There is certainly a chill in the air! At least a preview of the coming Fall, which means it is time to settle down and get back to work. Genealogists love the fall. It signals that it is ok to stay indoors and work or to venture out on that research trip they have been pondering for months now. As a professional it means that your clients will be getting interested in their genealogy again and will be looking for your assistance.

Are you ready? Do you have a plan in place, an updated calendar ready to be put into use, or an urge to complete any outstanding projects? Even though it is only mid August, now is the time to review and prepare. You don’t have to drop everything, just use this time to think about it all.

Remember you are the boss, the person in charge, the person that is responsible for all the little and big details. What can you do now that will help you manage your business? I have found that the “back to school” concept still applies to us all, must be the habit that was instilled in us as children. Fresh start, new books, sharp pencils (well maybe new apps for the phone, software for the computer in todays world), and the excitement of what is to come.
