In the week since I’ve been back in computer-land after a wonderful holiday, I’ve seen countless blog entries and facebook posts about New Years Resolutions, Intentions, Goals and Plans… all of which are truly great. I believe the point of all these is to do SOMETHING to start off a new year in style.
Our intention with Love Your Small Business has always been that our work supports time with family, opportunities for adventures and the chance to live healthy, balanced lives (as opposed to taking over every waking minute of our lives).
However this time last year we worked right up till Christmas and were left wondering where we had gone wrong as we launched into our family Christmases feeling tired, stressed, and not having had time to really enjoy that special time to celebrate family and summer.
Well we're not going to let that happen again, and this year we have decided that on Friday December 14th we will turn off our computers and pack away our work, giving us more than a week to unwind, spend with family, and really enjoy a 3-week break (so we have energy to cause some chaos!).
It can be tricky to prioritise family and holidays, especially in the early years of business when things are still getting off the ground, but we know that January is going to be a busy month for us (an exciting new programme is already in motion) so it's crucial for us to have time completely away from technology and to stop having our heads buried in the business, so we can come back fresh and rearing to go.
What about you?
Wishing you a relaxed, safe and happy Holiday Season

Who are Janine and Jo?
That's Jo on the left and Janine on the right – and this pic of us is in Snowdonia, Wales.
Back in 2009, Janine took Jo on a mission to climb the 13 peaks of Snowdon in 24 hours (as a 30th Birthday present…good friend huh?)
We managed 9 of them in 36 hours and had a blast! It was a huge challenge, both physically and mentally, but also a whole lot of fun.
The views were amazing, the sense of freedom was huge and undertaking a challenge like that gave us a taste of our own magnificence. We learned just how far we were capable of pushing ourselves.
We ate a lot of chocolate, and could hardly walk the next day!
