.....aaaaannnnd just like that, we're half way through 2018. 

Remember you, six months ago? When you had just fought your way through 2017 and had that fresh sheet of 2018 awaiting you? When you set all those goals, when you dreamed SO BIG?

Don't forget about that version of you. That "you" is still hanging around, even if that "you" is a little worse for wear. Even if those goals you set seemed to have stayed just out of reach over these past six months. Even if the fresh sheet that was 2018 is now smudged, tear-stained, and ragged at the edges. 

Fresh starts can show up any time of year. This month, we invite you to do a little inventory on the first half of 2018. 

  • What worked?
  • What didn't work?
  • What needed a quick pivot?
  • What were your greatest victories - the ones you will build upon? 
  • How does the past six months change your next six months? 

Planning like a boss means consistent, regular review. Look back on where you've been - you have, indeed, come a long way. Without reflection, you may lose the opportunity to celebrate your wins, and - possibly more importantly - learn from every outcome you experience. 

If your reflection leads you to further delegation, we've got just the challenge for you. If rewarding your team (and yourself) is part of the next six months, then you may want to take a look at HCSAs in this excerpt from the Entrepreneur's Survival Guide by Darcy O'Shea at Benefits by Design

Are new technologies in your future? Here's a way to figure out what systems you might actually need.

Last - and never least - the most popular newsletter item every month: Have you met... Jessica?  Jessica is a painfully organized slayer, and we know you'll love her as much as we do.

Keep an eye on our social media feeds over the next week or two as the third annual Admin Slayer Retreat was on June 23rd - we'll be sharing tidbits and photos from what was a fun, sunny, relaxing event!
