The weekends are interesting in the US and it’s definitely you should understand for Doing Business in the US.
There is no one way to spend the weekend in the United States – and Americans are known for getting a little work in on weekends to “get ahead”.
For instance on this Saturday I just finally got a signed contract from a client that was presumably too busy with with their business to sign it until Saturday morning.
And it’s not uncommon to find many Americans coming in on a Saturday morning to do a little more work and wrap things up for the weekend.
With remote working Sunday night has also become a popular time for work to start.
Some events, such as conferences run during or through the weekend.
You won’t want to schedule meetings on the weekends as that is not normally accepted (unless it’s more relationship building — such as a dinner or social event) but you might just find that your client is getting a little extra work done on a weekend and might finally respond to an email.
If you want more detail on US customs and weekend practices it’s included in the Doing Business in the US Course.
Enjoy the weekend…I know I am.
