Why Vacation Planning Starts Early for Business Owners

โœˆ Sometimes, all it takes to clear that “to-do” list is putting flight and hotel reservations on your calendar.

๐Ÿ– If you’re motivated by vacation, then this may be the time of year when you get lots done – in your personal life and business.

Four tips to consider

๐Ÿ“ˆ When striving to streamline essential work while you’re away, consider the following:

๐Ÿ’ป Opportunities for automation – automatic payments, batched processes (newsletters, podcasts, social posts), automated reminders, and process checklists for team members.

๐Ÿง  Brainstorming what must be covered while you’re away. Are quarterly taxes due? Do new clients need to be onboarded and offboarded? If team members require training to cover your role, determine the best person to be your backup and start training them now.

๐Ÿ’ฐ Engage your payroll company, bookkeeper, or accountant to support roles that may make it easier for your small team while you’re away.

๐ŸŽฏ When you return from your well-planned vacation, could you keep your team cross-trained as your backup?

Where is your next vacation?
