Make it a Family Affair.
Now that the holidays are upon us, we all want to spend more time with our families enjoying the season. While we want to take all this time off to enjoy it with our loved ones, we know that if we do that, Santa won’t have the means to bring a big Christmas to all the girls and boys. Instead of letting a business trip stand in the way of family time, make it a family affair and bring them with you!
This trip will take a little bit of planning before you go, but it is possible to take the crew along and enjoy some family time. Before you go, you will need to:
- Find time in the family schedule. Is there time during the holiday breaks?
- Okay it with the boss. They need to know that you’re going to fulfill all professional requirements.
- Plan out the trip itinerary. Set expectations beforehand, including the business schedule and the family time schedule.
- Don’t forget to put it in your minutes! Send us all of the details and we’ll make sure they are documented correctly for you!
There are some great benefits of combining business and family trips. You’ll save money that would have been spent on two trips. Your family will get to spend more quality family time together. Also, your children will have a greater appreciation of Mom or Dad’s hard work!
Today it seems like there’s not enough time in the day to accomplish everything we want, but if we take a little time to make some plans, we’ll find that the days aren’t short after all!
