Time to be out on vacations

Seth says…

In the US, the next two weeks are traditionally the slowest of the year. Plenty of vacations, half-day Fridays, casual Mondays, martini Tuesdays… you get the idea.

That’s my view too. I always wondered what was the slowest months of the year when it comes to evaluating or budgeting sales …. I now think it’s definitely August. We are always afraid to see slow downs on June or July, but August has proved to be the slowest in the last years. It’s not all negative, support calls and tickets are also down. It’s time to optimize the work processes and prepare for the coming weeks !

Ah! You guys are lucky! Strangely enough, August seems to be the most crazy month for us this year…

Back to school? Shitty summer? Hard to tell. The fact is, I haven’t seen this many PCs to fix in such a short time in a while (maybe back in 2000!).

I’ve hardly had a few hours of spare time for the past 3 weeks.

Well, have a beer on me!

Probably depends of the industry … Industry sensible to back to school weeks, tourisms or vacations would be doing well :-)
