Getting off to a fast start in the New Year


December 27, 2013
Now that the holiday season is over, it's back to work for small business owners. Are you prepared to get off to a fast start in the New Year?

Have you established all of your goals and objectives?

Getting off to a fast start is very important for most small business owners to reach their annual objectives.

So how do you start fast in the New Year?

Hopefully you've spent the past few months putting together your plans for next year.

If not, now is the time to do that!

An overall plan should outline your annual objectives and strategies for achieving them, and also allows you to define what needs to get done now and what can be done later.

Getting off to fast start is all about what can be done now! In other words, what are your goals for January?

Do you need to contact all of your existing customers? Is it more important to schedule meetings with new prospects? Is the time right to announce new products or services you are offering?

Everyone, including you, should have very specific objectives for the first month of the year. And for every objective, there should be a list of tasks and activities to make them happen. The beginning of a new year isn't about planning, it's about executing. It's about getting things done and gaining momentum that will build through the first quarter and set the tone for annual success.

Getting off to a fast start in the New Year is key to having a great year for your small business.
