We used to travel much more, but when we had a kid, we decided to put off traveling until he can enjoy it too. He’s 3 now and it’s so much easier to travel long distance with him.

Can Entrepreneurs Take Time Off?

One of the downsides to being an entrepreneur is finding the time to get away on a vacation and recharge. When you’re working for yourself, it can be hard to set boundaries. Most entrepreneurs I know are working pretty much all the time. Working from home can be a detriment in this case because you don’t even have to take your work home, it’s already there. My parents owned a small Thai restaurant and they worked 7 days/week for years. They rarely took a day off and I don’t remember them taking a weeklong vacation at all. Before they had a […]
