This week, we share why we think taking breaks is so important when you work for yourself.

Charlie talks about how she managed maternity leave and Franky explains why she’s made regular time off non-negotiable, describing her approach to scheduling work around the academic year, planning holiday childcare, and putting money aside to cover additional costs or any shortfall in her income.

We talk about systems and processes that allow you to step away, managing client expectations, and how taking breaks could become part of your business model.

We also chat about working with the seasonality of your industry and how to overcome the fear of missing out on opportunities that might land in your inbox while you’re away.
