Long vacations are GREAT! But just think how much less stressful they could be when you have a strong team who knows what their delegations are? Even when one is running a smaller business that manages more of a two or three person team it is possible to take a long vacation. Want to know how? Additional supports.
It may be good to enlist other supports such as virtual assistants or freelancers to handle the day to day duties that take little to no input from you the owner. This way you can enjoy your vacation and only worry about the BIG decisions or delegate them to a second in command if you have the staff.
Another good consideration is to adequately document the policies, procedures and processes to run the business smoothly in your absence.
Think to yourself, am I really ready for a REAL vacation??
