I went to Lake Powell a couple weeks ago.
I didn’t tell anyone at work I was going.
Every few weeks or months, I go on a trip and I don’t tell my team about it.
And I don’t bring a laptop (I never do anymore).
Not one person on my team knew I was going to be gone for 6 days, and nothing changed in my business.
Customer support still got done.
The OnlineJobs.ph software was improved.
New jobseeker profiles were approved or rejected.
Social media posts were made.
Ads were created and posted.
Leads were generated and followed up with.
Nothing changed while I was gone. Everyone still did their work.
People are always shocked to hear I can leave my business for a week, not tell anyone I’m leaving, and have things run smoothly.
Now, I’m not saying your business can do this. Maybe your business depends on you.
But I’m saying I’ve never seen a business that couldn’t benefit from a little human automation to free up the business owner’s time.

PS. I rarely tell people I’m leaving. It never affects my business. Although…I probably should just to be courteous.
