From 4 Hours Off to a 4 Week Vacation™!
Tina Smith, misChief Executive Officer of Creative, is making the 4 Week Vacation™ Pledge!
“Last year on family vacation I think I took about four hours to spend with the family–that included meals. I knew small business life shouldn't have to look like that. I heard about people doing it differently. So I made a commitment to myself that my business would give me and my team life, as we gave life to the dreams of others.” — Tina Smith
Currently, Tina participates in a Tap the Potential's Exclusive Small Group Coaching Program. Several of her group members have attended the Breakthroughs on the Bayou Retreat in the past. Tina is inspired by the business owners attending the retreat as she witnesses the positive changes the Retreat and the Tap the Potential Exclusive Small Group Program are making in these entrepreneurs’ lives.
Tina has surrounded herself with the kinds of entrepreneurs that she desires to be. And, she’s attending the 2020 retreat! We are so excited to have her there, where she will surround herself with a community (and learn all the tools) to help her fulfill her pledge to take her 4 Week Vacation.

In this video, Tina tells her story:
“Imagining the possibilities, aiming high, fighting hard, and expressing gratitude for just how far naming goals has taken me. Running a business, I don't always make room for me. Any small business owners out there feel’n me?”
“Last year on family vacation I think I took about four hours to spend with the family–that included meals. I knew small business life shouldn't have to look like that. I heard about people doing it differently. So I made a commitment to myself that my business would give me and my team life, as we gave life to the dreams of others.”
“I take what other business owners have entrusted to me seriously. We're all pouring our blood, sweat, and tears into this. That makes me determined that their investment in me will fuel actual growth of all of their imaginings. As family vacation is here again this year, I've pledged to one full day of nothing but vacation.”
“I'm taking stock being grateful, and imagining the future. Maybe one day or one morning doesn't seem like much, but it's the struggle toward freedom—the one step closer, the fighting for it that makes it worth it. One day away from the business last year was unthinkable and I'm sitting here imagining how much better next year will be.”
“I keep setting bigger goals just to see how close I can get, because in a year (with lots of help), I've gotten pretty darn close to the things I finally decided to say out loud. Maybe it's your turn. If your dream isn't worth the fight, maybe it's not big enough.”
“Dream so big and say it out loud, that it's worth fighting for!”
