Jumpstart Your Way to a 4 Week Vacation®️

How does a four-week vacation sound? Does it sound impossible and far out of reach for you? The reality is that it can be achieved with a few small, but consistent steps forward in your business. Two of my key team members are joining me for today’s episode to discuss why a four-week vacation has huge significance for the business owner AND their team members. Let’s take a closer look!

At Tap the Potential, I am joined by Melissa Swire, Lead Strategist and Connect Team Lead. As well as Darren Hopman, Success Team Lead at Tap the Potential.

Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production.

Show Highlights:
  • What Melissa remembers over the last year as her “Aha” moments around taking a four-week vacation–and her own one-week vacation for the first time in many years
  • What Melissa has learned about work/life boundaries and her time
  • What Darren remembers as his “Aha” moments in being encouraged to make a vacation a priority–which is counter to what American society teaches us
  • How putting systems in place to allow a four-week vacation creates space for flexibility when “life” happens
  • What it means to Melissa and Darren to have the ability to take time away from work for personal reasons
  • How taking time away from work helps team members honor the important roles in their lives
  • How team members have opportunities to step up and shine with creativity, motivation, and innovation when the business owner takes time away for an extended vacation
  • When business owners can take some time off from work, they become stronger, as do their teams
  • How to build toward your four-week vacation: The Better Business Better Life Jumpstart is a FREE, week-long event with the Tap the Potential team to teach you key strategies to build toward a four-week vacation.
  • What Melissa and Darren love about the Jumpstart

About The Author

Dr. Sabrina Starling, The Business Psychologist and international best-selling author of the How to Hire the Best series and The 4 Week Vacation™, is the founder of Tap the Potential and host of the Profit by Design podcast. At Tap the Potential, we work to free business owners from the constant demands of a growing business.

We believe work supports life, not the other way around. Clients in our Better Business, Better Life coaching program have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than they’ve ever had. Next, we send them off on a 4 Week Vacation™ to celebrate their hard-earned journey to take their life back!

Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential are on a mission to change the story of entrepreneurship from one of long hours, grinding it out, to one of sustainably profitable businesses that support and enhance life. The Tap the Potential Solution™ and our Tap the Potential Family of Business Owners are disrupting small business as usual. We are on our way to making the Tap the Potential Solution™ the mainstream model for growing business.

By 2023, 150 Tap the Potential clients will have taken 4 Week Vacations. These are the trailblazers, role modeling what’s possible for entrepreneurs. In many entrepreneurial circles, it is becoming more and more common for one entrepreneur to ask another, “Have you taken a 4 Week Vacation™?” (as opposed to asking “How many employees do you have?” or “What is your annual revenue?”). Taking a fully unplugged 4 Week Vacation is rapidly becoming the recognized symbol of entrepreneurial success.

Never one to accept the status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients’ growth and profitability. What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses—no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing—and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating Great Places to Work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

As The Business Psychologist, and with her years of driving profit in small businesses, Dr. Sabrina knows what it takes to find, keep, and motivate exceptional performance out of your biggest investment—team members.
