Forgoing a Vacation May Be a Bad Idea

By June 1, 2009

Follow me on:

It's sad to see that many small business owners are forgoing any vacation time this summer. According to a survey by Rasmussen Reports for Discover Business Card, over 56 percent of business owners have cut back or canceled summer vacations. The research also shows many are working more days and longer hours this year. The typical mindset is times are tough and who can afford to take time away from their business. Yet, this assumption is far from the truth.

Time away from your business can help recharge your business and spark innovation. A change in physical surroundings and your conscious mind at rest will help your subconscious ferret out some solid solutions to the mounting problems encountered in your business. Any potential loss in business during vacation time can be offset with renewed productivity and an increase in money-making ideas.

What are your vacation plans this summer?
