As January comes to a close it is time to put plans into action. I've joined a number of virtual networking events this month and each one has included a break-out session to discuss, "what did you learn in 2020?" If I have to summarize it in one sentence it's, "Every no is a yes." If I only get one word it's, "Balance".
A small business I follow recently launched a new product. I'm very proud of this business. They have faced many challenges over COVID, and continue to work hard to pivot their business and survive the latest lockdown. However, I'm concerned their launch won't be successful.
Planning out a strategy for a small business in 2021 is not easy. This is probably the hardest year for most small businesses to envision how the year will play out.
Each new year presents us with an opportunity to renew, realign, and refocus our goals. By looking inward and having a better understanding of our strengths and weaknesses, we can rise to the challenge of being a better version of ourselves.
