When’s The Last Time You Took A Vacation?


Ask any small business owner when their last vacation was, and the answer is inevitably the same – “What’s a vacation?” Trust me, I totally understand.. It’s tough to leave your business behind, but all work and no play actually makes you less productive. So even though I’ve got a mountain of work to tackle, I’m taking a much-needed vacation! (And we’re flying for free, thanks to all the points I racked up on my American Express Gold Card)

But the key is to truly “unplug” from your job. Just recently, I got a flyer from Carnival Cruises promoting their new wi-fi and cell phone service.. I’ve never understood why people would need internet access while they’re relaxing on vacation, but people are strange. The teenagers are probably checking their MySpace profiles 20 times a day, while Dad is checking his work e-mail every few hours. One of the things I like about cruises is that there are no annoying cell phones (and douchebags loudly talking on their Bluetooth headseats) – But it looks like that will change shortly! Soon you’ll see everyone laying out by the pool with their laptops and Crackberries in hand, and those same people will return to work the following week no less stressed than when they left!

That’s not my idea of a good time. So I’m off, completely unplugged from the world, with only one goal in mind – TO RELAX! No laptop, no cell phone, not even my iPod. I’ll pass the time with books and magazines (remember those?). See you guys in a week!
