It's when you're feeling bored, unmotivated, maybe even a little anxious about your business and if you're feeling it right now, please know I am right there with you.  I have to admit, even though it's not a new phenomenon for me, I was blindsided when June hit.

Show Notes

A summer slump is a very uncomfortable place to be.

It’s when you’re feeling bored, unmotivated, maybe even a little anxious about your business and if you’re feeling it right now, please know I am right there with you.

I have to admit, even though it’s not a new phenomenon for me, I was blindsided when June hit. Suddenly, I felt utterly apathetic about all the operational, non-client-facing pieces of my business. I just didn't want to do it.

Today I’m sharing a few things that I've done to help pull myself out and how you can support yourselves and your clients through the summer slump. Enjoy the episode!

TRANSCRIPT

 

Well, hello, my friend. Welcome to the Coach with Clarity Podcast. My name is Lee Chaix McDonough, I'm your host. And today we are going to tackle a topic that I am intimately familiar with, because I am experiencing it right now. And based on what I've heard from my clients, my students and my members, there is a high likelihood that you are experiencing it, too. That's right. Today, we are talking about what to do when you're experiencing a summer slump. You probably know what I'm talking about when I say “summer slump.” It is when you feel bored, unmotivated, even a little anxious about your business, and it's a very uncomfortable place to be. Now, if you are there right now, please know I am right there with you. And that's why I wanted to record this podcast episode, because I think I need it maybe as much if not more than you do. And if you are fortunate enough not to be experiencing a summer slump right now, then maybe still take a listen, because you may find that your clients are. And there may be some words of wisdom within today's episode that may help you support your clients as they go through their summer slump as well.
