Time with family is necessary. Space to recharge the batteries is good. But, it can be challenging to slow down with the rest of the world.
It’s easy to just ignore holidays and keep grinding. We get stuck in startup mode. When you’ve forgotten what a weekend is and are responsible 24/7 for your business, Labor Day can just sneak up on you.
