What do you think of when you hear that word? Unplugged for me almost always makes me think of Eric Clapton in the 90’s when he played that guitar of his beautifully on MTV. But, I digress. What I am talking about when I say the word unplugged in this context is unplugging from social. Unplugging from social, email, phones, and your computer, period.
Does that idea make your heart beat harder? If so, you are the perfect candidate for an unplugged session. As an entrepreneur you work hard. You spend a lot of time in front of your computer and on your phone, and let’s face it, it can get pretty tiring.
Not only that, but it tends to fry your brain so that you are not 100% and as sharp as you are when you take a break from it all.
This past week, I spent a week in Sonoma. I took my Macbook, iPhone, and several other tech devices and when I arrived at my cottage surrounded by redwoods, I realized that I wouldn’t be needing any of these things. Not by choice exactly, it is simply that there was no cell service or internet available. All I could do was relax into it and enjoy the beauty of the place, and the hot tub on the back patio. When I looked up, all I could see were 200 foot high redwoods that were spectacular. That really brought it all into perspective. Plus, I was able to be completely present with my son, Theodore, the whole time. It was amazing! This time away from technology really cleared my brain too.
Sitting on a plane somewhere high above the Rockies right now, I feel so inspired to “Create.” I feel inspired to connect with you, and think of the many ways we can work to make a difference for you in your business and your life.
Thanks to this retreat from technology, I am rested and ready to attack our next project, a rich and robust Facebook Marketing Program, created specifically for the entrepreneur with a family. It will help you become ultra-successful at Facebook Marketing, all while saving you time and energy so you can focus on making more money, supporting your family, and creating extra time to spend with and enjoy them. I’m grateful for this “time off” because making a difference for you is more rewarding than you could know.
