Happy Thursday. It’s summer here already in Florida. The kids are out of school, and I’m enjoying the sunshine (and afternoon storms, even).
Well, yesterday we got the news that we’re a one-income family again – mine. My husband volunteered to be laid off from the teaching job that he loved, so that someone else in his department could keep their job. It’s wonderful to have that flexibility, but change is also scary.
Ironically, I wrote about transitions and change at Sparkplugging the other day. If you’re going through changes in business or in life, it may be helpful information for you.
Many in business view summer as a time to kick back and relax, which is totally fine.
However, those of us that give a huge push for the next three months will see big rewards in the fall when business picks up again.
Which one are you? Yes, summer is for fun, but… it’s also a time to get your ducks in a row and give your business a boost, while things are slow.
I’m not saying you need to bust your butt, BUT – planning your work strategically this summer can really give you results.
For instance, have you seen my Rock Star Blog Tour yet? My friends were worried that people would copy my idea. I doubt it. You know why? Scheduling out three months of blog posts — not an easy task. Orchestrating the logins and topics for each blog? Not an easy task. It’s work. And, it’s summer. Anytime you’re willing to put in the extra effort in your business you usually stand out.
In fact, I’m now going from June through August on my tour and ending at Jimmy D. Brown’s blog which I’m totally psyched about.
If you haven’t seen the lineup for this summer, take a peek.
