Really Simple Ways to Enjoy Your Summer Vacations and Still Be Productive in Business

It’s hot, the kids are out of school and your schedule is all topsy-turvy.  Yep, it’s summer time!

This is the time of year that many families, mine included, take week long trips to destinations of fun and sun. Summer may be here but that doesn’t mean you have to get wilted like a head of lettuce in the heat managing family and business.

If you’ve got family trips planned you can still manage your entrepreneurial activities and have fun.  If you absolutely do not want to look at anything having to do with work while away, automate as much as possible.

Do you send out a weekly newsletter?  Type it, edit it and then set it up to go out automatically from your email sender.

Do you have an internet radio show that you do weekly?  Pre-record a session and then (based on your account) when the time comes, have it play automatically. Be sure to let your listeners know that you wouldn’t be taking calls that day.

Have a video you do every week?  Pre-record.  Have a show you’re supposed to be a guest on but it falls during your family’s vacation? Ask if you can Skype or participate with a webinar.  Hey, 30 minutes during the vacation is better than not going on the vacation!  Your family will appreciate it!

Are you getting the picture?  You can still enjoy your summer vacations and manage your entrepreneurial activities at the same time.

If you don’t mind doing a little work while the kids are splashing in the pool or your spouse is lounging in the sun, then use the scenery of where you are to kick start your writing or give you creative ideas.

Write down ideas that pop into your head while vacationing.  Keep a keen look at what others in your niche are doing.  Heck, make it an effort to visit and yes, spy on what experts where you’re located are doing.  Yes, you’re vacationing but your business antennae should still be working.

Most of all have fun and enjoy yourself this summer.  Memories last a lifetime!

Be Blessed!
