The New Year is a time to start fresh for both your personal life and your business. Who knows, 2017 may be your best year yet. As we start to think about what we want to do differently this year, it may seem overwhelming. There are a lot of options. But just remember, not everything needs to change.
Sometimes it is the little things that can make the biggest impact on your business. Maybe you are thinking about organizing your finances differently. Money is a big focus in many people’s lives and managing it can be tough. Running your business, making sure the books are in order, and making sure you are putting enough back into your business are all important things to focus on in the new year. Maybe you have been putting off buying that new truck for your home and garden business? Or maybe you have been thinking about opening a second location for your restaurant but need the immediate funding to make it happen. A small business line of credit could be your answer. But it is not the only option for you. In fact, there are a lot of options available to you including a merchant cash advance. Why not make a commitment in 2017 to research opportunities for your company?
5 of the Most Common New Year’s Resolutions
We have already talked about financial resolutions which are extremely popular. But there are many other commitments people choose to make during the month of January. Whether you are looking to start something new or break a bad habit, setting a goal and sticking to it can often be more important than achieving the goal itself. Remember, the journey is the reward.
Stay Fit and Healthy
It is no secret, the number of new gym memberships that are opened during the month of January is drastically higher than the rest of the year. This is in part thanks to the New Year’s Resolution craze; as well as, most people gaining a few pounds thanks to mom’s fudge or Grandma’s cookies over the holidays. So, if you run a gym or two, how do you plan to grab a good portion of those people looking for a deal on a new membership. If the deal is too good to pass up, you may even grab new members from your competition.
This may be the number one resolution but studies show that most people do not stick to it past February.
Learn Something New
Now if you are in business and this is your goal, now is the time to learn how to apply for a small business line of credit. Knight Capital Funding can help and you will have accomplished your goal. Just kidding. We know that most goals to learn something new are not necessarily business related. But if you own a business why aren’t you setting your goals up for personal and business success? This year, if this is your New Year’s Resolution, we challenge you to learn something new for you personally and for you professionally. Your family and employees will thank you.
Fall in Love
Now, we may not be able to help you fall in love but we do know that most people can’t fall in love if they don’t first love themselves. Try doing some things just for you early in the year. This will help you realize how important and valued you are. That way, when you do find that perfect person, you are ready to share everything about yourself. Why not take the time to fall in love with your work as well? As business owners, we can often lose sight of why we started our business in the first place. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Focus on the passion you once had and try bringing that joy back into your work.
Enjoy Life to the Fullest
As business owners, we can often get consumed by our work. There are days we don’t think about anything but our business and this can be tough on our personal lives; as well as, our professional lives. How can you expect investors to invest with you if you aren’t passionate about your work anymore? This year, why not make time for yourself. There is no better time than the present to start enjoying life to the fullest.
For many New Years is a chance to start fresh. To rediscover why you are passionate about something or to fall in love. It is a magical time of year that few take advantage of outside of saying they are going to do something.
As we celebrate new beginnings this year, why not make a commitment to yourself? Set a goal to learn something new and no it does not have to be how to get a small business line of credit (if you don’t want it to be). Whether you are learning something new, getting healthier, or falling love, make 2017 your best year yet.
