It's getting hot, how can you run your business on a vacation?
During the summer months, there is almost nothing I think about more than escaping the heat and taking a much needed vacation. I am sure this happens to most of us, and many business owners do leave. The issue arises when your business still needs to function, and you need to check out. How can both of those things happen?
