Lights flashing through the bedroom windows, the scrape of the plow as it clears the snow from the driveway – ah, the sounds of a 4:30am wake-up call… 😉
As I write this, we’re in our first real snowstorm of the season, and while normally it would have been a snow day for the kids, they had to make a quick shift to remote learning this week due to their first positive case, so alas… no day off just yet.
It reminds me, though, of one of the very reasons I wanted to be my own boss…
and that was so I could skip the stress when the kids’ schools called a snow day (which happens quite frequently in the northeast).
I didn’t have to get permission from a boss to take the day off or use a personal or vacation day.
I’ve never had to have a discussion with my husband about who was going to stay home from work to be with the kids.
Plus, come on, snow days are just FUN. 😉
So, after the kids finish classes today, maybe we’ll go play in the snow, or (more likely ;-)), maybe we’ll light a fire and watch a movie – just because we can.
And I LOVE that about my business – the flexibility of it, the freedom of it… and that’s probably one of the reasons you’re your own boss too.
This year has likely been one when you’ve needed to have a lot of flexibility, especially if your kids have been remote learning, or if other members of your family needed care, or if your own business was forced to change due to the pandemic.
Wherever you are today, I firmly believe that our best times lay ahead.
I’ve been spending time, energy and money in preparing to both make that happen and enjoy it when it does.
I’ve simply refused to let this time in lockdown be in vain.
So while we may not be able to control what’s happening externally, we CAN control what happens in our business and our life.
I’d love to share more about this with you in my free mini-workshop that’s coming up soon.
I’m calling it the Online Business Reset – because I believe that’s exactly what we all need as we turn the calendar to a new year…
… a reset that includes more freedom and flexibility for you.
