February is 90 days long.
Isn’t it? It feels like it is!
February 3rd is the halfway point through winter and it feels like the second half is so much longer than the first half!
Cold weather and the panic at work to keep up with your 2022 strategy makes it the hardest month to get through. Here at Abask, we’ve figured out one way to quell the rising nausea and make it through February. It’s a little thing we like to call “A list.”
Isn’t that what everyone calls it?
Here is the list of things that help us make it through February.
Rebecca: I have doubled down on LinkedIn in the last few weeks. Between my own profile, the pages we manage for client businesses, and the executive profiles we manage for others, I’m posting to LinkedIn several times a day. I love the camaraderie and positivity that I find there. It’s empowering and worthwhile. I come away feeling better about myself (no more imposter syndrome) AND I have “met” so many potential clients for Abask and for our clients.

Elisa: We’ve been building simple referral programs for a few different clients throughout Q4 2021 and into January. Our referral programs have been multi-faceted because we gather feedback from clients, then ask for the referral, so we’ve built a customer journey, which is always fun (for us, at least!) but learning about downfalls, and then offering our clients solutions is the bomb!
We do bingo nights for one client, yoga mornings with another, trivia days for a third client, and happy hour amongst ourselves. It’s all part of the Employee Value Proposition campaign that we kicked off in 2021. Learn more about those here: https://abaskmarketing.com/evp
Elisa: Virtual hangouts are good, but getting up and going out of the house makes the day a little brighter, even if it’s grey and rainy! It gets my blood pumping, lifts my spirits, and somehow just helps me feel more energized.
Rebecca: in that same vein, I feel better if I wake up and get to the gym first thing. Trust me, I have no desire to go, but when I get there, my head clears and after, I feel like I completed one thing, no matter how the rest of the day turns out!
Work/ Life Balance
Rebecca: I couldn’t get through my day without the love and support of my family. They are the reason I do everything else, and I know I’m creating a legacy by working hard for them to see.
Jennie: I am an early riser, so the flexibility of a job that allows me to work for a set amount of hours, regardless of when I use them, helps me wind down and spend time with my family. That’s where I get recharged.
What about you? What gets you through the longer months?
