First, let’s get rid of 2013 and move on to a New Year! The sooner you get this done, you can move on to 2014.
Prepare year-end tax forms. This includes sales taxes, payroll taxes, 1099’s. Get them done and on their way.
Evaluate your business expenses. Get bids for credit card processing, insurance, phone and internet, etc. Contact emerchant.com for lower credit card processing rates. They are offering a Challenge - $250 if they can’t beat your current rates. Call your internet company and ask for any specials. Contact at least 3 insurance companies for their best rates.
Evaluate your business form. Are you a dba and should be a LLC? Check with a professional accountant or lawyer. You can also contact www.score.org for a local chapter in your area. They provide free local mentoring to small businesses.
Now set your Goals for the New Year!
Write your goals for 2014 and be specific. For example, "I want to increase sales by 10%".
Explain why you want to achieve your goal. "If I increase sales by 10%, I can hire another person and have more time with my family".
Create a list of distraction or problems that may stop you from achieving your goals. Then write solutions. For example, your problem may be that you don’t have enough time to write a blog. Schedule your day with specific times for checking emails, social media, and blog writing. Look at this schedule at the beginning of each day and stick to it!
Use tools such as Trello.com and Hootsuite.com that help with time management.
Be sure to listen this Tuesday at 2:00pm EST as we offer more insight into setting goals and achieving them for 2014.
