Small Business Owners, Vacations, Obama

Small Business Owners Pick Sales Over Sun and Fun - ABC News: "Scott Yates isn't planning a real break anytime soon because he's still in the process of building BlogMutt, a Boulder, Colo.-based company that provides content for blogs. Yates did go away for two weeks early in the summer, but spent almost the entire time working. He took one day off to go to a wedding and another day only because he was in an area where there was no Internet connection. "It was not a time away from work," says Yates, co-owner of BlogMutt, "It doesn't really count." BlogMutt coordinates between 3,000 writers and clients who have websites but not enough time to keep a blog going. The company is in its second year, and revenue is up 600 percent. The staff of four is still creating processes to help the company handle its increasing workload. If Yates or his business partner took vacations at this point, he says the company's growth would be slow."
