Happy New Year, everyone For most of us, 2021 couldn’t come soon enough. The beginning of a new year is traditionally a time when people decide to make changes for the better. It’s also a good time to take a look at your business. Is your goal to bounce back from pandemic setbacks, or maybe to give yourself more time for yourself? Remember, VersaTel Solutions has many services that can make running your business smoother. Let us take tasks like bookkeeping and onboarding employees off your plate so you can concentrate on growing your company. For other ideas on how to improve your business outlook in 2021. The personal finance website The Balance has smart suggestions for New Year’s resolutions. We’re sharing the five that we think are the most important to share with you here.
Learn Something New – What you choose to learn may be directly related or completely unrelated to your business. Learning something new will add to your skills and add a new dimension of interest to your life—another important part of achieving a healthy work-life balance and increasing your business success. Business consultants, trainers, and business coaches can help set you on a path to adopting new skills. Depending on how you choose to learn, you may meet new and interesting people, who may become customers, colleagues, or friends.
Join a New Business Organization or Networking Group – There’s nothing like talking to other business people for sparking new ideas, refining old ones, and making contacts. Whether it’s a group specifically designed for networking or an organization dedicated to a particular type of business, in person or over the internet, making the effort to be a part of a group will revitalize you and your business.
Put Time for Yourself on Your Calendar – All work and no play is a recipe for mental and physical disaster. So if you have trouble freeing up time to do the things you enjoy, write time regularly into your schedule to “meet with yourself” and stick to that commitment. If you won’t invest in yourself, who will?
Set Realistic Goals – Goal setting is a valuable habit—if the goals lead to success rather than distress. Resolve that the goals you set will be achievable, not so far out of reach they only lead to frustration.
Learn to Delegate and Do More of It – There are so many things to do when you’re running a small business, it’s easy to delude ourselves that we need to do all of them. Then we wonder why we’re so tired and frazzled and have no time to do anything else. Let someone else do some of the tasks for a change. Delegation is the key to a healthy work-life balance.
