As an entrepreneur, how much vacation time do you guys give yourselves? A standard 2 weeks? Or as much as you feel like
? And when does too much "vacation time" become counter-productive?
I've never been a vacation-kind-of guy, even when working in the corporate world. As a home-based entrepreneur, my vacation time is largely dictated by my wife's vacation from her job. However, we are homebodies, so "travelling" for us is mainly visiting a daughter and her family in another province.
I don't keep "regular" hours. I sit down at my computer about 9am most mornings; break for lunch and supper (usually a few hours at supper); then keep doing computer stuff until midnight or 1 am. It sounds like a lot of hours, but most of the time (unless faced with deadlines) I just work at a comfortable pace, which I enjoy.
So, I don't really need or want vacations. I enjoy what I do (most of the time) and don't feel the need to take breaks away. And when we do "travel" I take my computer with me and spend a few minutes here and there tending to Internet Marketing things.
