Resolutions are not just about signing up to that gym that you will commit to going to for the first few weeks of January. Resolutions should be the observation of what your current year was like and what you need or want to change for the year to come. For entrepreneurs, our resolutions can be a number of ideas that you weren’t able to accomplish, setting a dollar amount goal by the end of the first fiscal year or committing to setting a time away from the business and relax.
Searching through the internet, here are a few resolutions that I think most people can utilize in their new way of life in the New Year.
Set goals – make sure they’re realistic
A very great resolution that we don’t always think rationally about. Goals that are out of our reach may or may not be realistic. Where have you taken your business and where you want it to go should be a well thought process that includes a business plan.
Promote your business – as much as you can
What good is your business if only those in your immediate circle of family and friends know about it? Invest in marketing tools to get your great ideas out to individuals that may also be in line with your goals. If you do not have social media accounts for your business, you are missing a huge market of people.
Delegate – free your time for new ideas
If you’ve had a great fiscal year, then you may want to look into expanding your workforce, so you can work on new ideas. You need to have a person or two in your business you can trust to give important tasks to so you are able to work on bigger ideas and plans to expand your business.
Vacation—not a staycation
Decide where you want to go and book a ticket. If you stay home while on “vacation”, you will do more work than relaxation. Take the reward of being able to book a flight, stay in a nice hotel, order room service. With or without children, taking a moment of time to relax and be stress free creates a healthy work-life balance.
One year is going to be behind us and with another year approaching, create resolutions that make a better you and business. What are your business resolultions?
