dreamt of a sabbatical.
So why don’t we make it happen?
Usually, because we’re scared that our income will vanish faster than you can say “I’ll take my margarita by the pool”.
But you can have both, the income and the break… I promise.
Last year I took a teaching sabbatical for the best part of three months.
You see, after years of teaching back-to-back programs, I knew I needed a break. I’d talked about taking a sabbatical for years, and finally made the decision to make it happen.
And you know what?
That’s all it took – a decision.
But what came next was a game-changer (even if I do say so myself).
Instead of watching my income drop off a cliff, I set the firm intention that I would make even more income than I would have made working full time.
Guess what? I did.
After three glorious months off that included daily 20km runs, learning to surf, and plenty of time in the garden, I came back to our High-End Hustlers double the numbers we normally intake.
To be clear – there was no team working while I was away. These sales came from entirely automated processes that I set up before putting my feet up, and that’s exactly what I’m talking about in today’s podcast episode.
- The clarity I needed to finally make the leap.
- How I onboarded my partner and team (so they didn’t freak out) with the decision.
- Setting up our marketing so that our list continued to grow while I was out surfing
- How I automated our sales process so that I came back to a sold-out program.
