“What do I actually want? What is my plan here? Do I want to do this business forever?”
These were just some of the questions Pete Reis-Campbell, founder and CEO of Kaizen, was asking himself. To help answer them, he went on a three-month-long sabbatical.
And he realised the answers sooner than he expected, with the break giving Pete the confidence to explore an exit of some kind.
“When it comes to taking a sabbatical, it depends on what you’re going to be doing. If your goal is to travel the world, it should probably be a year.”
“You have to set an intention or purpose for the break, but also each day, even if it’s something small like a run. Otherwise, you drive yourself crazy because you’re living this semi-retired life,” he says. “When you get the time off you’ve always wanted, you realise how important it is to have an actual purpose in life.”
Come along and hear Pete’s sabbatical story, and how it’s completely changed his outlook on his agency. If you have questions over your agency’s future or are considering a break, this will be a very helpful session.
