What does summer mean to your business?
What does THIS summer mean to your business?
Are you expecting a rush of new business to come to you? Perhaps other businesses want to invest in you before the markets change, which will happen inevitably.
Or, are you expecting the normal summer lull to be worse than in previous years as, following ‘Brexit’, your customers are being cautious with their investments?
Perhaps you have the type of business which is not seasonal AND is resilient to change in the markets.
In most cases, businesses are expecting some form of downturn or lull in the coming months. I believe, with careful handling, the pace of change is likely to be slow enough that the markets will not suffer greatly and businesses will become cautiously optimistic over the coming months. I think WE MUST be optimistic of a favourable outcome. If we are not, then we should give up now, and that approach is not for us!
So, the old adage ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ could never be more appropriate.
In every lull there is a need to fill the ‘spare’ time or effort with profitable activities. What better way to fill the time than by training and coaching yourselves or your team to perform significantly better? When markets start to improve again, for whatever reason, you can then hit the ground running with new knowledge and skills that will help your business to outperform all others.
Reinforcing skills and discovering new ideas and strategies can only make a positive difference to your sales growth and build your business during difficult times.
July and August are the ideal times to improve your skills and your performance. There will then be time to apply your new skills and boost your end-of-year figures.
Is that not worth the investment?
