A survey from the U.S. Travel Association found that 40% of Americans don’t use all their paid vacation days. “Unfortunately, workers do not seem to realize that forfeiting their vacation time comes at the expense of their overall health, well-being and relationships,” said Roger Dow, president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association.
The same applies to small business owners, many of whom are also work martyrs.
A survey by OnDeck Capital found that only 57% of small business owners plan to go on vacation this year. Those who do won’t fully remove themselves from work. Sixty-seven percent say that they’ll check in at least once a day.
What’s more, nearly half (48%) of small business owners don’t make taking vacations a priority.
To all the small business owners reading this: You work hard and are very dedicated to the success of your businesses. But you also deserve a break. Make sure you give yourself some time away to recharge.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a Labor Day weekend to enjoy.
