Small Steps Make Big Difference

Thank people. Your team, clients, suppliers, family, friends. When they do something you’re grateful for, let them know it. Who can you speak with, call, or email today with a thank you?

Like your own social media posts. Add to the likelihood your post will be seen by adding your own thumbs up to every post. It all adds up (that compound effect!). Like your next post and make it a habit.

Pay attention to your money. Track what happens to your money in your business, coming in and going out. Even if it feels like the knowledge might scare you, that ongoing awareness has a calming effect. You’ll make better decisions.

Caption your videos. Over 80% of videos on Facebook are viewed with the sound off! Reach your audience with written words on the screen – add captions. This is a DIY you can do in Facebook or YouTube, or you can pay a service (Rev.com is a good one). Do you have a video important for your business online right now? Spend 15 minutes adding captions.

Learn something new. Read a book or an article, watch a video, or take a class. Spend a few minutes every day learning, so you expand your perspective and recognize new possibilities.

Small Business Accounting

  • Monthly services that you may not need any longer.
  • Advertising expenses. Look for inexpensive ways to advertise.
  • Payroll Service – Start comparison shopping and see if there is a comparable service for less money.
  • Card processing fees. There are so many out there and this is one place where you may want to really look at. You can call your current processor and ask for lower rates. They may work with you.
  • Overtime hours. Can you cut these if this is an issue?
  • Job duplication. Are there any jobs that can be combined and have one person, not two.
  • Outsourcing jobs. This is another way to possibly save a considerable amount.
  • Internet and Phone fees. Call your provider and many will work with you.
  • Software. Is there anything that can be automated with the use of new software?

These are just a few suggestions. This is something that needs to be looked at on a monthly basis when you are comparing actual to budgeted numbers. Also, if you are not able to print off a list then get started on implementing a set-up for your accounting software. I know that you can spend $17.99 per month on a top-level plan using a cloud-based software. Your business will only benefit from spending a minimal amount of money. A minimal investment that will give you way more back in returns. You will see how beneficial software is once you have it up and running. Once your daily tasks include entering things in the software you will see how easy it is to maintain. The wealth of information you obtain from reports is amazing. You will be able to be proactive and grow your business.

Entrepreneurs Struggle

When these 2 minds are not aligned, it presents a struggle. This struggle appears as a starting and stopping motion. You attempt to take action on your goal and you’re actually stopped in your tracks. The conscious mind attempts to move forward on the goals that you have for your business, yet because the subconscious mind is not engaged in the process, it pulls you right back to where you were. It’s just like getting dressed to go on a family vacation. You walk out of the front door to load up the car and you turn around and your family is still in pajamas, simply lounging around in the living room. You’re moving forward, but they weren’t informed!

In order to end the entrepreneurial struggle, the subconscious mind must be informed of your new goals. These new goals must become your new beliefs in order to become your new reality! Repetitive affirmations, vision boards, meditation, and visualization of your new goals are life-altering tools that imprint your new goals into your subconscious mind.

Your Attractive Thinker Assignment:

Create a Vision Board with Your New Business Goals!
Create a Set of Empowering Affirmations that Support Your Goals!
Meditate and Visualize Your Goals at Least 3 Times a Day!
Speak Your Goals with Boldness and Confidence Daily!

With daily repetition of these practices, you’ll reach your goal in record time! You’ll begin to spot opportunities that will help you to accomplish your goal. Unexpectedly, people will show up that have the exact resource that you need to accomplish your goal. You’ll receive ideas that will expedite your goal and take you further/faster! Consistency is key!

Choose The Best Liquidator For Business

Compare a few prospective companies

The thing is that financial matters can be very sensitive and you need to be able to work very closely with the liquidation service provider. Trusting your gut instincts as far as the services are concerned is what you should strive for. You need to be very comfortable with the liquidator to have a pleasant experience. It therefore helps to start by making a list of prospective companies offering the services and going the extra mile or speaking to them so you are able to gauge which one works best for you as far as trust goes. The way they handle you, the background and experience should all make you feel comfortable and content with what they are about to do for you.

Consider expertise in your business sector

Liquidators can work with individuals while others specialize with limited companies. What you need to make sure that your liquidator understands your business and its market of operation. When talking to the potential companies for the services, you can easily tell what sectors they are experienced in and gauge how beneficial they will be handling your situation. Ask as many questions as you possibly can when conducting the interviews and listen in to the responses you get. You can tell a lot about the competence of the liquidator in your sector even over the phone.

Look at the experience

Does the liquidator have any experience in liquidation? What strategies does he put in place and how many processes have they handled successfully? Yes is it true that even start up liquidators can still do a great job for your business during liquidation, but you will feel more comfortable when you know that your process is not a trial one for the company especially when you want it to end as fast as possible. A good liquidator needs ample experience to know the tricks of the trade, especially when dealing with tough agencies and professionals working with creditors. Experience makes liquidators competent and you also should ensure that your liquidator is licensed so you do not end up dealing with brokers.
