Ping! What’s that? Did you REALLY take your work phone with you?
The sun is shining, and thoughts turn to holidays. Sun soaked days around the pool, relaxing dips in the sea and walks along the beach, a glass of sangria with dinner. Ping! What’s that?
When you are self-employed, it can be hard to get away from the ‘office’ but that doesn’t have to be the case. It is so important that we all take a break from technology and from work and take the time to recharge our batteries. The Guardian reported that 76% of small business owners and entrepreneurs forego holidays in order to keep their business running smoothly and Small Business found that more than half of UK small business leaders have five or less days holiday a year, a fifth didn’t have a single day off last year!
Many people find running a small business very rewarding, yet taking a holiday is rarely one of those rewards. It can be very difficult to spend time away from a business that relies on you, and if you are one of those small businesses, who is there to take your calls, answer your emails, respond to customers?
Don’t be one of the 76%, be one of the rest
Did you know that you can hire a Virtual Assistant for a week or two to take care of all of this for you, so you can properly relax and spend time with friends and family?
Perhaps you need cover when your staff are on holiday? You may have some urgent admin that can’t wait until they get back and as you have a small team, others don’t have the capacity to pick up the slack.
We can even keep an eye on your meetings and actions, following up with your teams to ensure everything is on track for when you return, and arrange a briefing for you to ensure you get back up to speed quickly. No-one will ever know you’ve been away!
You might even want to hand over some of those tasks that have been on your to-do list for like, AGES! And we can get them all done for you ready for your return.
You deserve that break. Let us help.
