Many of you know that Tara and I spend last winter doing volunteer health care and economic development work in Paraguay, SA. It really was an incredible experience – the positive impact on our health and family was remarkable.

The real bonus benefit was that our practice was profitable while we were away, and ran like clockwork. The outlook since we’ve returned has been even rosier: the practice is making more than it would have had we never left, we’re working less, and patients are getting better results. In short, taking time away = more health and more wealth. Counterintuitive? Perhaps, but true nonetheless.

It wasn’t our first sabbatical, nor will it be our last, but this was the final step in a long path toward our new book Escape 101: The Four Secrets to Taking a Sabbatical or Career Break Without Losing Your Money or Your Mind

If you’ve wanted to take extended time away from your practice for any reason, this book will be a huge help. It’s a primer for successfully escaping the rat race without giving up the hard-earned progress in your job or business.

I think the world would be a better place if more of us were able to take the break we need. If you know someone who’s been dreaming of getting away, this might be just the nudge they need. The book has a clear road map for dealing with careers, businesses, kids and finances, and it focuses specifically on making it simple to build up the courage and commitment to live your life deliberately.

You can buy the book via Amazon, or visit the Escape 101 website for more info.

  1. Congratulations Dan & Tara on your book! I can’t wait to start planning my own sabbatical.
    So many of forego vacations and pass-up opportunities because we believe we must not leave our practices. Thanks for mapping out the steps so we can not only enjoy time away, but keep a profitable practice intact and flourishing!

    Keep us posted on your sabbatical – we’d love to hear about your plans.
