Many accountants start out as 9-to-5 employees, working for someone else. They find themselves stressing out at work and fantasizing about starting their own practice– working for themselves and avoiding the daily grind.
However, all entrepreneurs quickly learn that being a business owner can be one of the most stressful things a person can do – even more stressful than being an employee. And it’s a heck of a lot of hard work.
It’s easy to become disenchanted with your own CPA firm, and you might begin dreading something that used to be your passion.
Sometimes, the best remedy is a short break – time away from your normal routine.
Don’t underestimate the power of a small break. It gives you time to reflect and relax. Coming back to your practice refreshed and enthusiastic will enable you to perform at your best – which translates into improved performance for your CPA firm.
It’s too easy to convince yourself you don’t have time for R&R. Make time for mental health breaks. It’s actually a brilliant strategy for keeping yourself and your inspirations fresh and potent for your firm’s success.
