Working while on vacation?

untitled

I am amazed at how early I am on my computer and ready to work. I love getting up early, and hope I can do well with this day.

Working on vacation is something I have mixed feelings about. Personally I try not to work when I can be around family who I don’t get to see that often. And other times when my family goes off to see friends or whatever, it just depends on what we’re doing, and whether I can get internet, things like that. I think I am going to take some time off around the beginning of August.. Anyway, enough about me. I know I’m very blessed to be working for myself, but some people are not that fortunate. Some people can’t leave work completely behind for any number of reasons. Here are some things you can do if you have to work on your next vacation.

First you will want to do everything you can to automate your e-mail before you leave. There is a lot you can do to automate your e-mail before you leave. There is a lot you can do to make sure clients and business partners know when you will be getting back to them. You can even let them what time of day you will be checking your e-mail each day. If you do not own a business and do everything by yourself, you can also refer people e-mailing you to other people who will be able to help them quicker.

And be sure to have a talk to anyhow who will be taking over for you while you are gone. Let them know exactly what you expect them to do. Will you be checking in? Let them know when you plan to do that. You will also want to discuss things that constitute an emergency. Are they going to be able to call you?.

You might want to write and let me know what works for you.
