Another year has flown by and a new year is right around the corner! Now is the perfect time to strategize about projects that will boost your business prosperity.
Below are five ideas to get you thinking about new beginnings for your business in 2018.
Learn new technology.
Every year, tens of thousands of new online software applications are invented that will save us time and money. Learning at least one new app will keep us sharp and hopefully improve our business.
Or you might have a need for apps in marketing and sales, such as social media, customer relationship managers, email list management, or web applications.
If you are not sure where to look, ask your friends what has saved them the most time. Also, feel free to reach out to us to discuss apps that may support your accounting needs.
Upgrade your accounting system.
If your accounting system is not updated to the current version, it may be time to perform the upgrade. Check with us for advice on the current version and any new features that you can benefit from.
Develop your 2018 prosperity plan.
The word “budget” has somewhat of a negative connotation, but a prosperity plan sounds like fun. They are the same, of course, and the idea is to determine what goals you want to reach so that you have a clear path to making your desired prosperity a reality.
Create a theme or mantra.
Want to stay more focused in 2018? A theme or mantra can remind you to stay on track with a particular project or goal. Brainstorm a phrase that will guide you in 2018. Here are some examples:
- Customer service excellence
- More me-time
- Enthusiastic, engaged employees
- Expanding digital presence
- Going green
- A prosperous new product line
Delegate something that is not getting done.
One way to feel amazingly rejuvenated and re-energized about your business is to give someone an item that has been on your to-do list for far too long. It amazingly gets done right before your eyes.
