The coming of a new year brings on the making of new year’s resolutions. These resolutions show what a person wants to achieve in a year. But, what about for businesses? Do they set resolutions too? Our pool maintenance franchise has gathered the top tips to setting goals that matter for your business in the coming year.
Managing Time Matters
Even though you may get wrapped up in activities throughout the day, managing your time matters Take time at the end of each day to plan out your next day. Write down tasks you need to accomplish and break down larger goals into small achievable tasks. If you start your day doing the most dreaded tasks on your list, the day can only get easier from there.
Keep Your Goals SMART

However, if you are spending thousands of dollars a month on marketing and not seeing an increase in revenue, you may need to rethink your strategy.

year, it is a practice that should be carried through the entire year.
