As you sit back, relax and enjoy some Eggnog over the Christmas break, you may take some time to consider what you want more of next year, personally and professionally. While this Christmas Eve will most likely not be a bleak and cold one in Sydney, you may begrudgingly admit you’ve been a bit of a business scrooge with a visit or two from your own ghosts.
Do you want more money, more time or more control?
Unlike Ebenezer Scrooge, you’re not cursed to the same fate if you don’t change your ways. However, it’s unlikely that you’re going to end with more time, money or control next year if you don’t take some steps in a new direction.
No one said running a small business is easy, but if you find yourself working every waking hour, cash flow is always niggling at the back of your mind, and you’re losing grip on your personal life, then it’s time for a few visits this festive season.
Time - the ghost of business past.
When we’re always chasing our tail at work, it’s a struggle to make room for friends, family and most importantly, ourselves. This can leave us tired, bitter and frankly, even a little bit miserable. Being emotionally, mentally and physically exhausted from the day to day running of your business leaves you with a grand total of zero hours to work on the very thing that can break the cycle, a business strategy.
As business strategists, we’re here to help you achieve balance in your personal and professional life by identifying ways we can get your time back. Whether it’s delegating any appropriate tasks or automating processes, our goal is to put a smile back on your dial when you’re on and off the clock by making sure you’re maximising your time at work.
Money - the ghost of business present.
Whether you wish to give more to others, throw a wonderful Christmas party for the team, or take your family on more holidays – you’ll need cash in both your business and personal bank account. Money is what makes the world go round, and there’s nothing wrong with wishing for more of it. This ghost isn’t here to make you count your pennies, they’re here to empower you with numbers.
Our business advisory and accounting teams can assist you in understanding what your small business can afford at the moment and implement tools and software for effortless budget tracking. Not only that, but once we understand where you want to be in the future, we can then calculate and map out the financial path that will take you there.
Control - The ghost of business future.
The easing of restrictions has allowed many Sydney businesses to return to their office, however, that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re not going to bring it home with us. If working nine to five is the dream because your business is currently your first thought in the morning and your last one at night, then the last spirit to come your way is the ghost of business future.
If you’re burning the candle at both ends and holding off on holidays until your burnout, it’s to brainstorm ways we can get you back in control of your business this new year. The final spirit of control is here to warn you that if you continue in your current fashion, next year will be 2021 V2 with your business dictating your life instead of vice versa.
