Here we are beginning the second half of the year, and if you’re anything like me, you’re wondering where the time went. You may also be wondering what the heck happened with your business (or personal!) goals. Well, the good news is there’s still time to recommit. That’s exactly what I’m doing.
For me, the dog days of summer have always been a time to take a step back and see what’s working or not working. Here are some suggestions based on my own experience:
- How are you performing against your budget? The good news is, there’s still plenty of time to catch up
- Did you have any big business initiatives you have yet to accomplish? I do (more on that in a month or so!) and I’m using the slightly quieter time in the summer to jump start those initiatives.
- How are you doing promoting yourself and your business? If you’re like me and you find speaking engagements to be effective (and fun!), now is the time to start lining them up for the fall.
- Are you taking time for self-care? This is the one that I have the hardest time with, but for the rest of the summer, I’m not working weekends! So, if any of you get a business email from me after 5 PM on Friday, please, PLEASE call me on it!
What are you doing to make sure you rock your year?
