Sorry We're Closed

Sorry we're closed.  It's what you see as you walk the streets of Martha's Vineyard.  It's what you'll hear if you call up one of your favorite restaurants for dinner reservations for a table for two. As a consumer and year-round Island resident in January, seeing these words when you walk up to the door can be a real drag.  Living in a seasonal resort community through four seasons can take some getting used to if you're new to the area.  But even those of us who grew up in this environment have to get creative with local resources, plan travel excursions and adjust family life to avoid seasonal boredom and ending up like Jack with "The Shining" syndrome.

If you live in a resort community, how do you mix things up in the off season so that you aren't going through in-season withdrawals?  Or do you look forward to the quiet and tranquility and re-connecting with family and friends when things are less busy?

What keeps you busy during the off-season?  Are you working on your business?  Making travel plans?  Conquering personal goals?  Whatever you're doing, don't end up like Jack.

Help Wanted on Martha's Vineyard (#HelpWantedMV)

We're heading into February and employers are already looking to hire their seasonal help.  Everyday I work with small business owners and start ups to create long term plans to be successful and make money doing something that they love doing.  In an additional effort to support the small business community and connect them with potential employees, I want you to use the hashtag #HelpwantedMV.  If you are an employer or someone looking for a job, hashtag your posts to connect on your social media channels.

Additional note for potential employees!  Make sure your social media accounts are a good reflection of who you are.  You'd think this was a no-brainer since I taught my 15 year old son about social media presence and how it may impact your future years ago....but so many adults still don't get it! An employer is going to Google you before hiring you anyway, so go ahead and clean up those social media accounts now, okay?
