(Entrepreneur) — It’s been a long, hard slog through the recession, and many small business owners put off vacation time while they struggled to stay afloat. As the economy thaws, more entrepreneurs are envisioning themselves on a beach with a cold drink in their hand. That’s really good news for their health — and the health of their business. The most recent Discover Small Business Watch study found a decline in the number of business owners who canceled or postponed their vacation. Last year at this time, 58 percent of business owners said they’d put off taking a break; now, it’s down to 51 percent.
