Labor Day officially marks the unofficial end of summer. After the long weekend, offices that had quieted down in July and August begin to bustle with activity again. School is back in session, too, and many students will be asked by their teachers to write about how they spent their summer vacation. For solo and small firm practitioners, however, a summer vacation may truly be only a thing of the past. Logistical, financial and psychological factors conspire against the solo/small firm attorney to make taking a vacation — at any time of the year — a challenge, to say the least. In SFB Online’s new feature, Small Talk, solo practitioner Kimberly Fanady argues that solo and small firm attorneys can and indeed should take vacations — real vacations, as opposed to working vacations. Fanady sets forth excellent advice gleaned from her personal experience juggling her own solo practice schedule and emphasizes the importance — both to you, personally, and to your practice — of getting away. And, perhaps with a hint of nostalgia, SFB Online wants to know: What did you do on your summer vacation? (If you took one, that is.) Did you check your voice mail/e-mail, or were you able to go “cold turkey” and actually take a real vacation? Please send your responses (no more than 300 words, please) to [email protected]. Please include your name, firm name, city and state. We will select responses and publish them on the SFB Web site in the coming weeks. Thanks, and have a terrific September! SFB Online
