Tuesday brings our new business matters feature, tips, hints and advice from some of the top folk in the wedding business, we have some great experts gracing the pages of the blog over the coming months to fill you with inspiration for your business.
The start of a new year brings the opportunity to wipe the slate clean and make some new resolutions and plans for the exciting year ahead. While a lot of these resolutions are traditionally personal, why not make it an opportunity to set some business goals? It is a great time to take some time out of the everyday routine and really think about the direction that you want your business to go in. Take some time, a big piece of paper and dream big. I work out my best goals when I have time, paper and wine!
Once you have got your dreams written down it is time to take some action, start to break those business goals down into small steps, manageable chunks, little goals that you can tackle one by one. It is by taking these small steps that you can make your business better, more effective and you can achieve your goals. It doesn’t need to be a big and daunting dream (although it might be!), just break it down into manageable chunks. Goal setting is so important in business, it can be the difference between achieving your dreams and coasting along. Once you’ve set the goals or resolutions take Alain de Botton’s advice and declare them in public to create momentum and energy.
I love to create big, sparkly goals and I review them often. Don’t let your goal be one that you stick to for a couple of months and let fall off the radar, otherwise we’ll find ourselves welcoming in 2015 and wondering what we’ve achieved over the last 12 months.
So….what will 2014 bring your wedding business?
