It can be hard to switch off when you’re your own boss and self employed.

But not only is it absolutely possible to take regular time away from the office, it’s essential that you do so.

Regular time off throughout the year to switch off and recharge is essential to avoiding burnout. 

And burnout is baaaaad! 

In fact, it’s the number one reason virtual assistants go running back to their 9 – 5s. Because at least when they are employed by someone else they’re getting paid leave away from the office!

Still not convinced you can take vacation time without losing clients?

Think of it this way - how can you successfully run a business and support your clients like they deserve if you’re sick (either mentally or physically) or feeling resentful?

Yeah, you can’t. At least not long term.

It’s time to ditch the guilt and throw away the misconception that your clients can’t survive without you on call 24/7.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How to take holidays without hiring sub-contractors.
  • How to navigate maternity leave.
  • How to take holidays so that they don’t affect your income stream.
  • How to WOW your clients by prioritising their holidays as well as your own.
