Why Rest is Important
This past five months have been more than we could ever ask for. From taking on new clients, to growing our team, we're so grateful for GROWTH. But, add in 3 months of traveling, and two huge projects, and the burnout is so real. Not just creative burnout, but the actual capacity to feel motivated on a daily basis.
REST as a business owner is incredibly important. It's okay to feel overwhelmed, overworked, and overtired, but no business or team can run efficiently on those fumes. It's okay to take a step back, take a break, and re-visit your project after you're fully charged.
At RISE, our main focus has and always will be our clients. Their projects come first no matter what. That is why, when we decided to add the launch of a podcast, into the mix of also building our online courses, we realized it was too much. We've decided to postpone the launch of our podcast, Mission-Driven Marketing until we have time to full focus on building it. We're excited for you to hear the interviews we've already conducted, and learn from incredible business owners, but for now, we have to focus on our mission which is serving our clients.
You don't have to do it all. You don't have to keep up with the Jones'. You don't have to constantly look at the competition. Take a step back. Go for a walk. Get some fresh air. Take a family vacation. Read a book. Journal. Take a Yoga Class. Listen to some great live music. Do all the thing that fill you back up and make you feel alive. Those are the things that are going to fuel your business more than you know. You can't pour from an empty cup, so give yourself some grace, give yourself a break (literally), and then come back feeling re-charged, re-freshed, and ready to make some magic.
