Right now it is summer time, and there is no better way than to expand our knowledge and explore new horizons. At Hero Corp, we believe in constant growth. “This growth is what helps us drive forward, and we pride ourselves in this specific area,” says Boyd Parker, managing director of Hero Corp. The best thing any entrepreneur or business individual can do is stay on track with themselves by acquiring new skills and pushing themselves to explore beyond what they think they can learn. Many times we worry about taking vacations because we will not be able to keep in touch with our professional life consistently. On the contrary, there are other ways to have downtime and catch up with work at the same time.
According to an article on Forbes, “4 Ways Entrepreneurs Can Make The Most Of Their Summer Vacations,” by Jodi Goldstein, Goldstein writes, “Every July and August, I find myself having a similar conversation with quite a few founders. They’re trying to prepare their businesses to operate without them for a week or two while they go on vacation, and ask if I have any advice about how to actually disconnect from work. But taking time away is important for entrepreneurs, particularly given the all-consuming nature of startups. Instead of thinking of vacations as a time to disconnect completely, think of them as a time to reflect on what you’ve done, find new inspiration for your work, and meet new people.”
At Hero Corp, we agree with Goldstein because she gives us useful insight into how to spend our vacations and still be active professionally. One of the ways she suggests this is by learning something outside of your industry. She writes, “Having an outlet to focus on something other than work is important for entrepreneurs, but many are so focused on building their businesses that they don’t make enough time for outside interests.” This is not only useful, but it helps in numerous ways. Encouraging yourself by picking up something you have not had time for in the past shows you can start now!
