In our last tip, we talked about some solutions to the challenges of juggling family and business during the summer months.

Summertime is also an ideal time to get back to the basics and position your business for explosive growth by the time fall rolls around. Keeping in mind that there is a definite 30-90 day cycle to business - what you do right now will dramatically affect your income in the late summer and early falls months.

Whether you are brand new or a seasoned consultant, starting over again can give your business a much needed face-lift. If you are someone who has been around for a while, I encourage you to read this next series of emails with an open mind. Even if these are things that you are already doing it never hurts to begin again or at the very least read and save these tips as training tools.

Today's tip…revisit or (if you are new - build) your list of 100. Don't forget FRANK - Friends, Relatives, Acquaintances, Neighbors and people you meet through your Kids Activities.
If you've been in business for awhile we encourage you to reconnect with the folks on this list that in the past weren't ready to hear about your business. You will also be ready to add new people to this list from the parties you've held and booths that you've worked. You may also have people to add from your life that you'd not considered when you made your original list. Don't forget, it is not unusual for people to need to hear about something more than once before making a positive decision.
