WOW. It’s practically September. And you know what that means… or do you?
Let me back up at little.
In business, a general rule to follow is that any work you do today to build your business will produce results in 3 months or so. Sometimes sooner, but for those of us who are in business for the long-term, thinking 90 days out is a good perspective to keep us on track for sustainability. Ok, back to my original question.
It’s almost September, what does that mean? You know the answer now, don’t you? It means whatever you do today will pay off in December. And since December is a little wacky with so many holiday engagements, we’re actually talking about January.
2015 is coming at us SO fast –are you ready?
This is the time of year when there is a tendency to slow down. Conscious thoughts like, “Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so I better get ready,” are a breeding ground for the subconscious to give you the message to reduce your efforts and your attention on your business.
So check your head. What’s going on consciously, and what is it doing to your motivation and focus? And to your January?
Speak up below and commit to one thing you will be consistent about in your business – despite the “looming” holiday season – and ensure yourself a happy and profitable January!

As an accountant, this is the calm before the storm. Business owners will soon start panicking over having fallen so far behind with their bookkeeping and the emails and phone calls with start. I’m planning what year end services I will offer this year (different from last year) and planning the continuing education I need to complete before year end. Let the fun begin!
