It’s hard to believe it’s the end of summer. I’ve still got a great vacation coming up this month so for me I’m not ready to say we’re “back to work” but I do see the signs. I was in Office Depot the other day and was surprised how many parents were there with their kids already stocking up on the school supplies.
And that got me to thinking about stocking up on my business development plans for the Fall. It seems that many businesses slowdown in the summer. I know that after all my years in business that July is definitely our slowest month. So many people are out on vacation and those that aren’t are frantically trying to take care of all the work that’s left.
So when the end of August hits everyone seems to kick their business involvement in gear. I know that I already have a number of networking events on my calendar for September. It’s also going to be a busy meeting month. I try to get out and meet with our more “consistent” clients at the least on a quarterly basis and this summer it has been very difficult. No one has wanted to meet (okay have had a few great lunches!). I just got a note back from a client that said “let’s book it after Labor Day”. So we did.
So while I’ve been able to enjoy getting my desk a bit more organized and I can already see that my September and October are going to be very busy. Which I do enjoy, I have to admit. So, if you haven’t already started to look at your calendar and book your networking and business development meetings you might want to start so that you’re prepared when that summer slowdown ends .
Hope to see you at an upcoming networking event!
