You’ve heard the saying that there’s no better time to plant a tree than 20 years ago. And the next best time is right now. That holds true for so many parts of life and business. The best time to quit smoking, eat better, start exercising, save for retirement… You get the picture.
And so, when I hear people talk about starting to work the Profit First system and they decide to wait until January 1 or next quarter or whenever, I want to shout at them that NOW is actually the best time to start. Today.
I don’t know what it is about summer, but it always feels like a great time to reset. It’s midway through the calendar year, things seem to move a little slower, and business definitely slows down as clients take off for vacation. (Which I hope you’re doing too!)
If summer is a stressful time because you’re not bringing in the revenue you want, there are some things you can do to combat this in the future. If you’re already in the thick of slow months, we have some ideas for how to get more people in the door right now.
