Wow – hard to believe Christmas is almost here and another year is near an end. I hope you had a good year – both business-wise and personally.
Professionally, this is the time of year when I spend some time to review all that worked, what needs improving using several different QuickBooks reports that help me look at my business from several different perspectives.
This is also the time of year when I start planning for next year. An interesting comment I once heard was that if you plan to increase business by 5, 10%, then you will probably continue doing what you’ve been doing. For some, that’s fine. But the suggestion was to plan a bigger increase in business, like doubling your sales, which means that in order to attain that higher goal, you will need to do something different – add another product/service, staffing, joint ventures with other companies, to suggest a few. But it gets the wheels turning and can add excitement in business planning. So what will you do differently next year?
And, like many of you, I will enjoy spending time with family and friends over the holiday season. My wish for you is that you have a very safe and Happy Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
