Some business owners save their money to go on a holiday…
To ESCAPE a life and a business they hate
Yet most won’t invest in discovering who they are, adapting their business and creating a life that they don’t desire to escape.
Most won’t invest in someone to help manage their stress and emotions even though as an entrepreneur or small business owner you statistically have a 1 in 3 chance of suffering from mental health challenges.
You know the ones…
Self-deprecating and critical thoughts…
That affects your ability to be effective in the business
The ones that then flow on disconnect your intimate relationship

Who you probably tell yourself is the reason why you are building this. To inspire them.
Yet you are a fucking stressed-out mess who couldn’t inspire a dehydrated Ethiopian child to drink fresh water.
You would probably scare them away.
So the solution to this is a holiday of course.
Like it always is.
Time away from the family.
Time away to relax.
When you come back from dropping your $20k you already are dreaming of the next holiday…
You say things like…
“I need a holiday from my holiday”
“I need another week to recover”
Like it’s exhaustion from your holiday.
But it isn’t…
𝐈𝐭’𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲𝐝𝐚𝐲 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐛𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐫𝐮𝐧𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐛𝐚𝐜𝐤 𝐨𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐝
It sits whispering from the time you leave to the time you get back.
The proverbial fat elephant in your head
It’s your lack of enthusiasm and the depression of coming back to life and business you are massively stressed about. It’s the resistance to showing back up and into a world where nothing has changed.
The solution isn’t
- Another holiday
- Hiring more staff
- Downsizing your business
- Upsizing your business
- A business coach
- A coach to “scale” your business or make another 100k per month
- Delegating everything to everyone else
Although all of these May offer temporary relief, none give a guarantee that the patterns of thinking that got you here are BUSTED

And secretly, I know, and you know this has happened many times before..
So here is my guarantee.
Your mindset and emotional management strategies and tools are the Major key that most ignore.
While they admit that their thinking and emotions,
Dictate their decisions and actions.
They for some reason ignore this in business.
When their business is just a reflection of each one of these.
As if ignorance is a better option than permanently being able to overcome these mental challenges and resolving all the bullshit that comes along with them 🤷♂
As if dropping
On a 2-week holiday (avoid and hope something changes strategy) is better….
If you are in business and sick of the pain, stress and frustration that comes with these patterns.
If you are ready to master your mindset and emotion to master your business and life.
If you are ready to be the inspiration for your kids and set the example for how to live a life that is both challenging, rewarding and fulfilling..
