The New Year always has a lot of energy, but it usually wears off quickly. So, let's keep the ball rolling. We'll look at personal resolutions and goals that you want to achieve. But what about your company's New Year's resolutions/goals? Are you providing your business with the care and attention it requires to thrive?
You will receive out of business, as with anything else in life, what you put into it. When you show your business that you care, it will reciprocate. Here are eight suggestions for showing your small business some much-needed love in 2020...and for many years to come!
1. Make Connections:
As a business owner, you must understand that cultivating the appropriate relationships is crucial to your company's success. You never know what a chance encounter could lead to for your business. Make new relationships by speaking with one new person each day and remembering to hand out your business card!
2. Have a daily to-do list:
Having a daily plan of action is essential to nurturing your business. What's on your to-do list, and how do you prepare yourself for the day? Keeping a physical list with items you can readily check off will help you stay on top of your duties and progress toward your long-term goals.
3. Think bigger picture:
In ten years, where do you want to be? When things go wrong in the short term, having a firm long-term goal might help decrease everyday anxiety. Remember that solving short-term challenges will assist you in piecing together the larger picture.
4. Try new initiatives:
Experiment with new concepts that you're not sure will work. Don't be scared to make mistakes, whether it's with a new marketing investment or a sales approach. Even if it's a far shot, go for it! Failing is a part of learning, and you won't learn unless you try. All successful people take risks...be brave!
5. Set short-term targets:
You may have a vision of being a $1 million firm in the future, but what are the measures you can take now to get there? What strategy will you use to reach your first million? How will you deal with day-to-day challenges or present staff issues? I recommend keeping a notebook to keep track of your daily, weekly, and monthly goals in order to stay on track with your long-term goals.
6. Find a mentor:
Keep in mind that you are not required to do this on your own. Find a mentor or coach who has walked in your footsteps and can offer you advice and direction. What other business leaders do you admire? If you don't know anyone, contact your local small business bureau; they almost usually have volunteer mentors who can help.
