Stop the Silence
Thriving After Child Sexual Abuse

I was asked to author chapter 8 in this book after publicly sharing my 90-minute podcast interview with Merianne Drew about “My Story.”

In it, I share the struggle to find professionals who would even listen to me, let alone believe me, and help me do what I needed to break the cycle of abuse and protect my children.

It also includes tips for supporters of child sexual abuse survivors.

Can My Business Survive My Vacation?

Does your well-deserved vacation always stay an elusive “concept?” Or, is there a pattern of planning times of rest and bliss consistently getting bumped to next year?

 

I’ll bet you’ll have a list of your own. Here are some of the thoughts that used to taunt me in the wee hours of the morning:

  • I wonder which “things” will slip through the cracks while I’m gone.
  • Since I’m the only one who knows everything, I can only be gone for 1-2 days.
  • How well prepared is my staff if there’s an IT disaster…. or another type?
  • What will come up that my team won’t be ready to handle?
  • What if a VIP client insists they need a project done ASAP, and it can only be done by me?
  • I need a vacation from my vacation, lol!
  • Will my family/partner/friends be upset when I bring my work with me? Again.

Do some of these thoughts hold you back when you consider planning for that well-deserved break for time to unplug, rest, refresh, and relax?

I’ve designed this workbook as a tool to support the leader I used to be. I struggled with the following conflicting realities:

  • You WANT a vacation but WORRY about what will happen to your business while you are on vacation.
  • You’ve reached BURNOUT and NO LONGER CARE to know what will happen to your business when you are absent.
  • You take work WITH YOU on vacation; only to return more tired than when you started your vacation. (Your FAMILY IS NOT HAPPY either…..)
  • You haven’t had a vacation in a while and WANT TO FEEL GOOD about what is happening in your business while you are on vacation.
  • You are a MANAGER and are pretty concerned about what YOUR EMPLOYEES will do when you are on vacation.
  • You are a SPOUSE OR FAMILY MEMBER who is tired of not being able to have a TRUE vacation because the other person is tied up with work.
