Review Your Account Books

Many times, a business could be spending too much money on certain expenses, or there is a miscalculation in reporting, which can cause skewed numbers for the future. Take time to fully review your books and determine how successful 2014 were for the business based on profits and look for any ways you can cut back expenses to increase net profits for the next year.

Read More Books
Great leaders such as Steve Jobs, Winston Churchill, Nike founder Phil Knight, and other impactful leaders in history read. They did not only read about business, but read books across all genres. Studies have shown, reading stimulates your brain and increases creativity. You do not have to read a book a week. Simply aim to read one book a month and work your way up from there. Here is a list of a few great books to read by CEO.com:
Plan a Vacation
All work and no play is not a wise thing to do. Successful business owners know taking a break is more beneficial for the business and yourself. Working too much is harmful to your health, can hurt important relationships in your life, and decreases productivity and efficiency. To avoid overworking yourself, start planning next year’s vacation now. Pick a month and the destination you want to go to! It can be a grand trip to Europe or a stay-cation at home where you disconnect from the world.
Annual Employee Reviews
Small business owner’s make the mistake of not doing end the year reviews. Whether the employee is brand new or old, it is crucial to give the employees who work under you one-on-one time to review their performance of last year. This feedback will help them grow and develop in their career and hopefully shape them into leaders one day. It also gets everyone on the same page about business goals and objectives to make sure this New Year goes well!
