2020 is officially upon us, and like any other new year, it's time for clean slates and fresh starts. This year also marks the start of a new decade. I'm not sure about anyone else, but as someone who lived through the panic of Y2K, it still surprises me when things like decades or centuries start without too much craziness.
But with the start of the year AND century, it's now a better time than ever to make the most of the fresh start. For some, that means personal goals, resolutions and plans. Maybe you want to exercise more, connect with old friends, finally learn how to cook (looking at you, bf). But if you're a small business owner, the truth of the matter is that the lines between your business and your personal life are likely blurred. Making sure you business succeeds is a very personal goal. And maybe 2020 is the year you want to set some business resolutions.
Similar to the way you do with your personal goals, these resolutions should be realistic and focused. Sure, we all want to make $50 million. But maybe we should just start by increasing our social media followers by about 25%. Maybe you want to get some new headshots, or re-assess your marketing strategy. Maybe you want to get your business involved in more community events.
Take some time in the coming weeks to jot down whatever great things you're hoping to accomplish with your small business in 2020 and the decade that follows. Map out a plan to make those things happen so you can enjoy the moment you get to cross them off. And if there's any way I can help you achieve those goals, give me a call!
