Summer is here and while we are all looking forward to nicer weather and vacations, from a business perspective we are at the beginning of “Excuse Season”.
Yes, people go on vacation but let’s break down the numbers. This year, from 4th of July weekend to the Friday before Labor Day there are eight weeks. Most people at most take two weeks off (exception for school teachers noted) That means most people work six of the eight weeks. Well, they must be doing something. Why not networking or better yet, looking for business.
While there may not be as many networking events to go to, what better time to go through all those business cards you collected over the first six months of the year and contact people you’ve met? You could get a great networking contact or better yet, a client! Don’t get caught inside the big excuse machine.
