Plan to Take a Week Off

take time offIt’s the last day of the year and you’ve been thinking about your goals for the new year. Here’s the last of my suggested goals for your virtual assistant business in the coming year.

Plan to take a week off at the end of the year to plan your business goals for the new year.

We do this every year and have for many years. We actually take two weeks. We shut down the business. We let all our clients know about 60 days in advance so there are no surprises. They get us any work we need to get done well in advance. They know that after the first of the new year, we’ll be back and raring to go!

In fact I’m off right now. I wrote this and other blog posts and scheduled them to go out during my time off so you could have some information on setting goals for your business this coming year. Now’s a great time to slow down from client work and take time to work in your own business. Most of your clients are probably taking time off now as well.

If you aren’t yet doing this, plan next year to take at least a week off at the end of the year to plan for your business goals for the following year.

Speaking of a new year, what would you like me to write about next in the new year?
