Yes, I believe in going on vacation. I tend to go when I don’t have much on my hands, twice or thrice a year. I like seeing new places.

Going on vacation allows me refresh for work, keeps me alert and open to new ideas.

Vacation is very important both as an entrepreneur and someone who does white collar job. You must give yourself that needed break.

I go on vacation twice a year, by virtue of my job and my kid’s school. I go on summer and Christmas holidays. Vacation helps to relax with the kids. You draw inspiration around you. You get to see other designers’ job and learn more from them.

Yes, I believe in going on vacation once or twice a year, anywhere I can afford at that moment but usually a place I do not know anybody or have any ties.

I believe it helps you get refreshed for work and can mentally create an extra drive when you’re getting back, and it also exposes you to business.

I go on vacation once in a year. Dubai, precisely. The benefit of going on vacation is to relax, see more interesting and valuable things compared to what we have in Nigeria. I purchase gold and trinkets whenever I go there.

Going on vacation is good after some months of hard work. It gives you more exposure, and at the same time you get to know more people. As an entertainer, it’s also an avenue for me to rebrand, and when I return to Nigeria, I become better always. Although, in most cases, I still perform anytime I travel abroad for vacation, and it’s usually worth the while.

No time to go on a vacation as a media practitioner, I just create time to stay off work and refresh.

The benefits are enormous, we can’t work nonstop all through the year we have to rest and be refreshed for new challenges. Staying off work help me to restrategize.

Once or twice in a year, I don’t visit anywhere I just stay off work. It helps me discuss and think of new ideas to improve on my work.

I always go on vacation when I see the need. It enables me to rest and think very well. I always go to Dubai, so I can be far from my family to avoid any disturbance.

The stress I pass through every day is not little. So, I need rest often.

I go on vacation at the first, second and third quarters of the year, because I need mental and physical rest. Vacation impacts one’s life and business very positively because it enables you rest very well. So, when you come back, you would be fit again for the business.
