How to Take a Vacation Without the Internet
Even though we can work from anywhere and can dictate our own schedules, it’s not often that we allow ourselves to take non-working holidays, especially ones where we’ll be completely off the grid with no phone or internet access at all.
I never though about this issue until about eight months ago when I got engaged. In another month, we’re going on a Caribbean cruise for our honeymoon, and I have no idea if I’ll even have phone, much less internet, access. But then again, do I really want to?
I don’t know about you guys, but it’s insanely difficult for me to stay away from the computer and work. Even when I’m not working on client work, I’m always checking emails, Twitter, Facebook, writing blogs or shopping online. This makes me wonder how I’m going to survive almost two weeks without the internet.
Is it possible? What will happen to my clients? What if I come home and there’s no business left? These are just some of the scary thoughts one might have after running a very successful and busy business for a few years.
I’ve done a lot of research and planning to make sure nothing goes wrong while I’m going and to make sure I still have a business left when I come back. Here’s how to take your vacation without any electronic devices tying you to the grid.
