The Menorahs stop burning, no more magically lit Christmas trees in each window, and everybody is back to work. It’s the first week of 2017 and where do you go from here? How do you kick off 2017 on the right foot so that your business will grow and prosper? Here’s Entrepreneur’s “4 Things Every Entrepreneur Needs to Do in the First Week of the New Year” in a nutshell!

  1. 100-Day Plan  –  What are some short-term goals that will help you reach your long-term vision? Start by writing your 100-day plan— obtainable objectives and tasks that you will execute and complete over the next 100 days.
  2. De-clutter – Out with the old, in with the new. Toss out old papers, projects and documents and go paperless and organize yourself. You’ll operate much more efficiently!
  3. Clean House – Reduced productivity, lower employee morale, and additional costs are just a few reasons for cleaning house and letting go of a substandard employee. Start fresh with the right people on your team.
  4. Go Higher – Evaluate your pricing model, review your competitive landscape, and determine if NOW is the best time to bump up your rates, fees, and prices. 

Come back in 2017 with a clear mind, vision, and goals. If you follow these four steps, our team guarantees a focused, exciting new work year full of growth and potential!
