How long have you been in business? What’s the longest time you’ve been able to be away, fully unplugged? When was the last time you took time off from your business, fully unplugged? If your answers to these questions make you cringe, let me help. I want to support you in taking your life back from your business. In today’s episode, I’m sharing an interview from 2021 with a longstanding client. I hope this conversation will inspire you to take action and make plans for your business to run without you. Make the 4 Week Vacation®️ Pledge today as your stake in the ground to say, “I need this, I deserve it, and I’m ready for it!”

Today’s episode is a replay of Episode 166, an interview with one of Dr. Sabrina’s very first coaching clients. In 1998, Chuck Parmely, and his wife, Cynthia, became the owners of the Overhead Door Company of Riverton-Lander in Wyoming, which began as a family business. Having never taken more than five days off in a row, Chuck bought into Dr. Sabrina’s vision of taking his life back and implementing the 4 Week Vacation®️. Listen as Chuck describes how he has taken back his life from his business!
