Whoo Hoo! It’s getting hotter here in Tucson. So, hey there summer!
So after getting a few other side projects started an attempt to get something passive in time for summer. Besides I needed also to drop in and kick off the summer with something great to talk about. It’s still time to think about vacation, doing something…I don’t know…maybe unplugged??
Seriously the real reason is to think about taking a moment to literally stop for a few days and try to relax and focus. Remember when I talked about balance in an earlier post? It’s when you are feeling the most stressed that you need to take a moment to step back. This is where the short vacay comes in handy. Use those damn flyer miles and live a little.
So thinking about those roles, a few commodities might be in short supply. So hopefully anyone’s favorite Aunt’s dish to the cookout is not missing anything!
With it being a little change, of some graduating from school of all levels. Friendships will be challenged after all of the ceremonies. Digital life is much closer and makes it somewhat easier, but the distance does not. What better way to make new friends and challenge yourself by doing new things. New experiences. This is what really makes us who we are. Especially if we are fresh from high school and wondering what to do next.
So it’s starting to warm up in some parts of the country but it also seems like winter in a few others. What’s next? Well since it’s summer and a lot of kids will be out of school and looking for work, something to do during the summer. I feel that a lot of kids will be doing something other than working since many will be wanting to spend more time with friends than working. The next is also a turning point in which you can make those changes to your work habits, living habits, or whatever you wanted to catch up on.
The overall look and feel of balance during these trying times is something that a lot of people are looking for. Since the excess of overthinking, over-conservatism, and other things. We are looking for more balance, transparency, and live/work balance. This would include having some beach time in your life in order to maintain that balance and have fun. If you want to revisit balance, here is the link to the post Looking for…
My advice this summer is to work on your side projects and build more on your network. Both personal and working. Try new marketing tactics, or have that coffee or iced tea with a new networking contact. The key to this summer, besides all of the other things going on, is to keep moving forward and working towards you working for yourself and not someone else.
Summer, oh hey…
Hey…there summer. What to do for the summer and make some extra money. That is the question. I would suggest looking at what you have on hand and what you already know. Start there and see what happens in the long run. This is the time of year when you can try things out and see how it works out. The real learning part would be how well you adjust to the market within your niche or out of it. Just try and see what happens and keep learning from it and keep moving forward.
Hey summer, I am looking at you this year and looking to make some waves other than from the ocean. This is a year, full of obstacles both business and political and this will test you. From how you gain reach, those personal goals, and just literally making it. If you are in love with summer, then you want the same passion for your side projects, or hustles that can make you better overall by doing something that you accomplished and built.
Keep moving forward!
