37 | How to Slow Down for the Summer Without Breaking Your Business
Show Notes

Are you afraid your business will tank if you take a little time off? Truth is, as mompreneurs, we don’t necessarily have a choice about how we spend our time in the summer. With the kids home from school, many of us have increased family responsibilities and less time to focus on our online business pursuits. And I’m here to tell you that’s not just okay, but healthy.

In this episode of The Inspired Business Podcast, we’re talking about some practical ways to keep investing in your business through the summer even as you limit the time you spend on it. Ultimately, as Christian business owners and messengers, we run our work according to our values. Taking time off to focus on family during the summer months just might speak louder to your audience than any blog post or podcast episode ever will. Tune in to discover how to maintain your business and your sanity through a summer of pause.


  • Is it okay to take a break in the summer? How should we view our businesses during the summer season, especially if we have kids?

  • Summer is an excellent time to invest in continuing education
  • My summer reading challenge and a couple books I recommend
