Back in November it was announced that Friday 29th April would be given as an extra bank holiday because of the royal wedding, and most of the country’s employees rejoiced. Business owners perhaps slightly less so.
A lot of business owners are undeniably worried about the impact two long weekends could have on their business; April only has 18 business days so is significantly shorter than the average business month. Yet many may also be relinquishing the holiday potential – 11 days off for the price of 3!
What is most likely preventing entrepreneurs/owners of small businesses taking time off is the worry that they don’t have someone to hold the fort and will therefore lose business and money because of it.
Things are quite different with many of the business owners we work with. A fair few of our clients are jetting off for the 11 day holiday, knowing that their business is in totally safe hands and that they won’t lose anything by taking the time off. Our virtual assistants are handling everything for them in their absence – phonecalls, e-mails, diary management, enquiries and bookings – and doing so with complete confidence due to their in-depth training and knowledge.
An 11 day break from their business can be just what busy entrepreneurs need. It’s a time for them to reflect and, as many have said to us, the time when they come up with their best business ideas!
So yet another reason why, in the modern business age, outsourcing the help you need with a virtual assistant is THE way forward. Call us biased, but we’re convinced of it.
Have a great Easter weekend folks!
