Covid Vacations are a Thing


That’s right! You deserve a vacation, whether it’s on a beach in Mexico or an old patio chair on your back deck. This week, Shelby and Danielle chat about their regular “retreats” and why they’re so important for maintaining productivity throughout the pandemic. Join us for a wine-filled conversation that will convince you to just book those days off already and take a break from your business!

Hike Shelby mentioned (near Edmonton): Bunchberry Meadows Conservation Area [temporarily closed]

Danielle’s top 3 tips for setting boundaries:

  1. Autoresponder – double check dates and put it on Friday (or the last working day before you leave), and leave on for an extra day
  2. Training Clients – let them know you are out of town, don’t confuse the boundaries by answering emails
  3. Give yourself permission to relax and rejuvenate

Mojito Recipe:

Juice from 1/6 Lime

3-5 Mint Leaves

1-1.5 oz Gin

Sparkling Water


Muddle lime, mint, and Gin. Add ice, then fill glass with sparkling water.
