“Do you have any plans for summer vacation?”
Every time I’m asked that question, I laugh. Is there really such a thing as a “vacation” for small business owners?
Sure, you may escape to the beach for the weekend, or pack up the family for a few days of rest and relaxation at a resort, but you’re never too far from your business. Laptops, tablets, and phones have made it all too easy for us to check on how many orders came in, whether emails are getting answered in time, and did so-and-so follow up on that customer’s missing order from wherever we are in the world.
