Fellow sole practitioners, when you go on holiday, do you switch off completely or do you still deal with client calls and emails and let them know you will respond when you get back?
Whilst I go on a holiday every now and then, I never completely switch off and still field answer calls and emails but defer actual work. We have a family holiday planned for August this year (Covid permitting) and I’d like to completely switch off - no emails or calls. I thought if I sent an email to clients in Feb explaining that’ll be gone for a week and that nothing is ever so urgent it can’t wait a week. If I give them a lot of notice I think it should be fine.
Any advice from other sole practitioners on how you deal with it would be much appreciated. The only other person in the company is my wife and so far I have been unable to leave her here whilst I go on holiday.
