We were trained during our early school years that summer equals time off. Toes in the sand, naps under a shade tree, late night BBQs and care-free living, camping under the stars, midnight swimming, waking up at noon. Summer beckons us to slow us down and find time to escape.
Then you graduate and the ‘real world’ lets us know what’s what.
Small business never sleeps. We always have one more, all right 100 more things to do. Taking time off is a challenge. It is also a necessity. We all need time to recharge and refocus.
Questions flood our minds and wake us with 2AM panic attacks at the mere thought of taking time off. Will my business survive if I take a week off? Will our customers go elsewhere? How will we let folks know? Who’s going to run the show? What if… etc.
So how can we (small business owners) escape?
Maybe we can’t distance our selves completely, but we can systemize our get-a-way. That means a little planning mixed with technology. Online tools can help.
If you are living large, when you arrive at your vacation destination, you’ll be in a place where there’s no cell reception, the WiFi stinks, the fish are biting, the BBQ is tasty and the iced tea is endless. Enjoy your summer!
