Small Business Clean Up for the New Year

I really enjoy the regular newsletter I receive from Donna Gunter, the Internet Marketing Automation Coach. Last week she had a link to a blog post she wrote entitled

Business Planning: Your 17-Point New Year's Business Inventory and Cleanup

It's a brilliant reminder of many of the important, yet simple things, we can do as business owners at the start of the year to make our lives easier for ourselves.

By this time of year the glow of all those new years resolutions starts to wear off. As a business coach I continue to be an advocate that it is never too late to start some new habits. I hope that you will take a look at Donna's post and take some action today.

As Donna says in her 17th point:
Clean it up. Now it’s time for serious evaluation and to make some difficult choices. Remember, these will be some of the most important business decisions you'll make to help you refocus for a highly productive and profitable business. There are just two rules to follow here:
  • If it doesn't fit in with your chosen target market and business plan – GET RID OF IT!
  • If you still decide to hang on to it anyway, but it weighs on you in any way – GET RID OF IT!

What things do you need, and want to, get rid of this year?

Have a terrific week,
