ive owned my own business for over 10 years and have never really taken a real vaction, so in a few weeks we will be going on a week long cruise. this will be the first time i will be gone for a full week except for my honeymoon when my dad did the mowing but he and my mom will be coming on the cruise with us. i run solo so i will not be do any mowing or any other type of work the week im gone. im really not woried about not actually doing the work because its the middle of the summer and im sure it wont be to difficult to catch up on the mowing the week i come back. my question is,,,,,,do i tell my custemers?do i just leave a greeting on my voice mail saying im away and will resume service when i get back?do i send them a letter explaining? i charge by the month and in my contracts it says mowing service's will be done on a 7 day cycle unless something happenes like weather(rain) and such,it also says in the contract that occationally there are 5 weeks in a month and that 5th week is averaged into the monthly fee and not charged extra for it when it occur's. i DO NOT plan on adjusting any monthly bills because of this vaction. what do you guys suggest?and do you think i am wrong for not adjusting bills because i am not mowing for that week?
