Dear PPA Member,
Growing up, what was your favorite thing about school? Maybe it was the field trips you got to take (I could give you a tour of the Boston Museum of Science--I swear my school took us there every year!) or learning about your favorite subject (foreign languages always fascinated me).
I loved school, but I must admit that I also loved that stretch of time called "summer break" when I didn't have to go to school. No homework, no waking up early, and time to do whatever I wanted. (Or what my parents wanted, which was to send me to summer camp...which I think was their "summer break.")
Eventually, we all grow up and move from school towards our careers. While most careers don't usually feature 3-month summer breaks, some of you may encounter times of the year when business slows down. This week's Vital Signs is about that time of the year and how you can make the most of it. Just because you don't have clients booked every day doesn't mean you have to sit around and do nothing. You can still be productive and, I promise, no camp songs or mosquitoes will be involved.
