Firstly, apologies if it seems we've been a bit quiet over the last few weeks...but for better or worse, in fact it's been the complete opposite.
As many of you will appreciate, when you’re managing your own business it’s so easy to get caught up in the day to day that you end up forgetting to do all of the stuff you should be doing (like posting regularly on social/ your own blog to engage with your community/ attract new customers!!!).
The truth is we've been so head down for 14hrs a day, 7 days a week with teaching, coaching, kit cleaning and sorting, business admin etc etc we've barely had time time to come up for air. The danger here is that this becomes just "a job" and we lose sight of the reason we got into this business in the first place - to introduce so many of you lovely people to the wonderful world of paddleboarding in this beautiful spot of Goring on Thames.
So we decided to rectify that yesterday. A last minute drop out for a SUP Yoga class meant there was a spare spot going with Yasmin, our brilliant SUP Yoga instructor. Rather than spend that hour scrolling social whilst we waited for the session to finish, we decided to put ourselves first for once.
And after spending a wonderful hour relaxing in a calm setting with a gentle (yet very fun!) SUP Yoga session, we felt refreshed and reenergised to take on the next day.
Anyway. It’s a welcome reminder that when we take the time to step back and breathe, we realise how fortunate we are to be able to do this for a job in a wonderful location.
See you on the water soon!
