Happy New Year Everyone!
As today marks the first day of the New Year, it brings a great opportunity for business owners to take time out of their busy schedules to come up with a new and improve New Year’s Resolution. We all think about ways to improve our personal lives, but how about our businesses?
Well there is no time like the present. Now is your chance to sit down and prepare a list of things you wish to improve on within your business. On this week’s episode of A Drink With “The Hurricane,” I will give you 3 things to focus on to make 2017 the best year yet!
If you are looking for effective ways to change your business for the better, then you’ll be sure to follow these 3 steps:
- Have a Plan
- As a business owner it is important to reflect on 2016’s data and see where your business can improve.
Is it in your:
- Weekly Billable hours?
- Execute the plan
- Once you have a goal in mind, it is important to come up with ways to reach it. As business owner, we want what’s best for our business, but sometimes it is hard come to come up with a plan and take action. Don’t worry that is were step 3 comes into play.
- Training is a crucial component when you are talking about the growth of your business. Training provides a great opportunity to expand both your knowledge and employee performance. As a business owner, I invest in training for my staff AND I. Training my employees promotes job satisfaction, lowers job retention, and improves the overall quality of my business.
- As a business owner I invest in myself, because I know it will help the whole team. We have a coach and have also joined a Master Mind group. I believe training is the key to my success as a business owner. You are as limited as your knowledge, so I always try to find new ways to improve my business and myself by attending seminars.
If you are interested in training, register for our Referral Masters Boot Camp, February 8-10th, in Houston Texas. Steve “The Hurricane” has sold out Boot Camps nationwide and has transformed the lives of business owners across the nation. If you are serious about establishing a solid foundation for you and your business, this is not the event you want to miss! I look forward to meeting you in Houston, where our team will teach you how to Blow Away The Competition!
