business vacation

Want to take time off from your business but worried that it might be more stressful than relaxing? The truth is, the holiday season can be a great time for taking a break and sneaking in some much-needed R&R before another busy year begins.

In order to get some solid advice about how to let go, we asked a panel of 10 entrepreneurs from the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) the following question:

Q. What’s one tip you’d give a fellow business owner who wants to take some real time off before the new year?

Their best answers are below:

1. Do It

Darrah BrusteinIf your business can’t run without your presence for a week or two, then you have bigger issues at hand. With that being said, take some time to get refreshed, gain perspective, and return to work with a clear head and new ideas.
Darrah Brustein, Finance Whiz Kids | Equitable Payments


2. Book Your Trip Now

Antonio NeveesIf you want to guarantee your time off, then book your trip now. Put it on the calendar, and make the trip non-negotiable by booking with others. It’s inevitable that something will come up attempting to deter your plans. However, when we commit to others, there’s an accountability that doesn’t exist otherwise.
Antonio Neves, THINQACTION


3. Automate Your Processes

Adam CallinanWant to create a situation where you can leave for good amounts of time? Great! Automate your processes. I don’t just mean turning what is manually done into a digital program — although that helps as well. You need to alter the processes that you are involved in to function when you can’t be there. If your business falls apart with your absence, you need to rethink your strategy.
Adam Callinan, BottleKeeper

4. Mirror Your Clients

5. Leave Your Electronic Devices at Home
