How do you prep your business to take time off?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here are my top tips:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▪️ Start early. Let your clients know your out of office schedule and how you'll be prepping them to be in good hands while you're out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▪️ Ask your team what their plans are for taking time off so that you're on the same page. Request that the put together an out of office plan to ensure your clients are in good hands.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▪️ A few weeks before you're out, add "Out of Office" hours to your email signature.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▪️ Remind your clients of your out of office time during your meetings with them so it stays top of mind.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▪️See if there is someone on your team that your clients can reach out to while you're away.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▪️During your time off: Put up an out of office message that shares that you are away, when you'll be back and how they can reach your backup if needed.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▪️ Some of my clients also have an emergency email that clients or team can reach out to if they have something urgent.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don't put off your "out of office" communication plan. It's crucial to allow you to take time off and not think about your business 24/7!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Christmas has rolled around quite quickly, as it always does! I’m finishing up on the 19th of this month, and then I’m back to work on the 7th of January 2019. That gives me plenty of time to recharge my batteries, watch lots of Christmas movies, drinky plenty of coffee and hot chocolate, and eat copious amounts of food!
You might see me on social media but I’m not going to take on any last minute projects like I did last year and the year before.

I love the feeling of waking up sweating in my sleeping bag, dew drops on the rain fly and the smell of the mountains all around me.
2018 has been a crazy & life changing year!
I’m taking a little time out on all things rum, to take a deep breath and have a baby girl 💙
Out of office is firmly on, maternity leave starts today and I’ll be back to my rum roots in August 2019.
Big love and salud 🥃
We officially announce the launch of our ARTS blog! Come read & discover (A)nything (R)elated (T)o (S)tart-up on our blog! (P.S. Anyone realised that the capitalised letters of each word form the acronym ARTS? Teehee)
This blog is specially curated for individuals who want to work out of their comfort zone, current business owners (entrepreneurs) and freelancers. There will be plenty of exciting content that will keep you informed and engaged with the world of start-ups.

Our team will share with you an itinerary for the day from our own experience scouring around Singapore to find our favourite public workspace. Check out our qualifiers for a good working/meeting spot, which extends beyond just good WiFi signal!
The man friend and I have a theme this time of year... 😂. .
Sadly we are not taking any trips to the mountains this year BUT next year?! Who knows 🤷🏻♀️. .

Hallucinerend mooie zandcirkels. Een van de vele hoogtepunten van de tentoonstelling 'Out of Office. Kunstschatten uit bedrijven' is de installatie van Job Koelewijn uit de @rabobank Kunstcollectie. Een zandtekening gemaakt op losse pagina’s uit Ethica van Spinoza. Meer weten over dit fascinerende kunstwerk? Je leest het op onze website. #outofoffice#kunstuitbedrijven#jobkoelewijn#spinoza#ethica
