Start with how many ‘work’ days you actually have left this year. Sept 7th to December 31st = 151 ‘actual’ days.
151 Actual Days minus the following assumptions:
42 weekend days (if you work half the weekend, use 21)
2 Halloween days (maybe more with kids and events)
7 Thanksgiving days
10 Christmas / New Year’s
5 sick days
5 miscellaneous days
10 bad weather / bad attitude / not working
= About 70 work days before December 31st.
Homework? Figure out how many days YOU will be working the rest of this year. Put a big green dollar $ign on those days and an X on the days you won’t be working and / or days you know no one in your market will be working, like Thanksgiving and Christmas weeks. Be realistic so you can PLAN for your success!
