Sneak Peek: The Summer 2023 Issue of Flackery 🕵️🔍🤫

Are You Ready for Some New Opportunities?

We’re a little over a week away from the summer issue of Flackery, and you know what that means — It’s time for a sneak peek!

The theme for the summer issue is finding new opportunities, and this edition is jam-packed with articles to help you create an advantage and find new opportunities for your business.

With that in mind, let’s jump in with a quick look at some of the articles in this issue.

With that in mind, let’s look at some topics we’re covering in this issue.

Work/Life Balance:

A big part of achieving and sustaining success relies on your ability to stay positive and find a healthy work/life balance.

This is such an important topic for anyone who works on their own

Lisa has a review of Shawn Achor’s book “The Happiness Advantage: How a Positive Brain Fuels Success in Work and Life.”

She also has a fantastic article about Why Taking Breaks is Vital to Productivity.


The summer issue also has a brand new monthly time tracker for tracking your billable hours. — You’re going to love this!

We also have useful tips for how to stay on top of your business finances when you’re not the person who pays the bills or manages the books.

Planning (Because we always have something to say about planning...)

I wrote a piece explaining the difference between strategy and planning, and why it’s important to understand the difference. — This is a must-read if you’re struggling to reach goals.

Customers and New Opportunities

We have a super how-to about how to build strong relationships while you’re mining customers for new ideas and opportunities.


This issue has an incredible video interview with Shannon Hernandez from the Joyful Business Revolution. — She can show you how to learn to love marketing by focusing on your own best marketing personality.

We also have a second marketing article featuring tips on how to make time for marketing.

I think there are 9 or 10 articles in this issue, so this isn’t a complete list, but it’s pretty close.

The bottom line is the summer issue of Flackery has everything you need to help you promote your business, find new opportunities, and stay on top of your money, all while making sure you take time to enjoy the summer.

The summer issue comes out on Thursday, June 1st.
