The kids are heading back to school. Clients/colleagues/suppliers are heading back to the office after a summer of being elsewhere. And you? Perhaps the summer has seen you thinking about your future. About how you turn those business plans in your head into something real. About that side hustle that could help you ride out the current cost of living crisis (and perhaps become something much bigger than a side hustle). About what it would take to turn your small business into a slightly larger small business.
The end of summer is a great time to do it. Why? Well, we could point to the research that suggests that people just get more done in autumn. But beyond that is the simple fact that, after taking a bit of break over summer for obvious reasons, September is the month when everything and everyone is (literally) back in business.
Networking events are back. The people you might be planning to sell to, buy from or collaborate with are back. We’re back too, although in truth, we never went away.
