{Podcast} Savvy Business Show #41: Setting your business up so you can take a break

I’m so happy you are back today we are going to be talking with Liz Theresa of LizTheresa.com about how you can set up your business when you are away.

During this time of year, we have many social commitments, and most of us want to be able to step away from our businesses to enjoy the beautiful weather (not to mention a well-deserved break.)

Unfortunately, I speak to way too many business owners who are afraid to take time off, fearing that things will come tumbling down when they are not there to hold it all up. And I call BS on this! When running a business you want to make sure that you set your business up to be the vehicle that can support your lifestyle. AKA – you have to stop treating your business like it’s your baby (remember Episode Episode 34!? Why your business is not your baby? Be sure to have a listen here if you missed it.)

I have a specific process to ensure that I can take time off while things continue to run without me. And in today’s episode, I decided to also invite my good friend Liz Theresa, who’s about to have a baby and thus had no choice but to set her business up to run without her while she’s out on maternity leave.

We start by diving into how to set up your website for success. This includes tips on hiring a developer, not just a designer. Then making sure you are organizing our site in a way that makes sense to your prospective clients.
