Lisa recently wrote about her sabbatical experience for the FPA's Journal of Financial Planning. Read an excerpt below, and check out the full article here:
Recently, I returned from my second six-week sabbatical in six years. Under two different teams, I was able to (almost) completely unplug from the business. In preparing for my most recent sabbatical, I received interesting feedback from a variety of business owners—including some financial planners. While most were very supportive, many could not imagine being able to leave their business for even a two-week vacation. In a world where many of us will chose or need to work longer—and also need to build a succession plan—a break from our businesses is not a “that would be nice to do,” but rather a requirement for being successful on many fronts.
