Running a small business takes a lot of time. Even if you have employees, you may not be to the point where you can just disappear for the afternoon. Much less pack your bags and head to the beach or some other favorite destination for a week or two.
Yet getting away is exactly what small business owners MUST do sometimes. It allows you to relax and recharge your creative batteries.
And with the right technology, you can always check in or even take care of something unexpected from a remote location. So long as you have internet connection and a laptop — or even a phone — you can handle anything that arises.
