CHICAGO ( MainStreet) -- Ah, August. The month when Europeans head off to the beach for their usual three weeks of vacation. The month when restaurant owners in Italy and shopkeepers in France close up so they and their employees can get some much-needed R&R. The month when Americans ... pretty much keep to their same punishing work schedule.For business owners, the thought of taking almost a month off falls into the realm of fantasy. Sure, it sounds great, but there's no way their company could survive if they weren't around to keep tabs on everything.
