Happy first day of spring! Here in PA, the line for the traditional free water ice to celebrate the first day of spring is long, and the wait is cold! It’s sleeting, and the forecast is calling for 12 inches of snow! Our spring snow means that schools let out early, just in time for our weekly live mastermind call.

It seems appropriate that today’s topic was all about boundaries. Not just the ones you set with other people, but the ones we set with ourselves. In a perfect world, we would jump out of bed happy and energized, ready to tackle the day and have nothing stand in our way. Of course, we all know that perfect world doesn’t exist.

When an unexpected snow day hits, we remind ourselves that we went into business to have the flexibility to handle the unexpected. Otherwise, we create boundaries to protect our focus and our energy.

Today in our mastermind, we talked about strategies we use to create boundaries in our business and the challenges we face working from home. Everyone had their own experiences and tips to share with each other. That’s the best part of a mastermind!

This is a Fabulous group of women that meets weekly. If you would like to join us and grab a copy of my 9-step approach to protect your energy and boost your productivity, you can grab more all the details at FabulouslyBalancedLife.com/Academy.

If you are having a snow day, I hope you make the most of it and that you stay safe and warm!
