As the current year winds down, many of us have the urge to kick back, relax and soak up the holiday season. The end of the year may mark a time of closure, but it also offers opportunities in business that won’t come again for another 11 months. Here are a few December mistakes business professionals need to work to avoid:
Not Sending out a Card: Whether it is a Christmas/holiday greeting or simply a Thank You for Your Business, December is an excellent time to acknowledge how grateful you are to have the clients you do. A few lines in a holiday card can do wonders for showing gratitude and solidifying relationships.
Not Planning for the Upcoming Year: Launching into a bright, shiny New Year without a plan is like a ship leaving the ha rbor without a destination. Planning for the future is critical to the continued success of your business.
Not Reviewing Past Victories: Like the saying goes, “You can’t tell where you are going unless you know where you have been.” Reviewing past victories and triumphs of the year will give business professionals the fuel to power forward in the New Year.
