Towards Remarkability - A Weekend at the World Domination Summit 2014

Today, we have a guest post from Mrs. RB40! She attended the World Domination Summit 2014 in Portland and had a great time.

The speakers and the attendees are all very inspirational. Here is Mrs. RB40.

I never had to serve in the military and I’m thankful for all the men and women who take on that burden. When I was working fulltime, I used to look forward to Memorial Day for many reasons. The last time we had a 3 day weekend was way back in February on President’s Day. Memorial Day […]

Can Entrepreneurs Take Time Off?

Can Entrepreneurs Take Time Off?

One of the downsides to being an entrepreneur is finding the time to get away on a vacation and recharge. When you’re working for yourself, it can be hard to set boundaries. Most entrepreneurs I know are working pretty much all the time. Working from home can be a detriment in this case because you don’t even have to take your work home, it’s already there. My parents owned a small Thai restaurant and they worked 7 days/week for years. They rarely took a day off and I don’t remember them taking a weeklong vacation at all. Before they had a […]
