Get Your Business in Order for the New Year
Let’s start the New Year with a clean slate for your business. Clean out the clutter and streamline your process so you can function effectively. Organization in any business can help you improve your time and functionality so you can generate a positive outcome for your efforts. I will share with you my process of getting my business in order.
Organize your workspace: The place where you work the most needs to be organized. Have filing systems and color-coordinated or labeled folders for different tasks, clean up old files and get rid of old deals, don’t let paperwork pile up on your desk, and make it easy to find what you need, when you need it.
Update your technology: You don’t need the latest or greatest computers, laptops, iPads, smart phones, etc., you just need ones that have the features you use. Make sure you know how to use the features on your gadgets. If you need help, ask someone who is more knowledgeable in technology than yourself.
Marketing budget: Marketing is a must for your business. Take some time to figure out your marketing plan for finding deals or buyers. Also set a budget that is workable for you. Don’t over extend yourself if you cannot afford to market. Instead, find cheaper ways of getting your message out there.
Set your goals: Let’s get you focused with some S.M.A.R.T goals. Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Trackable goals. This method of goal setting will allow you to be flexible with your success but also keep you on track and accountable. Map out your business so you know where you want it to go and how you’re going to get yourself there.
Constant organization will keep you moving efficiently throughout the year. Now is a good time to really get started on the right track. There are many ways you can get organized. Choose your method of choice and get to it.
