News â€“ Welcome to July. Howâ€™s your summer going? I hope whatever that youâ€™ve been doing, it has been fun. A reminder we start back on our every Thursday schedule in August. Todayâ€™s issue we will be talking some about reviewing your business. Most of our clients run tutor businesses that are related to schools. If you donâ€™t, thatâ€™s fine. We also have clients that teach people how to speak English and even how to do woodworking (and many things in between that). The summer is normally a slow time as students are on vacation from school and test and homework slows down (or stops). Now is a wonderful to take stock of your business and to figure out some goals for the coming year.
We hope you have a wonderful fourth of July full of friends, family and fun.
