Trying to run an online business while you're on vacation with family can be challenging, but it can be done with a little planning. Think about how you can be the most productive when you have less time available and more people wanting your attention. Staying focused on your goals, remaining organized, and giving yourself a daily time out will make a huge difference in what you can accomplish during this time.

First off, set realistic goals for yourself for the time in which you will be away from home. You don't want to overdo it when it comes to how much work you will do. I like to write down my personal expectations and figure out how much time each task or activity will take. I also have people who help me with clerical tasks, and these virtual assistants actually look forward to helping me when I'm away from home. I also know that everything will take longer than usual because of the distractions that come with being with family on a vacation trip.

Organization is crucial, and you'll want to practice this long before you leave home. Write down everything you need to do while you are away, which types of activities related to your work you will perform personally, and who can help you if something goes awry. I once was hacked while I was in Europe on a trip, and fortunately I had two people I could email with sensitive information and details of how they could help me to get my sites back up.

Every day while you are away, give yourself permission to take a personal time out. This can be for as little as fifteen minutes, but thirty minutes to an hour is optimal. During this time you will be alone with your thoughts, allowing yourself time to recharge your batteries and think of what else needs to be done to keep your business running smoothly while you are on your vacation. Get your family on board with this idea before you leave home.

As you can see, it's possible to run an online business while also spending time with your family on a vacation, but you must stay focused, make sure you are well organized, and give yourself time each day to think. This will enable you to have the best of both worlds as a parent and online entrepreneur, and it will also show your family that you are indeed serious about building your online business.
