The beginning of a new year is perfect time to reflect on yourself and your personal goals and to set hopes and aspirations for what you’d like to accomplish over the course of the next 12 months. But your new year’s resolutions don’t just have to be to lose weight or start cleaning more often—they can also help you grow or maintain your small business. If you are a business owner or independent contractor, consider instating one or more of these new year’s resolutions as we enter 2019.
- Document all expenses. A new tool here, a few gallons of paint there—business expenses can add up quickly and receipts can get lost in the shuffle if you aren’t carefully documenting your expenses. Investing in a spreadsheet software program like Excel and keeping on-top of your expenses will help improve your budgeting skills and will act as an invaluable resource when tax season rolls around.
- Put yourself out there in the community. Word of mouth advertising has long been one of the most effective methods of bringing in new customers and clientele! In the new year, try to get your name out there in the community and connect with other business owners. You can start by paying a holiday visit or sending an email to local business owners you’d like to get to know—you may be surprised just how easy it is to make a connection amongst professionals!
- Recycle more efficiently. Recycling isn’t just good for the environment—it can also be great for your business’ bottom line. Sgt.
