The year end is near and I personally can’t wait. It has been one of the most exciting and exhilarating years ever from a business perspective and from a personal front, one of the most challenging.

In the business I have learnt a lot, launched new products, entered new markets and been inspired continually by the people I work with – in particular, the small businesses that I call ‘friends’ but may also be called clients to the outside world.

With a action packed two months ahead – spring racing carnival, charity functions, xmas events and new company launches – I know that I like many others will require some time out.

Where do I go when I have time out? Whilst the US dollar is incredibly appealing, this year, I am thinking about a very family orientated festive season. Perhaps heading to Byron Bay, Gold Coast or Noosa.

To keep all the family together, I am in search of a large house that has all the modern luxuries that will make me feel completely relaxed. As an outdoors person, plenty of sunshine, sailing, hiking and alike is really important to feel like I am on holidays given that I spend all day, every day, indoors at work.

The Gold Coast has an abundance of large homes and of course there is the spectacular Koonyum Range Retreat in Byron Bay nestled on the edge of a cliff, overlooking of all Byron Bay.

Where do you go to relax? Are you looking for action or is a yoga retreat more your style. Is Xmas for family or for getting away? I am interested in what other entrepreneurs do during the festive season.
