You could go about 1 week before someone or something needed you.

So you’ll have time for a Spring Break, but don’t forget your laptop!

The pros and cons of being a Spring Breaker

You’ve created an incredible business from scratch.

The fact that you have clients or customers, you have products to sell, and you created a business to begin with speaks VOLUMES to your determination, stamina, and worth ethic as an owner.

You created something out of nothing & that can’t be understated.

You have an A-Team and some SERIOUS systems in place.

In order to take a Spring Break at all, you hired or partnered with some A-Team players to help you in your business plus you’ve ALREADY set up some systems that can run without you. Go you!

The more you can delegate and trust others, the more freedom for you.

You are in a PERFECT position to start clockworking.

Because you already have systems in place, at this point in your business you can prioritize clockworking in order to take even LONGER staycations next month. Or maybe even a hotel stay if you get crazy 😉

Making time to clockwork your business will give you MORE time.

You are prepared for some life events but not others.

Your business would survive without you for a week-long vacation, but what if you needed to step away for a longer amount of time for a parental leave, surgery, or caring for a loved one? Or what if you planned to sell it one day?

Spring Breakers need contingency plans in their business to run 100% without them long-term.

You are a bottleneck for decisions in your business.

Most decisions or projects still must get your stamp of approval before they can go out the door. This means you constantly feel like the bottleneck to things getting done in your business. Sure you don’t DO the work but you still have to APPROVE it.

You want to be the LEADER of your business but feel stuck as the bottleneck.

You haven’t been able to fully step into a CEO role yet.

As a Spring Breaker, you are being pulled into the day-to-day operations and delivery of your product and service more than you’d like and dream of being able to focus on strategy, new opportunities, and planning.

Your team NEEDS you to be the CEO of the business. (Plus that’s why you started it in the first place, right!)

“This program exceeded my expectations. I have stopped working 9-13 hour days, I now work approximately 6 hours a day but I’m working on more fulfilling tasks that are moving the business forward.”

Co-Founder of
The Bucketlist Bombshells

“I had such a great experience! I would totally recommend this to anyone in my position. Running a business as a solo founder is hard, so it is nice to get input from someone outside my company. My team members have been happy to take over some of the roles that I have been holding onto and doing by myself. I’m more conscious about the changes that I need to implement each week in order for my business to depend less on me.”

Founder at Ombu Labs, The Lean Software Boutique

“This workshop was fantastic! I wanted my team to run like clockwork, without my constant input, and now we’re well on our way to making that a reality. Adrienne and Tyler were the best hosts. The content was killer and it was just the right amount, not overwhelming. The best part of it was that everything was very actionable + transformational. I loved that the event wasn’t just about learning but also doing right there on the spot.”
