What targets will you set yourself this year?

The start of a new year is the perfect opportunity to make a change to your life and start something new.  Surveys show that some of the most popular New Year resolutions will be to eat healthier, exercise more, save money or make a career change.

Most people will make their resolutions for a personal reason, but are there targets that you can set that will help your business? Take a look at some resolutions that you can use that will help your business in 2019. To get to know us a bit better, we have asked our team what resolutions they have set themselves this year. 

Why do we have New Year resolutions

New Year resolutions can be traced back over 3000 years to the Babylonian empire, but more recently to the Romans, who made promises at the start of the New Year to the Roman God Janus. The month of January was named after Janus, who was the god of beginnings and transitions, and the tradition of New Year promises continues to this day.

Get social

Social media has millions of users every day, so even reaching a small percentage of people could mean an increase in customers. Most social networks are free to set up and run so use this opportunity to make this new start.

Learn more

Keep on top of trends and new information means that you can offer the most up to date and relevant service to your customers. Look for free courses using job websites, such as Reed, so that you can keep learning.

Improve your social life

Do you need to become more organised or more confident? These attributes will benefit your business as you develop these skills day to day. Having these skills in your personal life will translate into your professional life, and allow you to be more efficient in your work.

Grow your team

No one can do everything on their own, and as your business grows, you may need more help to keep things running. Investing in people is investing in your business, and with many people using New Year as a chance for a new start in a new job, why not take this opportunity to seek some help.
