Brandon Frere: Should a CEO Take a Vacation? Yes!

Press Release ( - PETALUMA, Calif. - Sep 12, 2018 - For an entrepreneur, taking time off can seem like a business and momentum killer. But, according to a recent article in Entrepreneur, taking a break from work and its heavy responsibilities is highly critical for entrepreneurs. Working without a break is compared to running continuous marathons — at some point, the rigors of constant long distance running at top speed is going to require some downtime. For Brandon Frere, CEO of Frere Enterprises and other ventures, even though taking time off might be a logistical challenge, it is critical to making a venture work long term.

“It can be difficult to tear yourself away,” said Frere. “Most entrepreneurs are high-energy, highly productive individuals so leaving behind everything that you have sweated and bled to build can seem impossible. Still, everyone needs to pull away to rest and reset.”

Planning is key to decide how and when to take a vacation, according to the article. Be sure to consider shorter travel times, so that the refueling of body and soul can be maximized. Also, it is best to take care of matters that are scheduled to happen during a vacation prior to leaving, so that the phone isn’t going off the entire time. And try not to schedule a vacation near or during the kickoff to any major campaign or event.

Clarity is also important. Let everyone know how long the vacation lasts, what the impact on each key employee will be, and what they need to know to do their jobs. Emergencies should be the only reason to contact the CEO, and employees must have a very clear vision of what defines an emergency. The idea is to build enough of a solid framework to be able to feel trust in the staff and the process so that a business leader can stop leading the business for a few days.

“Whether you are climbing a mountain, sipping a drink on a beautiful beach or hiding out in a cabin in the woods without internet reading mystery novels, all that hard-charging work means that you have to recharge from time to time,” said Frere, “With some planning and some belief in the team you have built and left in charge, you can rest up and come back refreshed and ready to rock.”
