You Can do as Little or as Much Work as You Want

For Entrepreneurs With remote work, you’re still working for a business and following the same business standards, meaning, you still will be working the same business hours depending on the agreement you have. With running your own business, you have the freedom to work as little or as much as you want. With that type of freedom, it’s also important to understand that your business only gets what you put into it, which also includes time and effort. If you only want to work two days this week, you have the freedom to do that; in the same token, if you want to work seven days straight, you also have the freedom to do that too, you just have to keep an eye on your business’ performance and based on that, you can determine if you want to give yourself an added off day or not… You can use that extra day off to take a trip to the spa if you want!

If you work remotely, you’ll still need to request vacation time because you simply don’t want to have to work while laying on the beach but if your family went on a small trip, you actually don’t have to request time off for that… you would simply work during your trip BUT you wouldn’t be in an office environment!
