Autumn usually finds me trying to drum up work now that the kids are back at school. I love the time I have with them over the summer but it tends to lead to a bit of a slump. My marketing efforts drop off and when projects end, as they have this year, there isn’t a waiting list. Mainly because the people I work with have been away too.
Of course, there are plenty of industries where the summer is completely manic. The wonderful travel agents I know look after their customers while they’re away. Even if the work’s been done making the bookings the customer care doesn’t stop.
Autumn gives most of us the opportunity to get back to a bit of normality. That’s why it’s the perfect time to review your goals.
