Business Owners Encouraged to Carry Out Their Annual Review Early

While many business owners wait until the end of the year to carry out their annual review, they were today advised to look back on the year to date and ahead to the future earlier than that. The suggestion came from a business training expert who advised that the New Year isn’t usually the best time of year for this important task.

Founder of YourBusinessCoachingClub, Craig Ridley, mentioned in a message to his members that the end of the year is best seen as a time for celebrating and for spending time with loved ones rather than for carrying out business reviews. He also said that this is something can really be done at any time at all.

Mr Ridley stated that, “there are a number of vital questions that entrepreneurs should be asking themselves when they carry out an annual review.” As examples, he mentioned areas such as that of working out whether a shift of focus is needed, whether current business relationships are all beneficial and whether more effort needs to put into time management.

It was also pointed out that this is a good opportunity to see whether the current marketing strategy is working, what the entrepreneur is most proud of, and what new projects could be started up in the next 12 months. This is a serious and potentially vital task but Mr Ridley pointed out that it can be done in a fun, informal way by just sitting with a coffee to get started on some useful thinking time.

YourBusinessCoachingClub is a vibrant online business coaching club that draws on the 3 decades of experience that the founder has gathered. In addition to powerful coaching sessions, the site also brings together an extensive network of business owners from around the planet. YourBusinessCoachingClub offers advice and a helping hand to any type of small business owner.
