Holding On To Summer
Letter from our Editor-in-Chief, Serena Watson -- September 2, 2014
Summertime can be the most productive time of year for some. With the sun shining and your social life in full swing, summer can fly right by. Before you know it, it’s the holiday season. I know for me summer is a time to see family and friends and spend as much time outdoors as possible.
Before we say goodbye to summer and all its energizing sunlight, maybe we should make the best of the time we have left. Are there some things on your to-do list you didn’t get done? Are there some things on your fun list you still haven’t tried? Here are a few ideas to help squeeze a bit more fun and productivity out of the summer season:
Attend an event: Be it a networking mixer or a party to remember get out there and mingle! Need some ideas? The good folks over at 1st Class Fashion are hosting an event this Thursday! Check it out!
Reach out to a Made Woman you admire: Maybe it’s a potential mentor or maybe it’s a colleague you’ve seen grinding lately. Connect with them. Drop them a note. Thank them for all they do, or just send some encouragement. It’s all about sisterhood!
Find an accountability partner: As the summer sun sets and we move into the cooler fall months and the holidays, it can be easy to lose track of your professional goals. Find an accountability partner who will hold you to the goals you set. Maybe it’s a life coach or just a girlfriend but if you both stick to it, you’ll find yourself getting things done all year long.
