Solve Your Staffing Crunch: If you employ full or part-time staff, now is a good time to start talking about vacation schedules. In my own business, where employee retention is highly prioritized, we encourage people to think through the rest of the year and decide when they want their PTO, just to make sure that they get the R&R they need to stay happy and productive. And if you have more than a handful of employees, you may need to have a process for resolving conflicts if everyone wants to take off the Fourth of July.

And be cautious in your use of unpaid interns. Unpaid interns cannot do any work that contributes to a company’s operations, according to the SBA. This includes any tasks that help you run your business, from documenting inventory to answering emails.
