Is Busyness Equal to Success?
There’s a prevailing myth in the entrepreneurial world that equates constant busyness with success. However, even the most devoted business owners need downtime. Taking time to unplug is not about laziness; it’s about preservation and revitalisation. Periodically unplugging helps recharge your mental well-being, leading to clearer decisions and innovative ideas.
How to Disconnect Safely
So how do you take a step back without letting your business fall apart? The secret lies in effective delegation. It’s about entrusting tasks to skilled individuals who can handle them as competently as you would. This allows your business to continue running smoothly in your absence, letting you take that much needed break without any anxiety.

The thought of delegation might sound daunting. Maybe you’ve thought, “No one can run my business like I can.” But effective delegation isn’t about replacing yourself; it’s about multiplying your capabilities. Our advanced delegation course, Dare to Delegate, is designed to empower entrepreneurs like you. You’ll learn the ins and outs of effective delegation, ensuring that when you decide to unplug, your business continues to thrive.
Ways for Business Owners to Unplug
Running a business is often a marathon, not a sprint. Regularly unplugging ensures you have the stamina to keep going. This also enables you to serve your clientele at the highest levels. Our founder Danielle is a big fan of scheduling times for “rest” in her calendar. By scheduling ahead, you are making a commitment to yourself to stay on top of your well-being and ensure you are well rested and recharged, so you can continue to show up for your business and team when it matters most.
Danielle’s favourite ways to unplug include:
- Getting outside tech-free, and grounding oneself with nature
- Any form of meditation: whether that be guided, journaling or a yoga session
- Book in time with family and loved ones, whether it’s a weekly dinner or a walk with friends
To achieve worry-free rest, the best thing you can do as an entrepreneur is equip yourself with the proper delegation skills. Visit our Dare to Delegate advanced course if you’re down to add this to your business toolkit.
