Let us not beat around the bush … 2020 has being one hell of a year, am I right?
This is especially true for businesses across the globe, but in true human nature we have managed to overcome many of the challenges which we were faced with some eight months ago and have started to rebuild what was broken down.
So, now that we are in the fourth quarter of the year and things are slowly drawing to a close (and not a minute too soon I would say), I decided it would be good to look at ways to end off this Q4 with a bang.
Are you ready?
SOME TIPS FROM THE WRIGHT LIFE FOUNDER – TRISH WRIGHT
Let me share with you some tips on how I end the year...
1. RE-EVALUATE YOUR GOALS
If your like me, then you have your five year goals planned out. There is nothing wrong with going back and taking a look at your goals and evaluating if those same goals apply or if you need to make some changes. Need

2. START NEXT YEARS PLANNING
It’s not too early to begin planning for next year, actually this is the best time. Starting planning your calendar, promotions, marketing and social media content. That way when 2019 hits, your already ahead of the game.
3. MAKE SURE THE MONEY RIGHT
If it don’t make dollars, it don’t make cents divas. Now is the time to begin meeting with your accountant to look your year end taxes, profit and loss.
4. SHOW APPRECIATION
I bet you had some amazing clients and vendors that supported you this year. Create some custom holiday greeting cards to send out. The best time is around November.
COMMUNICATION IS KING
Communicating with your team is extremely important. You need to make sure that they are on the same page as you and that everyone knows what is needed to end off the quarter as strong as possible.
Many businesses had to shut down for most of the year and this would have had a detrimental effect on everything from morale through to financial.
So it is integral to the continued success of you business to keep the lines of communication open and let your team know that whether they are in office or working remotely, they are able to relay any concerns or challenges so that it can be addressed and things can go on business as usual – and that the ending off can be successful.
STAY ON TRACK
Having a routine and schedule in place is what makes most businesses meet and exceed their targets for each quarter. It allows for the team to stay focused and see the end goal in sight. However, this may not have been something that was top of mind during these uncertain times. But now that many businesses are operating as per normal, it is a good idea to stay as focused and on point as possible so that you may take yourself and your team into the new year without much back log.
MAKE SPACE FOR MISTAKES
Mistakes are human nature and therefore making room for these to happen is important.
As a business owner, you should be prepared for anything and deal with it accordingly. No added stress is needed right now.
KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE
The prize being, HOLIDAYS and the end of what can only be described as a rollercoaster of a year.
Whatever you may have had to face in business this year, know this – the end is near and no one can predict what may happen in the new year, but what is important is to be in the now, focus on your business and what it needs right now – and the rest will flow into place.
