We often have this myth that if we go on vacations our businesses will suffer. I want to break that belief!! You Can Mix Business and Pleasure Successfully!!
We also think that if we work too much on our vacations our family will get angry at us & be disappointed as we are on the phone and they are at the beach or making s’mores on the campfire… It can seem like there is no way we can successfully go on holidays…
Fortunately there IS a way that you can find a happy BALANCE!
You can definitely maintain a happy business when you’re gone. You can preserve ALL the momentum & success you’ve worked so far for! AND revel in the pleasure in all those precious moments!
Remember that women are pretty amazing creatures. We are very inventive with what we do and HOW we do it. Our businesses within network marketing can be equally successful and balanced with all the fun we can have in our holidays!

Here are some tips and strategies you can follow:
*** You need to set apart pockets (blocks) of time, and be CREATIVE about it… Rock that lifestyle possibility that we’re living every day! We are living the dream and people are watching you!! So Be Inspiring! Try to take full advantage of what people think/believe are disadvantages.
*** You have to be working smart, pin point focused and with precise strategy. You need to have an open chat in your family unit. We don’t usually just go on vacation on the drop of a hat, so plan ahead! If we know a vacation is coming there are certain tasks we can do to prepare for it to go smoothly and fun.
- Have a conversation with your partner. If you have a spouse or a partner you need to have a conversation first and tell them beforehand that you’ll be needing around 15 to 20 minutes a day to do a little bit of phone business work.
- Take into consideration if you are a morning person or a night owl. Maybe you’ll be up before them! You also have to set time boundaries and get EXCITED about that! Prioritize to be ultra effective!
- Time blocking is EXTREMELY powerful. Power bursts are super important. Strategize and focus, during those 15 -20 minutes get to work! Then get off and back to the beach, the camp fire with your friends and family and ENJOY your holiday!
*** Debunk some myths. Remember women sometimes get a mental mind block. We think we’re somehow going to lose momentum and lose clients. (When we focus on soaking up some fun and pleasure time) You start thinking people will forget about you and consequently your team will slow down. That’s why you NEED a strategy in order to debunk some of those myths! Remember, Show them and encourage them that they can do the same! Show them how you were eight days on the road and you signed a new team member! Maybe you also added a new client, show your team that this CAN be done! By using your power pockets of time you can build your business and STILL have an AMAZING time, full of pleasure playing at the beach! Don’t think you have to skip on vacations to keep up with your work!
*** Networking is all about prioritizing. If you think your group is too small, that no one is buying your stuff, and that you need to learn how to grow your social circle… Vacation is the BEST time to do it! These are the days when you’ll meet all sorts of people! Don’t bring out the samples and the business cards, instead just ask them to send you a friend request on fb, tell them “let’s stay connected!” You can grow your circle of friendships at all the vacation related social gatherings (hikes, excursions, activities at the beach…) This is the BEST way to make new friends!
*** Build strategies. A big timesaver is to get different ideas on your head of what you want to post on different days and send these to yourself whether by email, bookmarking them, or text messaging them to yourself on fb. You can pre-plan some ideas! If you’re in the corporate world, or you are a real estate agent you can also designate and assign different tasks. It’s very common to have VAs and to let them know you’re going on holidays, so they can keep up with their jobs even while you are away! Just make sure you’ve taken enough time to prepare and delegate all of your duties.
*** Auto posts are fillers. I’m personally not a big fan of these! If you’re on vacation people will want to see YOU, they will want to live vicariously through you, your travels and your experiences! People want to see YOU and your adventures and lifestyle when you’re traveling! That’s the beauty of what we’re doing.
Whatever business you are working in, you have to capitalize we have lifestyle opportunities, you have to showcase what we do and HOW we do it! We know there is always someone out there who is watching you! Finally, make sure you come back home refreshed and energized! Soak up all the sunshine!
Remember the speed of the leader, designates the speed of the pack! What kind of speed do YOU want to have?
Implementing a few of these ideas will allow you to keep that momentum and keep the team plugged in and energized (and not miss out on any of the pleasure you were seeking)! Maybe next year they can join you! (if they haven’t already!)
