It’s been said there are five characteristics that fuel the entrepreneurial spirit: Planning, Passion, Patience, Perseverance, and Problem-Solving. If you’ve already started your own business, you’re nodding your head right now. Many small businesses begin with problem-solving – how can I make this product better, make this task easier, fill this need for my community?
Whether your small business was this year’s resolution or culmination of years of planning, patience, and perseverance, the mid-way point of the year is a great time to take a step back and
- Revisit your business goals
- Check in with your business and personal teams
- Review your business finances
Would upgrading or changing technology and tools help your employees work more productively? Are year-to-date expenses in line? Could you use an extra set of eyes to help identify adjustments to strengthen your financial position? Taking time at the midpoint of the year to reevaluate and access key areas of your business can set you up for a strong finish to the year.
