2017 is flyyyyyying!!!!!! Perfect time for a flashback... Years ago I got some smart advice that ultimately reinvented my business life. This advice was so profound, so powerful, so empowering. Read on... It was late November, and while everyone was winding down and gearing up for the holidays I was anxious and nervous. I knew we'd had a good year, but we'd also taken on more overheads, and the sales out look for the coming months looked bleak. Really bleak. So instead of trying to cope with the problem I started looking for options, for solutions. I didn't want my friends to know I was near freaking out, but I can tell you I wasn't sleeping well at all that Nov/Dec - I was doing A LOT of research. I started bringing the topic up with other business people (instead of just talking chit-chat nonsense). Soon, advice from a few different sources started to resonate. These guys were wealthier than me and had businesses doing better than mine. The advice? Simple, yet different. "Don't rest. Don't stress. Dig in, dig deep, and do the work preparing for the quiet season. Work your ass off. But not doing what you normally do." The key was in that little word "preparing". So, I figured it out. And boy, did it pay off.
When the ‘quiet season’ came - we were... busy.
While our opposition was complaining, tightening the budgets, and being general sad-sacks - we were having meetings with prospects, we were preparing quotes, writing invoices, we were collecting deposits, we were delivering on sales.
We had cash flowing in and we exited the ‘quiet season’ ahead of the game. ----------
While average owners are thinking about how to handle the busy season, smart owners know that the busy season will take care of itself - it’s the quiet season that needs attention. And it needs attention in advance.
---------- My business life was never the same.
