Back to school time for business owners

Ah, it’s the Friday before the last long weekend of summer here in Canada. We have Labour Day on Monday. Then, on Tuesday, it’s back to school time for my kids. I’ve been racing around trying to get booster shots, make appointments with the principal and teacher, source new BPA/lead/PVC-free lunch containers, go to meet and greets and so on. But, in the midst of all this, I haven’t forgotten myself or my own business.

You see, I see the fall as back to school time for my business too. Going into September, I’m reviewing my progress on my goals for the second half of 2010. I’m setting up a meeting with my mentor. And I’m scheduling meetings with my entrepreneur’s group, going to a few professional association meetings and perhaps taking part in a few panel discussions. Soon enough, I’ll be plowing into some reading too. I don’t know about your part of the world, but everybody slows down in August here in Vancouver.
