I know. It's hard for us to NOT give a shit about what others think. It's almost like some of us are conditioned to seek approval in life (most of us truly are). In the beginning I tried to be that "girl" that made sure I said the right things, talked to the right people and made the right moves.
Yes, it’s officially 2018 and we’re all full of excitement, hope and we’re also bound to set ourselves up for failure (by next month) if we don’t capture these emotions. But how? Why? Most people believe that writing down their goals is a great idea. Most people can’t find where they wrote their goals down a week after they actually wrote them. Instead of worrying about putting pen to paper, get creative, gather the team and start the vision board process. It’s like scrapbooking for your brand and planning for your future with your teams perspective and ideas.
With the new year just days away it's not only time to unfriend, hide or unfollow those annoying people from your social media platforms… it's also time to take a deep dive into your client roster.
Do you have clients that should be paying more? Do you have clients that don't value your time? Do you have 24 hour clients? Do you have clients that you tolerate? If you answered yes to at least one of those questions it's time to do something about it.
Firing a client isn't an easy task. It's usually not something that we want to do. In our heads we say, at least they pay us on time or we've been with them for years. It's a process that all small businesses have to deal with so let's jump in.
As we wrap up each week, each month and each year of our business we always take a moment to reflect and pay attention to the apps, strategies and ideas that made a difference in our business growth. Working “on” your business and “in” your business seem to be such an arduous task for so many small businesses. Being the bookkeeper, manager and human resource person can be extremely difficult to juggle. Our company, 3E Connections, Inc. has figured out a way to cut down on email, bill clients on time and provide exceptional customer service.
We've asked and Twitter finally delivered....The social media platform recently rolled out extended tweet character limits, doubling from a simple 140 to up to 280.The change has now raised the question of how do we EFFECTIVELY utilize all these characters to our blog, business or brand's advantage?
When launching and scaling your small business, we often have a list of things we need to accomplish to be successful and order them based on what is the top priority. More often then not we see business owners put public relations, as well as social media and graphic design work, on the back burner.
