You’ve heard it, “New Year, New Me.”

Forget about you for a moment and try “New Year, New Space” on for size.

There is nothing better than being faced with a clean slate. When it comes to your small business, why not take a moment or two to assess your business’s process. While you are at it, set new goals for the 2019 year!

Of course, setting goals isn’t hard, but setting realistic or smart goals can be a bit more challenging. You want to make sure you and your team are setting yourself up for success and not inevitable disappointment.

Here are some small and some big goals to consider for your small business in 2019:

  1. Change of Scenery

Location is supremely important. If you find your business, especially those that operate under the brink-and-mortar category, isn’t measuring up, take a look at your surroundings. It is possible you aren’t in the right location.

  1. Open a Second Business Location

If your business is thriving, perhaps you want to consider opening a second location. Take a moment to sit down and explore if expanding your brink-and-mortar footprint is the right next step for your small business.

  1. Increase Productivity

Sometimes the simplest way to increase your team’s productivity is by creating a space that is conducive to creativity. Changes like a staff room, team lounge, or food can perk up employees in ways personal affirmations can’t.

  1. Bump Up Your Aesthetic

Make you and your team want to come to work. Take what can seem like a daunting, daily task into something worth the trip. It can be as simple as adding some greenery to your space!

  1. Improve the Feng Shui

Working in cubicles is a thing of the past. Today, workers, especially Millennials, want to work in an environment that is open and friendly. A trend rocking the business world is the use of old warehouse space as a blank canvas for office space, studios, restaurants, you name it!

  1. Let Your Biz Stretch Its Limbs

Make connections with the other businesses in your community. Do this by attending networking events or workshops. After all, “it’s not what you know, but who you know.” Not a fan of going out, bring the socializing to your place!

What goals will you set this year?
