This month, I’m participating in another B-Bar link-up, which poses the question: what are my summer essentials?
I decided to answer this question from my small-business owner perspective. It can be very easy to lose track of time and focus in the summer. With all of the holidays, trips, visits, etc….., if I don’t set goals for what I want to accomplish this summer, I will be disappointed with myself.
As a small business owner, I wanted to make sure that this season is both productive as well as enjoyable. The summer is full of interruptions, so I’m not trying to establish any new routines other than my morning workout. I want to make sure that my business is taking steps forward while simultaneously making sure that I’m giving myself space and time I need.
Similar to Meg’s post, I’ve decided that I wanted to accomplish two things this summer – work towards getting certain elements of my business in order and researching/brainstorming for future projects I have on the docket.
I’m a little more flexible than usual with my schedule this summer. To make sure that I’m not working aimlessly, I’ve made a master to-do list of everything that I want to get done with my business. It includes both little and big things, but by the end of the summer, it is imperative that I have completed it for the next phase of my business.
This summer, it is also essential that I start researching/brainstorming the next stages of individual elements of my business. This component is integrated into my big to-do list. However, some of this research can be done in the car, at the beach, wherever, which is perfect for traveling in the summer.
Whether you are a freelancer, small business owner, or side hustler, how do you determine what is essential for you to accomplish this summer?
