Have you organised your holiday yet? The kids are about to finish school and the weather is, well, British. You might be reading this in the midst of a heatwave or longing to fly off to avoid the rain.
Taking time off when you run your own business, or even if you have a key role in someone else’s, can feel difficult. When I was still practicing law we used to get emails reminding us to use our holiday. I didn’t usually need reminding but plenty of my colleagues did.
I understand the feeling of not wanting to take time away from your business. If you offer a service that exchanges time for money, a week away can put quite a dent in your monthly income.
If you’re contemplating staying behind your desk this summer, don’t. There are some very good reasons for taking a break.
