Happy New Year! January is the month of new beginnings and a perfect time to construct projects that will boost prosperity. Here are 5 ideas to get you thinking about new beginnings for your business in 2019.
- Learn new technology.
Every year, tens of thousands of new online software applications are invented to save time and money. Learning at least one new app will keep you sharp and improve your business. There are many to choose from! One way to narrow it down is to find an app that will help you do your job more effectively.
Look for an app that supports your administrative work, such as video conferencing, scheduling, cloud storage, shipping, document management, or data entry automation. Perhaps you might have a need for apps in marketing and sales, such as social media, customer relationship management, email list management, or web applications. If you are not sure where to look, ask your friends what has saved them the most time. Which apps are currently your favorite?
- Upgrade your accounting system.

- Develop your 2019 prosperity plan.
The word “budget” has somewhat of a negative connotation, but a prosperity plan sounds like fun. Whichever you prefer to call it – the idea is to determine what goals you want to reach so that you have a clear path to making your desired prosperity a reality.
- Create a theme or mantra.
Want to stay more focused in 2019? A theme or mantra can remind you to stay on track with a particular goal. Brainstorm a phrase that will guide you in 2019. Here are some examples:
- Customer service excellence
- More me-time
- Enthusiastic, engaged employees
- Expanding digital presence
- Delegate something that isn’t getting done.
One way to feel amazingly re-energized about your business is to give an employee a task that’s been on your to-do list for far too long. Watch it magically get done right before your eyes!
