It’s finally July and some of you may be planning to take a break from work. But the guilt of stepping away can follow us right from the airport to the swimming pool.
As a business coach, I’ve had to listen to my own advice on this one - and it’s not always easy. Have I reached for the laptop from my sunlounger and checked in on work when I’m supposed to be relaxing? Yep, guilty as charged.
So for me as much as you right now, here are my tips for organising your business so you CAN take that trip and actually enjoy it.
🏖️Give your clients plenty of notice.
Clients will understand you need to have a break sometimes and appreciate you telling them nice and early.
🏖️Hire a Virtual Assistant.
Having someone else look after the day-to-day while you’re away is a great way to keep things ticking over.
🏖️Hire a freelancer.
If there are jobs you can’t delay or finish before you go, consider hiring someone trained to do it for you. This can help keep the money rolling in too.
🏖️Do a digital detox.
This one is the best thing you can do on holiday. Don’t let technology drag you back into work mode.
So, have you ever felt guilty for taking a holiday?
