That's why we created this course.

"We are recommending your course to any of our colleagues who may embark on a Sabbatical in the future. This really helped my husband and I, set up expectations, and a great framework for our Sabbatical, with lots of margin, and fun along the way! THANK YOU! We will be revisiting these resources every Sabbatical."
