Is July usually a poppin’ month for the company you work with? If so, why would it change this July? If you don’t know, it might be good to find out. Stay in the game. Stay engaged. It could be your best month, but if you don’t reach out, you will never know. We are in the dog days of summer, but so much happens in July!
If a big part of your job is networking,talking with people, asking for referrals, doing presentations, then now is the time to plan how you will take advantage of all the opportunities you will have during the month. There are family gatherings, picnics and barbeques that all bring people together.
If the work you do gives you such freedom that you can post a picture that’s captioned, “This is my office today!”, and it’s at the beach, network, talk with people, follow up and do presentations while and where you can. Don’t just post the picture. If you are at the beach because it is strictly vacation, that’s different. Take your vacation and leave work alone. You probably need it and we all need vacation breaks from work to stay healthy.
Have some company materials on hand, keep your phone or tablet handy for a quick presentation, and keep some things available to give people as samples of your company’s products. Be natural and be yourself, enjoy it and have fun, but do your work as well. You will have a grand, working July!
I would love to show you more about how I work in July.
