Business as usual while on vacation

One of the first things entrepreneurs will tell any aspiring small business owner is that long hours and lots of hard work are inevitable, so be prepared for them. But that shouldn’t suggest that business owners aren’t entitled to a vacation every once in a while – far from it. It’s no secret that breaks are needed to avoid burn-out, because a business owner isn’t doing anyone – their business, employees, their family and themselves – any good if they run themselves into the ground.
