185: Permission to Rest

Just because you run an indie-biz doesn’t mean you can’t take time off. In fact, taking the time to rest and rejuvenate is incredibly important for you AND for your creative business! Listen in to get a giant permission slip to take time off at TaraSwiger.com/podcast185

You are your business's number 1 asset. You are the producer, packager, marketer, seller and face of your biz. You know what that means? It doesn't survive without you!

Now, some of you use this as a reason you can NOT take time off, but I am telling you this is why you NEED to take time off!

You Have Permission

Last week, I encouraged you to accept compliments, and boy, was it hard! One of the things I noticed in many challenger's posts (you can see them all here) was doubt about the validity of compliments. There was a lot of discounting compliments as not “real,” or the complimenter as not really knowing enough to have a valid compliment. In other words, even when you TRY to accept other people's compliments (and comments about your worthiness and awesomeness)... it's never enough. Another person can never give you enough validation to make you feel confident if you aren't already. Today, we’re going to talk about the step you can take today, with or without confidence, to move forward in your business: Permission. Listen in at TaraSwiger.com/podcast130/
