Strange, I had exactly the same experience. I used to make jokes that my business does not like when I look after it.

I just wish I could take an actual vacation.

Well sounds like your doing it tough! hehehe

Its probably a really good sign that:

a) Your generating a passive income (sounds like it anyway)

b) You are able to go for a holiday and your business can survive? not many business owners can say / do that without having an interrupted holiday - which is a good sign of a healthy business no?

Agh but the real question is , did u make enough sales to cover your romantic time off, BEER, WINE, SHAMPS, ETC ETC ETC ;)

Nick,

You are definetely not alone. My best friends has exactly the same conundrum. Every time he goes on holiday (a couple of times a year) sales increase. It's been happening every year for the past four years. It's so regular that he now integrates his holidays into his sales planning :-)

Secretly I know it depresses him!!!!

I have a theory it's his wife employing her rich friends in a scheme to motivate him to take more holidays.

Rollershade, it didn't cover the entire trip, but the bar tab was paid :)

Nick, It must have been your software Gnomes working overtime, while you were away.

Hope that you had a great time on your vacation.

Not exactly on topic (but perhaps related) is that one of the reasons I respect you as a business man is because you are always up front and honest about things. You don't take a week off and then make up an excuse, etc. I have seen other one person companies do this and it is annoying. I know they are on holiday so why do they bother lying about it? Everyone needs a holiday and providing you don't go every other week it should never be a problem.

Morgan this blog is about Nick, Topstyle, FeedDemon, Bradsoft, anything Nick wants it to be - he posted it.

And he doesnt have to make up excuses, He can go away on holiday, it's not like he's going to get fired??? The only boss he has is his wife but then again thats another area of his life.

He doesn't need to make up excuses to go - hell this blog post is about his sales raising whiles he's away.

He told us, previously he was taking a wk off,

And from memory, Nick mentions hes a very dedicated worker. Hell he has less holiday time than i do.
