Summertime can be complicated for small business owners. During the long cold months of winter it is easy to focus on your business since a lot of our time is restricted to indoor activities (except for those who love snow, ice, and frigid temperatures at least for those of us in the Midwest). Summers are a time of vacations, graduations, weddings, BBQs, the beach .... Well you get the drift, summers are busy. So how does a small business owner balance summertime activities and the complicated job of running a small business? We found an interesting article at Small Business Trends on 4 Ways to Avoid Summer SMB Burnout. The article recommended the following four main points:
- Put more focus on things you value.
- Revamp your business.
- Re-adjust expectations.
- Treat yourself.
The main point of the article is that summer is a very busy time of year, but a small business owner can find a balance between running your small business and the many demands of summer living. As a bonus question, did you spot the typo in the article in the first paragraph?
Bonus question two, how many versions of the Summertime Blues from the title of this posting were recorded (the answer may surprise you)?
