Everyone needs a vacation!

So Dianna and I are taking an 8 day vacation. That’s tricky if you own your own business. It is especially tricky if you own a standard brick and mortar business. We own a commercial glass company with 47 employees. So getting any time away can cause stress. Here’s how we do it:

A –  designate one person to be in charge. We choose our Director of Operations. He is a director and check signor so he has significant authority to make decisions on our behalf.

B –  Check in often. I set it up that so that if I am needed, everyone feels comfortable to call, but only if really needed. At the same time, I make a point of calling in to see if there are any issues at least every other day.

C –  It’s a brave new world out there. I monitor all my accounts and email daily from my laptop.

D –  Trust those in charge. Obviously you need to do some time spent with prep work here but it pays dividends to develop a great team that you can trust.

…. and we are off to San Diego and Del Mar.


See you soon.
