Cures for Your Summer Business Slump

It’s officially summer and for many of us, it’s a slow time in our business. I love snow cones, pool days, and road trips, but I also really love to work (and have money in my bank account!).  If you are feeling a little freaked out and maybe underprepared I feel ya! The good news is you can actually use this time while you are not working in your business, to work on your business and make more money when business picks up again.

This is the perfect time to work on your business!

Plan – While you have time to let your thoughts breathe a little take a 10,000-foot view of your business. While you are soaking up the sun allow yourself to dream about what the future of your business looks like and make some big goals. Think about what has been working and what you would love to change. This is a great time to make some changes, even if they are just small tweaks or long term goals.

Organize – Systems can make or break when you need to maximize each hour. This is a good time to work on your onboarding system. Set up folders in your email providers. Try out automation platforms or clean up your workspace.

Prepare – Work ahead! Make out your content calendar. Write a bunch of blog post. Set up your newsletters and social media to automatically go out. How nice would it be to not have to worry about that for a few months!?

I crossed a big one off my list by completely redoing my website. I have been thinking about the direction of Tipsy Studio and changing my services for months so I finally did it. I would love to hear what you guys think!

Drink your wine, and enjoy your summer. Because winter is coming and we will all be watching the final season of Game of Thrones sooner than we think.
