Just as we would do a lot of things to keep ourselves healthy such as eating nutritious food and going to the doctor, we should also take necessary steps to keep our business in good condition.
Evaluate your business and all its aspects: your business partners, employees, customers, products and services. If you notice some deficiencies, address them accordingly. Use benchmarks in checking your company’s performance. Do know that employees and customers tend to be silent before leaving. Make sure that you do something to reach out and express your gratitude to people behind the success of your business.
Budget and Expenses
We all have admitted the fact that without money, a business cannot go running. Check to see if you revenues are concentrated to only a few customers. Perhaps you can do something to boost your sales. Evaluate your marketing and advertising expenses, and make sure you are gaining more than what you have invested in them.
Quality Time for Everybody
You and your employees have been working for at least 40 hours every week. No matter how busy you can get, you and your employees have your own personal lives that should never be taken for granted. All of us need quality time alone or with our loved ones to relax, rejuvenate and reenergize so as to keep our sanity.
In your evaluation of your company, think of unhealthy habits your company is still doing despite the fact that they no longer benefit you. Examples are meetings you usually do that would take long hours or reports that just go unread. Do something to change or avoid those sorts of unhealthy business habits.
Always stick to your business resolutions. Hire a business coach or create an advisory council. Make sure that you encourage every person in your company to carry out your resolutions to become a better company.
