Hey friends! We did not leave you the last couple of days. We know you missed us. We have just been uber busy working on our podcast we revealed to you last week that we missed a couple days here on the blog. It was just a temporary lapse, but we are back. Working everything into a new schedule we are testing out. You run businesses, right? So you know it is always a work in progress.

Not only that, but we are also running into our busy season with our primary business. What is that, you ask? Say what! You don’t know? Of course you do. Let us break this down for you:

Our blog is a travel & lifestyle blog for us to have fun discussing travel, fitness and other lifestyle topics, including our professional lives. You can also support our efforts when you book your own travel by deliberately selecting our partner links on our Book Travel page. Bookmark this page would ya.

Our podcast will be based on three primary legs: travel, fitness and professional pursuits. Each week, you will take a journey with Abundant Journeys and our guests giving you inspiration for your career, your fitness/eating journeys and your travel journeys with your family. The podcast will be housed here on our blog. And in the next few days, we will have a teaser episode for you to listen to and review. Yippee!

Our primary business is a travel & lifestyle management firm. The bread and butter of that business is handling private corporate, destination events such as conference planning, executive retreats, group incentive travel and the like. However, as a result of performing those functions for privately-held businesses, we end up handling leisure business as well: destination birthday and other celebration events worldwide, family vacations to Europe and other places and city escapes here in the US and Canada.

For me, my favorite leisure service offering is our Out of Town Guest program and our Group Leader program. Each team member has their own favorites,  I am sure, because we all love this business. We get to see people smile… a lot. We are in the happy business, one could say. Low stress, high thrills.

We hope you want to learn more about our primary business, and tell us about your business too. Here are two digital, booklets you can check out:

As if we were not busy enough, we also host our own projects:

  1. Each year, we offer 5-6 custom designed family wellness adventures in select destinations: Puerto Rico, South Africa, Lake Tahoe, Panama/Costa Rica, Andalucia and the South of France. We design every portion of the trips to include age-appropriate activities, daily fitness and clean eating menus. We can say our programs are mother tested and kid approved without hesitation for kids age 6 and over.
  2. Our Event & Conference Planner pumps out a few events for our lady entrepreneurs annually: Ladies Night Out, What’s the Tea 2-day event and we are adding in a 5-day,4-night international destination event for 2016. We also like to host murder mysteries, masquerade parties, city-wide scavenger hunts and more. If you haven’t noticed, we like to have F-U-N, fun! Stay tuned for our upcoming podcast episodes as we announce dates for each of our events as well as our family wellness adventures.

And, if you did not know, I also speak at conferences with two upcoming next month, the Las Vegas Travel Show and the Well-Being Travel Symposium in Toronto.

Yes, there are a few more businesses and projects under our umbrella, but there is no need to bore you. We want to know how well you handle time management and work-life balance? While we are busy as little worker bees, we do have a little productivity secret. Our secret is chunking our time and scheduling our family first, business second. We have no intentions of letting professional pursuits get in the way of valuable family time and it has worked for nearly two decades operating this way.

Do you have any productivity secrets especially during your busy season? Share your busy season secrets in the comments below.

    1. Yes, I love what I do for sure. early on in life, most of us heard, “do what you love and you will never work a day in your life”. I took that to heart. So when people ask if I work… I am never sure how to answer. 😀

    1. So true, hours are still limited no matter what our productivity tools. In those cases, I am a huge fan of delegating and outsourcing. We use to outsouce via guest post on our blog for times we were busy, but we have not allowed guest post in a couple years now. Maybe we need to reconsider.

    1. we’ve been doing family wellness adventures for so many years now. With the wellness trends finally going mainstream people are finally hearing about what we’ve been doing forever. Love it.

  1. My family kind of lives a ways out int he country so to save gas and time we try to schedule appts and errands into one day. Yeah its a busy day with my daughter asking the same question of “are we done yet” but at least I know I have the next day to relax ( when I say relax what I really mean is clean)

  2. I’d love to know what kind of podcast system you are using. Does it support live streaming? Wonderful that you are building your personal brand with podcasting – it’s huge!

    1. Yes, we could live stream, but we are going the recorded route. However, for certain occasions… perhaps while at conferences, we may choose to live stream. We have not decided that yet.
