As we welcome in yet another new year, most of us made promises to ourselves and the braver among us even made those promises out loud in front of witnesses regarding what we hoped to accomplish this year. These “resolutions” as they’re known may be infamous for being broken, but they still serve an important purpose: They give us goals.
It’s important and necessary, especially when you’re a business owner to periodically analyze where you’re at and where you want to be especially if you hope to ever actually get there. I don’t know about you, but I don’t know anyone who has accidentally become successful.
That said, one of my goals is to help you make your business more successful this year than last year. But for me to accomplish this goal, I need to know what you hope to achieve this coming year. I need to know in what areas you need assistance.
Help me help you.
I’ve posed the following questions for you to answer and fax back to me at (330) 670-0874 (or you can e-mail your answers to me at [email protected]). What are your business resolutions for 2006? You have some, right? I’d love to know what your goals are for the coming year and how you plan to go about making them a reality. By sharing them with me, I can then get to work on my goal: helping you to be more successful in 2006.
