POLL RESULTS: Will you give your business a vacation from you this summer?

The Question:

Will you give your business a vacation from you this summer?

28% - I will completely disconnect for at least a week.

31% - I will take a week off, but will be checking in.

25% - I can only handle long weekends this summer.

16% - Are you kidding? I can’t even take a day off!


Jim’s Comments:

Almost every year since we’ve been doing this online poll, we’ve asked about vacation for small business owners. Looking at these historic responses we saw that taking a whole week off has generally fluctuated on either side of 50%. But this year, I was happy to see that almost six of ten of our folks were going to take a week off, either to completely disconnect or to check in. This year, those who can only handle a couple of days at a time dropped, while those who can’t take any time off increased.

I’m going to have more to say about this in next week’s Featured Article, including how what I believe is a connection between these responses and the current condition of the Main Street economy. Stay tuned and thanks for contributing. Don’t forget to take our new poll below.
