So I recently returned from 10 days in Port Douglas, just bliss! Now I’m home I am left thinking – why? Why on earth did I only take 10 days leave???? I think many of us have a sense that the job only gets done properly if it’s done by ourselves, but there really comes a time where you must put faith in the people you employ to run the business in your absence. While I was away I never once felt stressed or pressured to be back in the office, in fact our wonderful employees made a conscious effort to handle all things that came their way without bothering me, together with the brilliant iphones and ipads the office was never all that far away if I really needed to connect.
So here I am sitting back at my desk when I should really be lying on four mile beach taking in the beautiful blue sky and warm silky surf and simply skimming my iphone from time to time – I will know better for next time, the ship does not sink without me! The moral of the story – employ great staff and keep them!!
