SUBJECT: Summertime - keeping myself and my TEAM on track!
Summer can be a challenging time for your home based business - especially if you are someone with children who are now home from school. Whether elementary, high school, or college aged having the kids around every day can present a real distraction. Fold in nice weather and the lure of fun outdoor activities and you have a potential recipe for major procrastination when working from home.

“Taking the summer off” is not always a good choice, especially if you consider that our business has a 30-90 day cycle. Look at your calendar and you will see that if you do nothing now, it will impact your fall (harvest time!) in a very negative way.
So, how do you stay motivated and help your team to do the same?
Sometimes all it takes is a new challenge, something that increases your excitement level and gets your juices flowing.
Set a short term goal for yourself, or for yourself and your team. An example might be recruiting or selling to a certain amount within a short period of time. Get creative. Think about having a fun focus, like recruiting people who are out of state or selling a particular number of a specific product; anything that will give your goal a new twist.

Break your goal into bite-sized (daily) increments. In other words, if your goal is to sell $1000 in the next 2 weeks (10 days), then your daily goal is to sell $100. Keep the goal in front of you and reward yourself for your accomplishments.

Working on a specific goal with your team can really makes things fun. Again, break it down. If you have a goal of selling $10,000 in the next 10 days with a team of 10 - each individual must sell $1000 in that period of time or $100 a day. Have them report daily to you and post the results in a daily email that goes out. Don't forget the rewards. It can be something as silly as candy (Smarties - you are so smart to have achieved today's daily goal)or something bigger like a Starbucks or gasoline gift card. Let people brag on their successes and post them to everyone via facebook. Then, when you achieve your goal be sure to celebrate as a team.

The whole idea is to use your imagination and creativity to build momentum and team work in your organization.
