In this two part blog we will look at some concrete steps you can take to guide your business into the new year. These steps to success will give you the tools that you need to make sure you and your business are learning from what has been, while moving forward.
Step One - Learn from the past:
“What’s past is prologue” – William Shakespeare
A whole year has come and gone, and with it lessons, some no doubt hard learnt. We want to take a moment to reflect on what we’ve done right over the year that’s been, but also what we’ve done wrong. Here are some questions to ask yourself of your business:
Step Two - What do you want the new year to hold? Define your goals:
“Our goal can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success” – Pablo Picasso
We need a plan, yes indeed, but first we need some goals. These goals can be broad, as we’ll get plenty specific shortly, but first of all we need to set up some goal posts and generally outline the field. Our goals may look something like:
Whatever the goal is, it will be specific to you and will be constant touchstone that you can go back to. Almost like a mission statement although goals can change whereas a mission statement sets out the overall purpose and tends to be more consistent year on year.
Do any of your goals include having professional graphic design work done to make an impact and increase sales? Get in touch with us TODAY about getting started on introducing bright, new, attractive branding and a crisp, clear, unique logo that presents your business positively to everyone.
Finally summer is underway. One last burst of effort, both in business and in family life and then the entire country takes a deep breath and pauses … ahhh … here at One Bite Graphic Design & Photography headquarters, we can hardly wait.
A new year is knocking on the door, in 1-2 short weeks people from all walks of life all around the world will, at the very least, give some passing thought the year that’s been and to the year that’s coming. Some people out there will make lists of things to achieve, habits to form (or change) wrongs to right and people to meet. Resolutions will be made and when you take the time to write these down you are far more likely to stick to them. This applies to your business, perhaps even more, than it applies to your own life.
This time of year is the perfect time to reflect and make sure that the “look and feel” of your business as it's presented to the public, matches with the direction that you want to take and the plans that you now have. It’s important that your branding shows a true representation of you and your business.
We have found that people who are proud of their branding have so much more confidence in not only their business but in themselves than those who do not have design work done by a professional. You can read about Sharon’s success here.
Right, let’s get some insight in to how you feel about your brand with some questions:
