Today’s episode is the last episode of the season! We are having six weeks away from the podcast over the Australian summer / Christmas break and so we turn our minds to what we can all be doing at this time of year in our business. Whether it’s taking time off without losing money or momentum, or embracing a summer/holiday theme to your content and products, there is lots you can do to embrace the summer and holidays in your business!

Things we discuss:

  • how to embrace the theme in your marketing and content
  • what you can do to plan for 2017 and plan to have time off
  • admin work that is perfect to do at this time of year and set yourself up for success in 2017!
  • things we are planning on doing over our break
