We came up with a list of practical New Year’s resolutions for small businesses to follow in order to support bottom line growth. While no New Year’s resolutions are one-size-fits-all, we think our list is comprehensive enough for real world application in a variety of industries.
Adapt Accordingly: The first of our New Year’s resolutions is to pledge that your business will take action when detecting any structural or service-oriented deficiencies. Internal problems can linger like a bad spell. Responding early will allow your company to function better.
Hire Wisely: Bad hires are incredibly wasteful for company resources. Lengthy training sessions and prolonged payment of the newly-hired can set small businesses backwards. Taking the time to vet potential hires and understand their career path will save precious time and money.
Plan Ahead: Anticipate upcoming holidays, national sales and community happenings so that your business has ample time to wow your customers. Success is often the intersection between preparation and hard work. Your company’s success should be no exception.
Work Smarter: Concentrate your day on tackling the day’s problems and then some. Don’t let the hours in the day dictate your day’s work or the work of your employees. Being open to giving time off for productivity can go a long way for employee happiness.
Spend Less: Identify ways your company can spend less each month and get leaner. There is always a solution for curbing excess consumption. Reassessing your company’s monthly budget every quarter can loosen up the load and get your company growing faster.
