I know Christmas and New Year have just gone! You’re probably sorting out all the paper wraps from the gifts while trying to recover and give yourself a bit of “Me-Time” after all the hustle of the last few weeks.
Since your business is dear to you, then you should not leave this matter to the last minute. Take some time to assess if are you prepared for 2017.
Waiting too long to make adjustments and make hasty decisions can be the perfect recipe for failure.
You can prepare your business to have a great 2017. In other words, you have to be proactive instead of being reactive.
I’d like to share with you the step by step process I have learnt to use for my business to prepare myself for 2017. Do it at your rhythm it can take an hour or a day.
You should use it with your team and if you’re on your own – then… that’s your team.
Here are the steps that will prepare your business for a great 2017:
1. Summarise Last Year And Ask Yourself The Following Questions:
What went well in 2016?
What did YOU do well in 2016?
What went wrong in 2016?
What did YOU do wrong in 2016?
2. Do a SWOT Analysis For Your Business
Strengths & Weaknesses are internal aspects and can be in products and services, marketing/advertisement, budgeting, planning,
Risks & Opportunities are external aspects that exist or develop in your industry, the marketplace susceptible to change (economic or social factors), the competition which may be creating new threats or opportunities, new technologies.
3. Prepare Your 2017 Business Goals
Think numbers, of customers, revenue, profit, passive income, budget, etc…
4. Stay Consistent With The Strategies You Put Into Place To Reach These Goals
Strategies should focus on:
Building on your strengths
Overcoming your weaknesses
Making use of the opportunities
5. Be Resourceful And Keep Educating Yourself
There is an incredibly fast growing economy out there, and you should know about it and learn how to leverage it.
The marketplace is constantly evolving, and you need to know the new trends of it.
The way business culture is changing and women can be the ones that would reap the most from this change – don’t you think YOU should be one of the firsts to know how?
