Pumpkin spice, cozy sweaters, a renewed sense of focus to end the year. 

September is quickly approaching — and there are a lot of things to look forward to (more on that later). 

September is special to me. I launched Ascent StoryCraft on September 22, 2020, which so happens to be Business Women’s Day! I just love the fall. And even though that means saying goodbye to local Long Island sweet corn, it does mean saying hello again to pumpkin season. 

Until then, you can take inspiration right from my content calendar. I use these post ideas for Instagram, but they can work great for blogs, videos, Facebook posts, Pinterest pins, and anywhere else you’d like to find your audience online. 

See below to steal my September content ideas and social media post prompts for service-based businesses. 

P.S. I’d love to see how you’re putting these ideas into action. Feel free to tag or share your posts with me so I can be your fangirl.
