Welcome to fall! What a great time of year where we see the colors changing on the trees, football is back and in full swing, and the taste of pumpkin is everywhere. As we enter this new season, in addition to the aforementioned reminders, fall is time for going back to school for many of us and our families. I remember back in my childhood, one of the things I hated the most was that first day of school when we groggily awake to that blaring alarm clock only to hear my parents singing the song “school days, school days, dear ole golden school days.” You can imagine, as a teenager wishing summer would never end, this singing was not welcomed.

Often when we think of summer we think of relaxing, putting our feet in the sand and taking it easy.

Summer is a great time to do a mid-year review of your business and perhaps make some smart moves.
The idea is to work smarter, not necessarily harder. Businesses often prefer to conduct reviews at the beginning or end of a year and maintain the status quo throughout the summer months. However, most of the time you come back from vacation and immediately get slammed trying to catch up and deal with past problems instead of looking for opportunities for the second half of the year.

As a result, businesses end up with the same troubled systems, processes or employees so nothing changes. Then suddenly the year is almost over, and valuable opportunities have passed. Let me challenge you to hit the accelerator on improving your strengths and eliminating weaknesses.
