July starts the second half of the year, and it’s the seventh month of the year. And you history buffs probably know that it’s the seventh month on both the Julian and Gregorian Calendars. Plus, it’s the fourth (of seven) month to have 31 days.
Did you know July is named for Julius Caesar? You remember him, right? He was that famous Roman general who said “Veni, vidi, vici.” Or, for you English speaking readers, “I came, I saw, I conquered.”
Well, apparently July was the month little Julio (aka Julius) was born. So, the Roman Senate voted to declare the seventh month, which was called Quintilis, July in his honor. Actually I’m kinda glad they did that. Because can you imagine calling America’s Independence Day the Fourth of Quintilis? Yikes.
The second half of the year, here in the Northern Hemisphere, starts out HOT.
Of course, for you down under neighbors, July is one of your coldest times. And for those of you who celebrate birthdays in July, your birthstone is the ruby. And your birth flower is either the larkspur or water lily. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone bought you a ruby and a bouquet of larkspurs and water lilies?
In case it matters at all to you, anyone born before July 22 is the Zodiac sign of Cancer. And anyone born on July 23 and after is a Leo.
Oh yeah, one more thing that happens in July. On the seventh, to be exact. And that’s my monthly UNversity class. This month I’m sharing a how-to class on the topic of hiring the right person for your business. UNversity video classes are on the first Thursday of each month. This month, that’s the 7th.
But if you haven’t already signed up for the class, you missed it. Because the deadline to sign up for classes is always at midnight of the last day of the preceding month. And that was yesterday. June 30.
That’s the bad news for anyone who didn’t meet the deadline. Good news is, you can sign up anytime in July and be Ready for the class on the first Thursday in August. And UNversity subscribers can email me with their questions about setting up their business System. And I answer them personally.
So, when you’re Ready to Veni, vidi, vici, sign up.
There’s a world to conquer.
