Girls, I am taking my annual July blogging break. I do this every year for my mental wellbeing, and for the quality of this blog. It is my gift to myself. It is not easy to continuously keep things fresh, relevant and interesting, so every July, I rest my blogging brain to come back recharged, refreshed, and ready to give you more.

Over the next few weeks, I will be working, coaching, speaking, doing my weekly Global TV parenting segments, and relaxing. I am also sticking to my annual business tradition:

  • June: A time of business idea generation and brainstorming. This involves a list that I create from scratch – a list that I make in Word consisting of 13 business ideas / opportunities that are in my head, that I could potentially execute.
  • July: My marinating month. I just marinade all the ideas. I think about what feels right, what feels wrong.
  • August: I begin to execute in August.

I have found this summer strategy very effective, and you might wish to give it a try.


So, I wish you all a wonderful upcoming month of July. I hope you find some time to yourself to reflect, and map out your goals. Summer is a great time to do that. As always, I am known to check in, so please do come and visit. Please consider this your time to catch up on “rerun” blog posts, as well. 😉 I will be on Twitter Instagram and Facebook, and so come say hi over there!

Many blessings to you, and remember this while I’m gone….

I’d love to know, will you be taking any time off? What are your summer plans? Are you reading anything good you can recommend?
