Tips for a GREAT Holiday Break

Latest posts by Melanie Rembrandt (see all)

Congratulations! You’ve made it through the unique challenges 2009 had to offer small business owners, and now it’s time to celebrate.

With this in mind, here are a few tips to have a G-R-E-A-T holiday:

G: Give Back To The Community.

Volunteer to help a local charity. Donate your used clothing and other items to a worthy cause, or write a check of any size to your favorite non-profit organization. You’ll be able to help others and get a small tax deduction at the same time.

R: Relax.

Stop thinking about your business for a little while and do something just for you. Read your favorite book, cozy up to the fire with a loved one, rent a movie you haven’t had time to see, get a massage, or take a walk.

The possibilities are endless for recharging your batteries for the year ahead!

E: Eat, Drink And Be Merry!

It’s time to have some fun!

Party with friends and family members. Take a break from your diet and indulge in your favorite holiday food. Let go of the stresses of being an entrepreneur and count your blessings.

A: Add Some Excitement To Your Life!

Learn a new skill. Get inspired! Join a class, book club or group that focuses on a new hobby. Try something new. You’ll get your creative juices flowing and meet new people.

Who knows? Your new activities may help you break out of a rut and pursue completely different business opportunities in the year ahead.

T: Take Time to Set Goals.

Now is the perfect time to create your success plan for 2010. What do you want to accomplish, and where do you want to be next year at this time? Write it down.

After all, if you don’t know where you’re going, how are you going to get there?

These are just a few quick tips to help you have a great holiday break. And at this time, I’d like to thank you for reading my blog entries this year and providing your insights, comments and questions. I look forward to sharing more with you in the brand new year ahead!
