Fun is Part of My New Vision
My vision quest started with envy. I don’t do vision boards and spent little time thinking about vision until last Friday.
It started over a conversation with my friend and teammate Tabitha. She is taking a “circus” class on Thursdays. I was envious. Who did she think she was leaving on a Thursday afternoon to hang upside down?
Then it happened to me. A business opportunity led me to Deerhurst Resort.
It provided me with a getaway away trip I really needed, (I spend way too much time at home) where I participated in yoga, saw two amazing concerts and met some great new girlfriends (it was indeed a weekend away for the gals- I just happened to bring my family too). Plus I spent Sunday kayaking with my family… how cool is that?
When I left on Friday at 3:30 pm my husband was bugging me to get off a business call. There was a lot of dirty looks and mouthed words to each other.
I was a stress ball trying to get as much done as I could before I left, but by the time I got to our destination I found the distance I needed from my work to realize that work could bloody well wait. My laptop I had brought stayed packed.
By the time I got home from my weekend away I realized that FUN was going to be apart of my business vision. Why can’t work and play mingle?
Here are the promises I have made to myself since Friday:
- Find more time to be outside (work , exercise and network outside)
- Look for more win win opportunities where I can benefit from fun experiences (it is not always about the money)
- Focus on the quality of my life overall, as a business owner and not just the money (honey). Time for play is now a priority.
What about you? Does fun play into your vision?

Event Description The BIGGEST impact on my career came when I included my WHY into my presentations and bios. It meant the difference between: • getting referrals or not • getting a speaking engagement or not • getting a standing ovation or not • getting invited to speak again or not It astounded me.
In business you know the power of strength in a brand – it means respect in your industry, a relationship with your customer base, instant brand recognition, and can lead to increased sales. In your personal life do you know the power of your own strength? I am not talking about being emotionally strong
