Highlights from the Summer Episode
When everyone else is taking it easy this summer on vacation, here are 5 ways to set your business up to prosper
1. Get out and about.
Networking events. Fun activities with like minded people. Have some fun and you’ll get your creative juices flowing and solve real business problems. Build relationships and you’ll feel more connected, which builds your levels of happiness.
2. Get a jump start on fall and winter activities.
Write your content. Develop your marketing tools. There are things you can do now. Go ahead and get them done.
3. Develop personally.
Learn. Get fit. Do both at the same time. You have a lot more motivation when the weather is nice than when it’s freezing and there’s snow on the ground.
4. Revisit and Recommit to your goals.
Remember the goals you set at the beginning of the year? See episode 11 for more about setting annual goals. This is a great time to revisit them. How are you doing? Do the goals need to be adjusted? Do you need to adjust your actions to reach your goals?
5. Review your financials.
Your taxes are either done or extended to September. Either way, you’re likely to have your 2017 financial information handy. Now is a great time to make some changes and set yourself up for 2018 taxes, short-term needs and goals, and longer term dreams.
Get Some Perspective
For #4 and #5, it’s very helpful to get some outside, expert perspective. We’d love to give you that outside perspective on your goals and on your financials. Schedule a 20-minute conversation with one of us at businessactivistentrepreneur.com/schedule.
We promise to help as best we can without getting sales-y. We will serve first. We encourage you to carve out 2 minutes to schedule 20 minutes. It’s a great way to kick off your summer.
