Business Value Vacation

Can You Improve the Value of Your Business by Taking a Vacation?

The value of a business can often be determined by profitability, cash flow, management team and other metrics. But there are often many small indicators that can also identify value—or potential problems.  One of these, as simple as it sounds, is vacation time taken by the business owner.
