In my job, our busy season is July through November, and we also get big spikes in the last couple of weeks of June and the last couple of weeks of September, since that's when a lot of organizations' fiscal years end, and they want to spend their money. July, August, and September are our busiest months if you exclude one anomalous February a couple of years ago that screwed up our revenue statistics.

January is traditionally our slowest month, along with December, which for some reason doesn't give us the fiscal year-end boost that June and September do.

Being that I'm a teacher it's pretty busy from the end of August till the start of June. Right now you could say it's not a very busy time of year for me.

i'm usually busy in the morning, then in the afternoon. that would probably last for 5-6 days.
then after 4 sets of 5-6 days that works to be about a month. lately, after round about 12 of them months, i've put in a year.
then it's time to start again.

July 1 through June 30th

Guessing from your "fiscal" answer, you do something maybe stock related? Or something that would involve stuff you see on CNBC... :)

Good guess, but no. The dates are fiscal related.

I'm looking forward to a new position where my busy dates are June 30 to July 1

When Circuit Boards are being produced domestically we are busy. It has been real strong since last September but our normal seasonal trends went out the window about 6 years ago.

June-getting the July publication together early for the printer because we have numerous firework ads and have to mail earlier than normal plus now that I'm in fireworks we have to change our warehouse from direct mail distribution to fireworks outlet.

November-working on the Christmas edition of our publication,everyone wants to advertise then.

December-crazy month as about 80% of my annual agreements end and I get to add renewals to my already hectic schedule.
