I can feel burn out approaching and really want to take some time off to relax. A nice change of scenery would be welcome but I don’t want to spend time away worrying about losing money or regulars. Up to now I’ve not been off cam for more than a couple of days, and then rarely. How do you handle this?
Can you afford to take the time off? Also, do you work for an agency or are you self-employed? If you can afford to take the time off and you work for an agency, go ahead and request some time off. If you’re self-employed and you can afford it, just make a note of it on your website that you won’t be available from X-date through Y-date.
It’s always good to take some time off before you get burnt out! 😉
I agree with Cookies, if you need some time off then schedule it. Everyone takes a vacation sometimes so I don’t think you will lose any customers or anything like that. If you don’t take a break your customers will start to see your enthusiasm slip.
Thanks for the ideas gals. I am self employed these days which makes me wary of closing the site down for more than a day or two. I don’t want to lose regulars to the competition, but at the end of the day I will probably do that anyway if I don’t get a break.
