This Friday, I am launching off on my first ever sabbatical. I’m taking six weeks away from work and any work-related commitments. No appointments, no client meetings, no staff meetings, I’m not even going to step in the office unless there is blood or fire involved.
I’m also going to push the pause button on producing my weekly blog posts & emails that I’ve been producing for more than a decade now. I’m also pausing our weekly podcast, and any speaking or workshop work that I personally do.
Just to be clear, though, sparkspace is rockin’ and will continue to host meetings and executive retreats while I’m gone. I’ve got a great team in place that is handing the business like champions while I personally step away for a little bit.
Why a sabbatical? Why now? Truthfully, I’m kind of stuck. I’ve built two successful businesses that are running quite well. Like I said, I have a great team in place. I get to do work that I really enjoy. And yet, I feel like for the first time in a long time I can’t see the future (i.e., “I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up”).
