Yikes! A Retreat From the Computer

The time has come! I have decided to take a week retreat away from the computer for the first time since my trip around the US in '07. Am I having my doubts? Oh yeah, I am!
Here is why:
  • My email will explode into outerspace and I will need a special team of highly trained experts to face it when I return.
  • Those who are contacting me about coaching or editing may go somewhere else and not want to wait for my hiatus to be over. (One week on the internet is like a whole year in real life!)
  • What if I don't want my hiatus to be over?
  • I don't have a VA and am not sure if I should hire one to keep my businesses in the flow...
  • I will be forgotten on Twitter and Facebook (Oh gasp!)
Time is from Monday, April 27th thru Monday May 4th. This may be longer, if needed through Thursday May 7th.

Can I do this? ...Yes?
I mean, Yes!!!
Is anyone taking bets?

yay! As you know I did this for just 24 hours (really it stretched into more like 5 days- those other days I only checked email- no real writing online) It is awesome! I felt totally rejuvenated after just that short amount of time.
You will feel like a new women!

Oh I can't wait to see you at Life is Good! Make sure to say hi if you recognize me first!

Thank you Angie! You were my inspiration, I am already spending more time away and loving it!

Excellent :)
I know you can do it and yes a week is like a year online but your true clients will wait for your return.
I have a retreat from computer coming up in July :) so I look forward to your results!
Peace & luv

Thank you Lou! I need all the understanding I can get :)

Tara, I appreciate your kindness. I will be sure to report my findings!

Hey Rain Why are you doing it?
Did you think you needed a break?
Where you trying to prove yourself something?
Just curious. Maybe I missed something you wrote earlier.
