Time to Put FUN Back on the Calendar


Sunday I was doing some daydreaming and visualization about what I’d like to do next year for my 45th Birthday. Since it’s 10 months away, I’ve got some time to do the planning. And when you want to do something BIG, you’ve got to do some planning.

The dream today is to return to one of the most magical places I’ve ever visited, Ubud, Bali and bring some friends along for the fun.  Perhaps staying for several weeks so that friends who visit can come for a while, explore, then leave allowing for other friends to take their place.   Of course these are preliminary dreams and I realize that planning something like this will take a while to put together, especially if there are others who will be joining me there.  But for me that’s part of the fun.

Thankfully, as a business owner, I have the ability to manage my time to allow for me to be out of the country for an extended period of time.  I will not be one of those people who go on vacation and work 8 hours a day as I’ve seen in many of the hotels I’ve stayed at.  Instead, with creative planning, a virtual dream team and more planning, I’ll create a way for me to be on an extended holiday AND have income coming in while I’m doing yoga and getting massages.

Having a team that helps to keep the day to day flow moving and even fulfill new client inquiries and orders is the key to taking a vacation and truly being able to unwind and enjoy.

Thankfully I have a great and growing team who are all virtual.  A mix of some stateside, some based around the globe, some working part-time and some only as needed for certain projects.  All are fantastic and supportive in helping me share my message as well as nurture myself.

Over the years I’ve met many small business and solo-preneurs who sadly tell me of having absolutely no free time, and have come to believe a vacation is something they think they will only be able to take when they retire.

It doesn’t have to be that way, as a matter of fact for several years I’ve been working with clients one-on-one to help them create a virtual team to give them the ability to share their message with the world in a bigger way AND have time for vacations.

** Exciting News **  In a few weeks you’ll be one of the first to know about a new course I’m releasing called “Building a Virtual Dream Team“.  It’s much of the information I use to help my individual clients, now put together for savvy soulful entrepreneurs just like you. The course will help anyone who wishes to successfully hire a virtual assistant.  In addition to being one of the first to know, you’ll also receive special early bird pricing as a loyal reader of {A Sprinkle of Fairy Dust} weekly eZine.

If you haven’t taken a vacation in a while I’d like to encourage you tocalendar michellespalding put some FUN back on the calendar, and even if it’s a short local trip, make some time to do it.  When you’re planning a vacation, remember that vacations are supposed to be FUN, they should be filled with time for exploration, adventure and relaxation.  While as entrepreneurs we can’t ignore our businesses when we’re on vacation, we can reduce the amount of time we check on them with the right amount of planning and a great virtual dream team.

Here’s to FUN adventures, tropical trips and sunning in paradise.

Love and light,
