As an entrepreneur, you may find it hard to take a day off from work just to have a relaxing time with the girls–especially if your business is going well.

We understand that you want to show pride in your company and celebrate its success of it, but believe us when we say that this day isn’t about corporate work. Galentine’s day is an excuse to plan out the perfect afternoon with the gals in your life that keep you moving forward. Leave it to us to help your dream day with your girlfriends!

Happy Galentine's Day

Step One: Productive morning

Since you’re most likely not spending Valentine’s day with your significant other, plan to get an early start on the day before everyone wakes up. Set out clothes for the following day and pack a bag with essentials like makeup, extra earrings, sleep masks, etc.

This way, when you wake up you are ready to get started on your day of festivities with the gals. Galentine’s day is not just a holiday, but a time for women to rally together and support each other in their business endeavors.

Step Two: Galentine’s Day Brunch

Since you are treating yourself and the girls, why not treat them to a delicious breakfast this Galentine’s day? Be sure to plan and make reservations at a brunch establishment near you to start the day right. You can even plan to have a box of chocolate-dipped strawberries, croissants, and fresh fruit delivered for the perfect sweet treat.

Step Three: Plan your day

After breakfast is finished, it’s time to get ready for your outing! While you might not be planning on going out to a fancy dinner with the girls this Galentine’s day, it can’t hurt to look good. Think of this as one last chance to feel like Cinderella before returning to reality.

If you don’t want to do any physical activity during Galentine’s day but still want to be productive in making memories with your girls, schedule appointments to do something you don’t normally have time for such as a day at the salon. Spa days are said to boost creativity, so plan on getting massages, mani-pedis, facials, etc. One of our favorite ways to treat ourselves is to indulge in a relaxing pedicure that will make you feel confident in and outside of the office. During these chilly winter months, it doesn’t hurt to reward yourself with a little TLC this Galentine’s day.
