One of the things that we decided to do this year as business owners who happen to be married was to escape for 2 days where we could spend a day planning for my 2014 business and a day planning for my husband's business.
I made reservations at this great little bed and breakfast in Glenwood Springs called Four Mile Creek B&B (which is exactly 5 miles up Four Mile Rd, which cracked us up).
Although I wish it would have looked like this while we were there...
It actually looked more like this...
which was probably a good thing!
The thing about not wanting to go outside is that it was a recipe for productivity. Not being tempted to go fly fishing or look at wildflowers helped us stay focused.
Now don't get me wrong, we definitely made time to focus on our Gastronomy while we were in the area!
Our two favorites were:
The Pullman... out of this world amazing! My husband loved the duck nuggets, me... not so much. But I always love trying fun things!
Slope & Hatch... although I'm not really sure still where the "Hatch" in the name comes from you can't go wrong with a Gourmet Hotdog and Taco joint.... yes, tacos and hotdogs at the same place! I had the special which was a Hawaiian Hot Dog which was 12 inches of amazingness covered in pulled pork, bell peppers and pineapple.
The yummy food only fueled our creativity in our planning. We both left with a clear vision of where we want our businesses (and personal life) to go in the next 12 months and beyond. I highly recommend this to all my business owner friends! Especially those of you married folks who seem so busy doing the business to really focus ON the business. Much like a road trip, you don't know where you will end up if you don't plan a way to get there!
If you are looking to work with somebody who has a clear direction where they want to go give us a call! We will plan accordingly to get your house sold!
