JANUARY 2016 - New Year resolutions for business owners - time to end a chapter!

In my experience some of the most frustrating and annoying things about running a business are the issues or events which never seem to go away. The things that wake you up and annoy you in the middle of the night; because you got the wrong result; you “lost” or loose ends weren’t tied up completely. Often you replay the same scenario over and over in your head and like “Groundhog Day” the end result remains the same!

At this time of the year the focus is on looking forward and resolving to be better and make changes both personally and in business. However often the biggest barrier to progress is not accepting that in business as well as in life “you win some and you lose some.”

I think a key driver in building a successful business is knowing when to close a chapter however frustrating or hurtful the issue, to allow you to focus fully on the next chapter of your book.
