It's September. Do you need a wake-up call?

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

With all due respect to Green Day, I hope that you’re not singing this song: “Wake Me Up When September Ends.”

September. It’s here now.

We’re in that last push for business so that we might end 2011 in as good a position as possible. Flaky economy be damned.

No time to sleep. Here’s what you can do:

  • Network more and do it in a more strategic manner.
  • Connect with clients.
  • Reconnect with dormant accounts.
  • Invest in some refresher training.
  • Start to use social media exquisitely. (Don’t know how? Reach out and get some help. There are scads of resources to contact.)
  • Not getting the results that you want? Think creatively and do things differently…now
  • Explore strategic alliances.
  • Divorce “bad” clients.
  • Stop blaming the economy, your employees, your bad luck.
  • Think positively.
  • Get/be healthy. You can’t work hard if you don’t feel good.

Got it? Do it…Now.
