According to recent surveys, only about half of all small business owners are planning to take a vacation this year.

And if you’ve been in business less than 10 years, or have fewer than five employees, the odds are even bleaker – only about 40% of you plan on taking off. And even if you do, fully two-thirds of you say you are planning on checking with the home office every day.

Your reasons for not taking time off?

  • Finances are tight.
  • Business can’t run without me.
  • An opportunity won’t be handled correctly.

However, research indicates that these reasons pale in comparison to the benefits of taking a vacation. You will:

  • Recharge your batteries.
  • Get the creative juices flowing again.
  • Make your significant others happy.
  • Give yourself a well-deserved and much-needed break from your routine.
