Right now we are in a season where spa owners are often winding down from a very busy and stressful time of year. Sometimes we achieve a level of burnout that is so severe that we feel like it may be time to throw in the towel when it comes to your spa business.
The first thing I want you to know is that it’s OK to want to quit. It’s OK for your goals to shift and your path to change. However, the decision to sell your spa business, something you dreamed of and built, is not one to take lightly. It is also DEFINITELY not a decision to make while you are in a state of burnout. Before making any decisions when it comes to the future of your spa there are a few things you need to really think about.
1) Do you really want to sell your spa?
Seems like a simple question, but if you sat down and told me that you were ready to quit the spa industry and I answered with “Ok, I will help you with this process, let’s get started,” would you be ready to get started with the process? If the thought of actually going through the motions makes you uneasy, sad, or if you just don’t feel ready then you may need to hold off for a bit
2) Do you need more systems in place to help ease the workload of your spa?
Sometimes we are so out of sorts with the organization part of our spa that we feel like we are at the point of no return. In this case it is so easy to think that selling your spa is the only way to start fresh on a new path. This is false on so many levels. If you really take the time to sit down with a spa coach and build systems that will help automate your entire spa, is there really a need to sell? With the help of a spa coach you can take the next six months to a year to organize your spa business and be back on track. You also need to consider that if you actually do want to sell your spa, it will be way more valuable with systems in place. Please reach out and we can talk more about private coaching for your spa. .
3) What is your current mindset?
If you are completely depleted from the business of the past month or if you have been feeling off about your spa business for the past few months you may need some time to really clear your mind. Before you can make these huge decisions on the future of your spa you MUST be in the right mindset. I invite you to join The Burnout Recovery Workshop on December 31st, 10 am PT where we can really get to the root of what is causing your burnout and get you on the road to a better place where you are able to make important decisions about your spa!
