For small business owners, taking a vacation where you don’t spend the whole vacation attached to your phone or computer may seem impossible. When you work for yourself, you can enjoy individual freedoms and flexibility. Entrepreneurs need to plan to get away and take time off.

As a professional organizer, my job is to help others get neat and organized! I often times work 60-plus hours a week. Running a business is an insane amount of pressure on your day-to-day life. Working with clients in their homes or business is very labor intensive. The business side of running Neat, social media, financials, marketing, advertising, consulting, shopping for supplies, etc.

So how can you make the time to decompress, relax, connect with others, travel and disconnect from your day-to-day workload? 

  • Budget in your own PTO.
  • Save weekly/monthly for vacation.
  • Work ahead on projects.
  • Delegate Task.
  • Plan ahead.

As a business owner, you are constantly thinking of ways to grow your business, create content and take your business to the next level. This kind of thinking can begin to wear on you if you don’t take breaks.

Benefits of taking a break:

  • Reboot your mind.
  • Reset your body.
  • Plan for the future and enjoy the present.
  • Give your business room to shine.
  • Vacation keeps you from burning out.
  • Gain a new perspective.
  • Take time for family and friends.
  • Finish personal projects.
  • Be more productive when you return.

I recently took a break and traveled. I spent time with my best friend and visited places on my bucket list. So much fun and laughter. I feel rejuvenated, rested, relaxed and ready for May.

Happy Spring!
