We have a choice in terms of how to view the slow times in life and in business. You can stress & get frustrated, or you can see it as a chance to upgrade your skills and improve the quality of your life.  These times are inevitable; it’s what you do with it that makes all the difference.

Here are some tips:

Network/socialize

Use "slow time" to get out and meet more people to talk about what you offer, learn what they need, help them connect with appropriate resources.  Grab yourself a cup of tea and take the next hour you have to invest in social media.

Relax

This strategy works if you are feeling good about your business and your accomplishments. Use this time to catch up on sleep, read, rest & relax. It’s really important to have time away to help spark creative ideas or profitable insights.

Invest

In yourself. Enrol in a course and expand on your skills and knowledge. Use your time wisely. Learn more about your industry and become even more valuable to your customers.

Give Away

People like freebies. So offer free samples or organize giveaways online and gain some new customers in the meantime.

Nurture

Take some extra time to fill your soul with love & light. Spend more time with your partner, children and friends. Put some extra kindnesses into your close relationships - you‘ll have more to "withdraw" when you need it.
