How to grow a business whilst taking time out this summer

Many entrepreneurs work an average of 50.5 hours per week because they are reluctant to take time out of their busy schedules. This is much more than the UK average of 37 hours as entrepreneurs are often too scared to hand the reins over to someone else.

Entrepreneurs often sacrifice holidays to keep their schedule running smoothly. In the long run, this is a slippery slope as stress can build up and turn into long term exhaustion.

Organise your diary

It’s important to have a healthy work life balance and to know when your next break from work will be. Planning for the year ahead will help you to evenly distribute your days off so too much stress isn’t built up. 

It can be hard to step away from your business but having at least one to two days off a week, will help you rejuvenate. Stepping away from your daily tasks can also help you become excited about your work, rather than it being a burden.   

Promote work life balance

You can set an example to the rest of your team by actively taking holidays, showing them how to grow a business whilst having a healthy work life balance. As well as looking after yourself, it’s important to make sure the rest of your team take a break to avoid burning themselves out.

Review your company

Stepping away from your routine can help you review your company and think of innovative ways to grow your business. Being so heavily involved with your work can sometimes tunnel your vision so taking a step back can help you review your business and see the bigger picture.

Healthy cash flow

If you are leaving your company in someone else’s hands you want to make sure you have a healthy cash flow to cover any unexpected costs that may occur. A healthy cash flow will also help to put any new business ideas in place.
