We’ll Get Back To You After the First of the Year…

We’ll Get Back To You After the First of the Year…

The holiday season, typically beginning the week of Thanksgiving and lasting through the first week of the New Year, is a difficult time to generate new business. There are fewer networking events which are attended by fewer people. A lot of decision-makers take vacation. Budgets are being generated for the next year. We’re busy getting all of the shopping done, houses cleaned, parties attended and traveling to be with relatives. I get it.

The Get It Done Girl doesn’t do “down time” well. It’s just not who I am. So this is what I’m going to tackle during this 7-week slowdown:

  • Continue taking care of my current clients – they come first!
  • Develop a marketing plan and execution strategy for event planning (one of the services I offer)
  • Help a buddy start a business
  • Send greeting cards to past, current and prospective clients to say thanks for their business
  • Organize the information my tax accountant will need after the beginning of the year
  • Identify which past/current clients I’ll require a 1099 from and get those in the mail
  • Write and schedule blog posts
  • Review my LinkedIn profile and edit
  • Read 3 business books I haven’t had time to read
  • Research which Chamber of Commerce I’d like to join

What will you be doing during this slow-down? Anything I’ve missed?
