It’s finally June and summer seems to be here.
As someone said to me the other day, “Now we can switch from complaining about the winter cold to complaining about the summer heat and humidity.”
It’s kinda true, isn’t it?! It’s what we do here in Indiana! 😉
I know that when summer arrives some coaches continue business as usual and for others things slow down. Some coaches and business owners even take the summer off. There’s no right or wrong way to do things – only YOUR way. But definitely make the choice because it’s yours to make.
If you are preparing to slow down this summer, be sure to add us to your list of fun things to do. We’d love to see you at one of the upcoming events – especially if you haven’t been able to join us previously because of your hectic schedule.
As an example, here are some photos of the May program with Jim Smith. We had such a great time! The presentation was informative, interactive, and included plenty of coaching tools and ideas for us to use in our practice.
For my own coaching business, things do slow down a bit in the summer – by my design. I love to travel and I spend several weeks here and there throughout the summer relaxing right here in the state – in the woods (usually Brown County) or at a lake (Lake Wawasee, Lake Lemon, and Lake Michigan). I do a combination ‘work and play’ vacation when I do that, talking with some clients, but mostly focusing my energy on planning for the fall.
Summer is a time for me to recharge my batteries and re-energize my coaching offerings for the fall season. I look forward to this time each winter – in fact, it’s what keeps me going on many of those sub-zero days.
What do you have planned for this summer?
And how will you keep yourself energized? I encourage you to build in some time for yourself – whatever that looks like – so that you can continue to serve at your best.
Well, there’s much more to tell you about, so keep reading. Scroll down. Stay connected. Be an active part of this community. And definitely plan to attend chapter events this year.
I can’t wait to see you again or meet you for the first time!
