Team Bonnie Summer Hours: Our 4-Day Work Week on the Professional Creative

Today, I want to share with you all about our team's summer hours and our 4-day work week. As a mama running a business, I know the importance of prioritizing family and rest. During the summer, when things slow down for us, we decided to implement a 4-day work week from June to August. It was such a great experience, and I want to tell you all about it—why we did it, how we did it, and what we learned along the way. Plus, I'll give you some advice if you're thinking about implementing a similar schedule for yourself or your team. 

Discussed in this episode

  • The benefits of implementing a 4-day work week during the summer—including increased family time, opportunities for side hustles, and rest and rejuvenation
  • Communicating with your audience around reduced hours
  • How to prioritize family and individual goals within a team setting
  • Lessons learned and potential adjustments to consider when implementing a 4-day work week, such as managing workload and communication effectively
