“PRE WINTER/HOLIDAY PLANS for Business and YOU” Contest

November  When I think of the Fall-Winter Season my thoughts are of thinking ahead and embracing not only the business sense of self but also the personal time I will spend with family during the upcoming fall/winter and holiday season. Those of you who long for warmer weather may be planning a trip to Hawaii or you may be thinking about planning your “ME TIME” to some with a dream vacation or a huge family get together. How about doing some things on that to do list around the house?

 

 PRE HOLIDAY, VACATION OR FAMILY PLANS? TO DO LIST? ME TIME?

 

PRE WINTER PLANS?Those of you in COLD country usually have a slow down during the winter season…so doing business right NOW and planning for the slow times is on your mind. For most, preparation for the next couple of months for our ever changing market it is most imperative that we have some ideas and our businesses still rolling.  Our marketing ideas, presentations for Home Buyers or Sellers and even NEW YEAR thoughts of updating our database of clients comes to mind.

PRE WINTER /HOLIDAY BUSINESS PLANS.

Think about what you would like to write about. Gear it towards what you are planning for business and personal time.

The following are the 6 simple rules for this “PRE Holiday PLANS for Business and YOU” Contest:

1.     You HAVE to write TWO  separate posts (at least 300 words each), one on EACH of the following topics:

·         What you are planning to benefit your business during the winter months, New Year, Holiday Season

2.     Contest starts NOW and ends November 30th --midnight ActiveRain time.  (12 midnight PST means 3am EST and of course 9pm in Hawaii!).

Just in time - and before 12PM PST. Needless to say, this contest allowed me to create much clearer picture of my 2014 (yes, got that extended planning for the year). And it's been said, it's 7 times more effective to have goals written - so thanks, Sally.

Here are my entries for this contest:
