Weekly Update Vol.2019


Do you have set plans and goals for your business this month, quarter, year? Some tips to get off to the right start this year:

-Create manageable goals that you can achieve in small increments, so you don’t get lost in the big picture!

-Keep the lines of communication open in your office and within your organization. It can help you keep issues or problems contained, and not turn into something big.

-Keep your tech current. Safeguarding from credit card fraud, and building up cyber security can save you a lot of problems! Be proactive instead of reactive in your business.

-Stay involved with the Quad Chamber! Networking and attending events can open doors to new business relationships and referral partners!
