Top Ten List of Things to Remember as Summer Approaches

David Letterman had his final Top Ten List on his last show 5/21: 

In honor of that, here are the Top Ten List of Things to Remember as Summer Approaches (for entrepreneurs and small business owners).

NUMBER 10 – All networking does not stop in the Summer! Summer is actually a great time to go out and network.

NUMBER 9 – Is your clothing looking a little ragged? Summer is a great time to upgrade your wardrobe. You need to be able to dress the part and look professional.

NUMBER 8 – Unless you play Basketball in the NBA, or some other professional sport, you want to look as professional as possible. A long unkept beard may work as a professional athlete, but less so in other areas. First impressions matter!

NUMBER 7 – Meet a networking contact or two for lunch each week. You should be doing this anyway! It’s finally nice outside (after a very cold winter), pick some place outdoors.

NUMBER 6 – You are almost halfway through the year – have you achieved your goals? If not, how can you reach them – create actionable steps. If you have, set some new goals for the 2nd half of the year!

NUMBER 5 – If you gave up on working out at the health club on January 2, get outside and go for a long walk every morning or evening. Leave the phone home and ask someone to join you instead – in person.

NUMBER 4 – Create a list of books you want to read over the summer. Obtain the books. Begin to read them. (Okay you are right these are three things.)

NUMBER 3 – Get creative in your business – step outside of the box and have some fun.

NUMBER 2 – Go out to eat with friends and family and enjoy ‘al fresco’ dining.

NUMBER 1 – Plan to take some time off and relax. And most importantly, turn off the devices!

Thank you David Letterman – we will miss you.
