Everybody deserves time away from the office. But, do you ever feel like you’re forgetting something when you take off work?
It’s likely your away message!
Setting an away message in your inbox for when you are off work is so powerful! It let’s your clients/prospects know what is going on, so they feel taken care of instead of just left to wonder where you are, and gives you the peace of mind knowing expectations have been set.
Not sure what to say? That’s okay! Here are a few templates to get you started.
Thank you so much for reaching out. We believe in working hard and playing hard, so we are taking some time off to rejuvenate.

Have a blessed day!
