Every business (big or small) should reevaluate their business at the start of the New Year. Just as people think about their resolutions, businesses should consider some as well. Since we work primarily with small businesses, we thought we would put together a list of five New Year’s resolutions for small businesses. Be sure to keep these 5 resolutions in mind as you plan 2018.
#1. Reflect on Mistakes
Before you can move forward with making any changes to your business or business goals, it’s best if you reflect on the mistakes that were made by your business. Whether these mistakes were made by you, employees, or other staff, you really should spend time thinking about what happened and what your role was. This is the difference between a weak and a strong business. A weak business will fail if the employers never think about how they can avoid the mistakes that were previously made. Of course, those who don’t take this step are doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over again. Having made a lot of repeated mistakes ourselves, we know that this first resolution can be difficult but ultimately it is a necessary resolution to begin a better year.
