It’s the start of another year. Oh, how time flies!
Why not get yourself ready for a booming year in business? There are a lot of things you can do to plan for success.
Here are 8 Ways Have a Successful and Booming Business in 2019:
Clear Out and Clean Up:
One of the best things I’ve learned to do as I close out one year and begin another is to go through my filing cabinets and in-trays and clean out any paperwork that I no longer need.
I clean up my filing, get all my financial information in order and set my office up in a different way. It’s as if the activity of cleaning out creates new space for my new year.
Getting things in order has me feeling less stressed and able to begin being creative and visualizing what I want my new year to be like, which leads me to my next point.
Set Some Realistic Goals:
Do you set realistic goals? I’ve been in the space of setting goals that aren’t specific enough. They are sort of wishy-washy because I haven’t wanted to commit to a strong detailed goal, in case it doesn’t materialize. What I’ve realized though is that without my goals being either specific or realistic I am sabotaging myself.
So, grab a planner and set yourself some realistic goals. These may be for the whole year or, if that feels overwhelming, then set the goals for the first quarter. Then you can re-evaluate them at the end of those three months and make some changes for the next quarter.
Evaluate What’s Worked and Not Worked This Year:
A booming business is created when you have clarity on what it is that you want to achieve. With that in place, you can then set out to achieve it. Here’s where looking at what’s worked and not worked this past year is valuable.
Don’t make the same mistakes you have this year. Look at what’s working and determine how you can expand on that or even tweak things to make them work even better. When you take note of what hasn’t worked it will help you decide to drop that thing or try something different.
Businesses that boom aren’t afraid to try new things. So be adventurous!
Make Sure You’re Seen:
Visibility in today’s world, with everything so ‘in your face,’ isn’t easy. How can you be seen? Have you considered contributing articles to blogs with reach?
Have you considered doing videos, so people can connect with you? Have you thought about publishing a podcast, so people can hear you and follow you?
There are lots of ways to be seen. Each one will add to your profile and have people think of you when they have a problem that you help them solve.
Have an Abundance Mindset:
There is nothing like being grateful. Grateful for all that you have, right now. With this mindset, you will feel abundant and notice that things come to you as the Universe offers. If you notice that you don’t have an abundance mindset then how can you shift that mindset. I think we underestimate the power of our thinking at times.
Are there any practitioners or like-minded people that you can partner within the new year to either develop some new joint ventures or perhaps enhance your visibility?
Maybe the way to start off your new year with a bang is to be open to being part of something bigger than just you and your business idea.
Get Help If You Need It:
We all struggle at times to do all the things we want to do in our business. What about getting some help? The right help it opens up time for you to focus on new ideas and initiatives or to work on making changes to what you already do to make it even more appealing to your potential clients.
Don’t be afraid to hand off tasks that take up a lot of your time. It will pay off in the long run.
Visualize Your Booming Business:
Have you ever created a Vision Board? They are great for visually creating a picture of what your booming business would look like. What I love about them is they are a constant reminder to me of where I want to be, what I want to create. So, maybe you could create a brand new 2019 Booming Business Visual Board ready to launch into your new year full of energy, excitement, and vision.
