Are you ahead of the curve or just here for the ride?
Learn from the squirrel!
No, we are not suggesting you start gathering nuts and seeds in the fall, breaking into people’s attics, and chewing the handles off of driveway trashcans. However, there is something to be said for knowing the nature of your business cycle, and planning accordingly.
Almost every industry will see predictable peaks and valleys throughout a year. Spend some time charting and studying your business seasons, and consider planning now to maximize the highs, and leverage the lows.
Slow seasons can be a good time to run specials, dedicate time to training and business development, and to experiment with new or seasonal offering.
