What are you doing to stabilize and improve your business in 2022? Starting a new year brings the possibility of growth and new tactics to implement with a fresh slate. After two years of chaotic markets, it is time that we learn to stabilize and plan for growth in a new normal. Following simple steps and implementing tactical systems will help ensure that 2022 is your best year yet!
Step One: Budget for Success
Do you budget each month? Most Americans don’t. However, we know that when you create a monthly budget you are more likely to adhere to your financial goals. Encourage your team to also budget monthly and keep them accountable for their lifestyle as well.
Step Two: Time Block Your Schedule
Make sure that each hour of your workday is filled with productive activities to increase the well-being of your business. Limit the amount of time you leave for emails and social media. Those platforms can suck you into hours of wasted time. When you get home, be present. No work is allowed. Your family should “get the best of you, not the rest of you.”
Step Three: Surround Yourself With People Who Elevate You
Take a moment and think about who you see as successful and accomplished. What does that person look like? Find people that mirror that image and encourage you to do your best (even if it isn’t the easy way). Being around people that want your success, will help elevate your business but also will keep you accountable for your actions.
Step Four: Have a Plan
Having a plan is the key to getting things done. Too often we get overwhelmed with the: Who do we call? What do I say? It doesn’t have to be that complicated. Just having a daily call list on your desk each morning will provide a simple plan for you to follow through on. Try our Daily Theme Days if you are still struggling with who to call.
Step Five: Invest in Your Team
Putting time into those who put time into making your business function seems like simple logic. However, too many times we forget about those who support us. Take the step to invest extra time and money into those people who make your business a success. Create an incentive program for performance, ask genuine questions about your employees, and care when they respond, all are easy steps to go the extra mile for the people that take care of you. Creating this culture will ensure that your team will remain your biggest supporters (because you could not do it without them)! Rule of thumb: the care and attention that you give to your team, is the extra same care and attention that they will give to your clients.
