Summer Fridays: What Are You Doing With Your Time?

Summer Fridays are here. Are you taking advantage of them or are you heading out for drinks with your best gals, going home early for a siesta, or hitting the park for some extra time in the sun? If you're a follower of Peter Shankman, you might have been fired up to do some extra credit work on your business, yourself, or your bucket list after reading his Screw the Beach — Use This Summer to Blow Up Your Life manifesto from earlier this week. I know it certainly lit a flame under my rear end.

It all comes down to this quote he mentions in the post: "Somewhere, right now, someone is training while you are not. When you race him, he will win.”

Ain't that the damn truth.

So I'll ask again — are you taking advantage of your Summer Fridays to rock the socks off of your competitors, your clients, and your customers? Are you sitting diligently at your desk to practice your writing? Brainstorming new content for the next quarter? Writing emails to bloggers and journalists about your new product offering? Or are you sipping on some gin and juice as you watch the latest episode of Master Chef?

Me? I'm getting up early (5:00 a.m. to be exact) to plan new content, new products, and new services for all you small business owners who need help executing your own content strategy for better sales.

Tell me — what are you doing to blow up your life and your career this summer?
