It hasn’t happened yet, but you can sense it’s coming – the transformation of the lush green shades of summer to the brilliant hues of autumn. As symbolic as January 1st is to new beginnings, Labor Day is to transformation. The conversion of the air temperature, environmental colors and activities enter a new phase; and the stores exchange bathing suits for cardigan sweaters, Halloween decorations and holiday ornaments. Many times it happens much too quickly for our liking. But change comes like it or not.

Whether you thrive personally and corporately in the Summer or do better in the last months of the year, now is a reflective time to consider personal and corporate transformation. Like most women entrepreneurs you have survived, and hopefully flourished, during the first seven months of the year, but now is time to think about what you can do, and need to do better, to be more successful for the next four months.

How can you transform your steady business into a cutting edge company? What will it take to increase your sales and motivate you every day to do so? What new strategies will you use to convert your current clients into promotional messengers? How will you invest more time and money into your business to make the big changes you’ve been waiting for?

In her latest magazine issue, Oprah talks about transformation and says, “It is our job to do daily cleanups – in our work, our family, our relationships, our finances, our health, and well-being. Ignoring problems is easier for sure, but if we take even tiny steps to address them, those steps eventually become giant leaps on the journey to transformation.”

Today’s blog post  is to inspire you to think about the transformation you’d like to make in your business the rest of this year. Take the time you need before Labor Day arrives to write down three big goals and the tiny steps you need to begin taking to accomplish them. Do you need more education, finances, or staff support? Do you need guidance, advice or more inspiration to get you there?

As sure as the leaves will slowly turn from green to yellow and the air from balmy to cool, so can your business transform into a vibrant entity with new color, air and life to sustain and grow it in the near future.
