That's it folks!
The kids are back at school, holiday season is over, and you are now back in your seat at work bringing in the orders, preparing blogs, networking, setting up your next projects - the list goes on and on.
It's lovely to be busy again, doing the work you love and everything else besides, after all setting up in business is what it's all about, isn't it? If we are not doing the blogging, entering in the database, creating a leaflet, then we aren't working, are we?
Is this really progressing towards your goals, increasing your business revenue?
We are now in the last quarter of 2016 - can you believe it? What can you do to make the end of the year special for you?
I recently had a planning session with Karen Amos of Amos and Wood Partnership, and now that I have a little spare time, I'm looking forward to tuning into the ideas and suggestions that came out of our meeting.
Karen is really good, she gets down to the 'nitty-gritty' that has been hiding away inside of you, bringing these out and logically talking through and guiding you to the next steps to take.
So if you want to set yourself up with coaching sessions, I would highly recommend Karen.
As I mentioned before, looking and feeling busy might not achieve what you want. Working hard on the wrong stuff can hurt your business and it may be time to step back and decide what you need to do to grow your business.
It might be you have to delegate some of your daily tasks to free up time to network, reconnect with your previous clients, or even to re-evaluate where you are now.
Is it time to "raise the bar"?
