Today I want to give you some great tips about growing your business while you have all of the distractions that come in the Summer.

Yes, it’s time for Summer Fun but you can still have fun while working on some Summer organization and you can begin some Summer Creativity Sessions. You still need to be focusing on all the things you would normally be doing even though you have less time to work for whatever reason.  Maybe your time is limited because the kids are home or you want to get out and play more because it’s nice outside.

Grow You BizWhatever the reason, don’t disregard your business!  You still need to do your marketing to have leads coming in, right?  This is what will bring income in to your business. You need to stay productive.

One of the biggest things I see with entrepreneurs in February is that they typically get into a funk. They set lofty goals maybe in January that still aren’t really coming to fruition or they’ve already backed out of the resolutions they’ve set and for whatever reason get into a funk about business stuff or personal (which in turn affects their business too).

Some of the things that can put us into that funk include:

  • Realizing that what we’re doing to grow our business isn’t working
  • Having negative people around you and saying unsupportive things
  • Not having the funds to invest in or do the things you KNOW you need to do

I did a little poll on Facebook recently along with asked some friends, peers and clients: “What do you do when you get into a funk”?

Here are 20 Ways I found or that came up in that poll that could help you when that FUNK hits you too:

  1. Pray
  2. Say some positive affirmations
  3. Read a chapter in an inspirational book
  4. Get out into nature
  5. Pamper yourself with a massage or pedicure
  6. Call a supportive friend, peer or mentor
  7. Read thank you notes, letters and cards
  8. Review the testimonials of your clients on your website
  9. Watch an inspirational video on YouTube
  10.  Shift your plans or appointments for the day and go do something fun or play instead
  11.  Get to a networking event to socialize and brainstorm with others
  12.  Set a NEW goal and take some action towards it
  13.  Get hugs
  14.  Exercise
  15.  Nurture yourself on the inside
  16.  Take a nap
  17.  Wallow in it all for a little bit – set a timer for just how long and feel it
  18.  Get a caffeine fix
  19.  Straighten your office, get organized
  20.  Watch a funny movie
