4 Reasons You Should Take a Vacation

You Should Take a Vacation!

Taking a Vacation…Greetings from Tahiti!

I am writing from the beautiful beaches of Tahiti! Things have been hectic with work (in a good way), but sometimes you just need to escape to the beach for a little R&R. Prepping for my trip made me realize just how important taking a vacation is! Overworking yourself can hurt your business. Here are my 4 reasons why we should take a vacation this year.
Take a Vacation!
When was the last time you took a vacation? It is important to slow down and make time for yourself. It can be hard to step away from the laptop, or turn your cell phone to “do not disturb”, but it is SO important to try. Taking a vacation can mean taking a trip to Tahiti, or just having a spa weekend staycation. Whatever form the vacation takes, just make sure you are giving yourself a chance to relax.
1. Taking a vacation will actually make you more productive! You may be focusing on how much work won’t be getting done, but if you know you are about to take a week off, you will be surprised to see how much work you can complete before your vacation starts. Having deadlines keeps our work flow going. Never scheduling breaks or vacations just invites you to work the same amount over a longer period of time. Work smarter, not harder.  I went through a pile of papers that were nagging at me just before we left.  Pushing myself to get through them felt great once they were done!
2. Relationships can suffer when you are over worked! When you work late, you miss out on your friends and family. These relationships are important in life and for home-based businesses. Working from home makes it especially hard to start and end work at reasonable times, but trust me, your friends and family will thank you for it! Take a vacation with your kids or husband – make time for the ones you love. Every year my best girl friends and I take a weekend trip to Napa for a weekend of fun and wine tasting. I don’t always get to see them, so this time is so important to keep those bonds strong.

Why you should take a vacation!

3. Taking time to do something you love is a major stress reliever! After a few hours (or even a day) away, you might come back to your work much more refreshed and ready to accomplish a difficult task. Sometimes, when you get stuck, all you need is to walk away from what you are working on and you might find the answer right in front of you!

4. If you don’t take time off you can burnout! Burning out happens when people do not take breaks from their work. When you are working too many hours a day, you will start to hate the work that you once loved!  Think of your long term career – you have a lot of time to accomplish everything you need to. Take a vacation and focus on something else for a week so you can come back to the office refreshed and excited to work.  Hope you enjoy these photos of Tahiti.  We are having a blast and I expect to come home refreshed and ready to go again!

I hope I have inspired you to put the phone down and take sometime for yourself! Slow down and take a vacation.  It is summer – my favorite time of year to take a break!  Invite some friends over for a summer party and unwind with the people you love and cherish.  And plan that next get away.  The beach is calling me….

Get Paid to Vacation like a Celebrity

Paid to Vacation

Paid to Vacation? Yep, you heard right!

When I first started my career in network marketing in 2006 I knew I was onto something big. I knew the opportunity had the potential to change my life and build true wealth. What I didn’t expect, though, was how much FUN it would be to build a network marketing business!

I recently looked back on all the times I’ve been paid to vacation, courtesy of my network marketing career, and had to laugh when I realized I couldn’t count them on my two hands. I would need two more fingers for that because I have been paid to vacation over FIFTEEN times!

In my current business with Jeunesse, the company rewards us with generous paychecks, and they also treat us to first class corporate incentive trips! When is the last time you were PAID to vacation at a five star resort? I have had to pinch myself many times throughout my networking career.

Vacation like a celebrity!

Someone pinch me… I’m getting paid to vacation?!?!

I had only been with Jeunesse for seven weeks when I earned my first incentive trip – a Mediterranean cruise! As if the generous paychecks aren’t enough, Jeunesse gives us travel points and numerous other opportunities to earn trips like this.

The luxury of being paid to vacation is just a small reason a career with Jeunesse is the opportunity of a lifetime. The community we are a part of is one of the most giving groups of people I’ve ever known. This includes the corporate executives as well as our internationally growing distributor base.

I have never had so much fun “working.” I have loved the lifestyle I have been able to afford for my family as a result of building a network marketing career. Many of my friends are now financially free as well and are getting paid to vacation too! It has been an honor to be part of that process. The friends I have made along the way are priceless, and the lives that have been touched by the benefits of our products is so rewarding.
