Bev Bachel’s Big Break

Bev Bachel may be one of the Twin Cities’ most successful (and independent) communications mavens, but she also knows when to say when.  She recently took time to chat with me and then publicly announced her hiatus to fellow writers via the website of Minneapolis’s The Loft Literary Center. 
You gotta love the way she confronts the realities of walking away from stability and, possibly, stepping into “a world of hurt.”  Anyone who’s been there knows that those mixed emotions can rage like a spring river in the days before you set off in your new-life raft…  Bev says:
It’s risky. I’m in my peak earning years, yet work is harder to find and budgets are tighter than ever. The value of my house has dropped, the balance in my 401(k) has plummeted, and the economy sucks. I could be in a world of hurt. But rather than letting my anxiety get the best of me, I’ve stepped away from deadlines and into a sabbatical.”
Bev also talks to Carline Miller, a life coach and co-author of Creating Your Best Life—an inspiring book about goal-setting and positive psychology.  Miller may be all about productivity, but she also asserts that taking breaks can be an “ideal way to recharge your batteries so that you can return to your goals feeling refreshed and re-energized.”

Knowing Bev, her Sabbatical will be a busy one.  But rather than doing what her devoted clients and colleagues want, she’ll be doing what her self wants to do. 
Thanks for the shout-out, Bev.  Let’s chat again when you find yourself midstream in your blessed journey.
