Family Brand Podcast

Hey, Family Brand fam! Mellisa here, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to finally drop this episode featuring our chat with the amazing Allison Caffrey. It’s been tough keeping this one under wraps because Allison’s wisdom and insights are absolutely game-changing for entrepreneurial families!

Allison is the founder of the Operations Agency, a bona fide organizational wizard who streamlines businesses to run like well-oiled machines. And why does she do that? So you, as owners, can focus on what truly matters – raising your families and doing what you love!

Allison’s got a brand-new book that I’m super excited about! It’s called “The Sabbatical Method: How to Leverage Rest and Grow Your Business,” and she gave us the first sneak peek! In “The Sabbatical Method,” Allison talks about the power of strategic rests in business.

We all know that balancing work and personal life can be tricky, especially when you’re a Mompreneur like Allison (shout out to her adorable boys, Frank and Jack!). That’s when she realized something had to give, and the concept of strategic rest started to take shape.

Now, you may be thinking, “rest in business, really?” But hear me out, Allison’s onto something BIG. Her method is all about creating room to let things evolve naturally, letting you see what breaks, who thrives, and where the hidden opportunities lie. And trust me, it’s not as easy as it sounds!

This is where her book comes in. As Allison explains, rest isn’t just beneficial, it’s essential, just as crucial for entrepreneurs as it is for climbers preparing for Everest’s demanding ascents. In this book, Allison provides a five-phase framework to help founders, CEOs, and leaders like you strategically leverage rest, thereby improving business operations. This is what she calls the Sabbatical Method.

Dozens of people across America are already benefiting from her insights, acclimating to the pressures of entrepreneurship as they scale their businesses. I have no doubt you will too.

That’s all the sneak peek you’re getting for now! You’ll need to hit play on our podcast to hear the rest of this super insightful conversation and get more deets about her book. 

So, ready to unlock some life-changing strategies? Then don’t wait another moment. Hit play to hear the full episode!
