2 Things You Can Do To Turn Your Summer Slump Into An Opportunity
Because the truth is, in a few months it’s going to be September – as in Back-to-School, Halloween, and Christmas will happen before you have time to blink – and you need to prepare for those crazy busy months because once you get there you will be in survival mode.
So why not take this summer slump and 1) prepare for that busy season, or 2) use this valuable time to work on those big projects you have planned but never seem to get to doing?
1. Prepare For Busy Season
In my 4 Stages of a Profitable Holiday Season for Handmade Sellers video we talk all about prepping for the holiday season, and if you did stage 4 you have a list of notes of what you want to do next year to be better prepared.
This is the perfect time to reference that list and do some of the prep work you wished you had done last year! And if you don’t have the list, I’m sure you can sit down and easily make a list of some things you could do or prepare now that will make things easier once you are in the thick of a busy season.
2. Tackle Projects You Have Been Too Busy To Get Done
Maybe you want to develop some new products, or perhaps you need to take new and better photographs of some of your products so they don’t look dated. Or maybe you have wanted to do an overhaul of your website and give it a new look – well, this is the perfect time!
You will have some beautifully uninterrupted time blocks that let you focus on your business, your website or shop, and your products.
And imagine how good you will feel when you realize that a summer slump resulted in your shop or your business becoming even better and more successful!
