  • For families, June is a busy time with graduation parties, little league championships and music recitals. And we all know that right around the corner is summer vacation - lazy days for kids but often stressful for working parents. So if you haven't nailed down your plans yet, here are some ideas that can help with your work/life balance:

    Lastly if the unit is defective – it does you or your vehicle cooling system and engine no good what so ever. Defective thermostats are not repairable and on top of that are inexpensive to replace. Replace the unit with a proper new replacement.

    To prevent dehydration, drink plenty of water. If it is extremely hot outside, you can run the risk of heat exhaustion if you don't keep your body hydrated. Be careful not to drink too many alcoholic or caffeinated beverages, they may increase dehydration.

    Consider a staycation: Check out local websites for coupons and other discounts.

    Parents no doubt realize that it is important to educate their children. When school lets out for the summer, education is often the farthest thing from your childs mind. While a break from school is needed, children are still encouraged to continue their education during the summer. Education should always be a part of summer vacations. It should be interesting and fun for your child, and not too hard. After all, your children do deserve a break.

    The purpose of capturing cool business and marketing ideas is to shift your thinking away from the more limiting idea of "job" to the more option-expanding concept of "livelihood." But that's not all. Even if you have no interest in starting your own soft-serve ice cream shop/kids bookstore (with a fun hand-washing area dividing the two, of course), a summer camp for Star Wars fans, or an antique stove repair business, just by paying attention to the wonderfully vast number of ways there are to make a living without a j-o-b can help fuel your own creative thinking.

    1. Let things run on auto-pilot. There are so many tools these days to automate your marketing, there’s no reason to stop, even while you’re on vacation. Schedule a couple of blog posts in advance (this is a great time to use that guest post you’ve been hanging on to) and use tools to automate your social media:
