    27/05/2021 Duration: 41min

    If you’ve ever thought about how it might look to work less days in your business, check out the experiment my team and I are in the middle of testing. When I first pitched the shorter work week idea to my leadership team, well… I was met with crickets. The idea of the work week happening only Monday through Thursday felt a bit unattainable. And while I was really excited about the idea myself, I know the team’s concerns were valid and so we agreed to try it for 90 days as an experiment.  Right now we’re 60 days in, and have uncovered some really interesting stuff that I wanted to share with you.  Since I’m a big believer in going first and showing what’s possible for you, it’s my hope that this episode helps show you what you need to know about the 4-day work week process -- especially if you’ve been thinking about ways to add more time back into your week.  You’ll also learn more about: WHY a shorter week was something I wanted to implement and how our team why might spark some ideas for you Processes to s
