With the Corona virus keeping everybody at home it’s a strange time for business. Personally, I’ve been laying low and feeling a bit low as I watch what the virus is doing to the world. So, apologies for not keeping up with my schedule for blog posts. I’m back to writing now and will try to keep up with my blog.
Most of the work I do for my business I can do from my home office. I was in between contracts when the Stay at Home order was put in place in Minnesota. I have since picked up a contract for a sales tax audit and am working on that.
When I’m done with that, I’ll hopefully land another. A common problem with those of us who are self employed is that when you’re working on a contract if you focus your efforts on that you end up with no work when the contract is done. You have to walk a fine line between doing your work and building your sales for what’s next. My guess is that my services that find money for people probably will become a bit more urgent for some people.
Now that I’m back to writing I’m planning on keeping my same schedule of posting every other week.
Hello all. I’m sorry I’ve been away from the site for a while with Christmas busyness and other things. I’m back and writing again. I started a series with my last post, and I will get back to that. But for my first post of 2020 I wanted to talk about New Year’s resolutions.
Businesses make New Year’s resolutions. But they call them “budgets” and “strategic plans”. They help them to know where they are going and how well they do things. They expect to measure themselves against these goals.
We make “New Year’s resolutions” and nobody really expects to keep them. I’d like to recommend to you that you take your resolutions and turn them into goals. Have a strategic plan for yourself; both career-wise and for your life. Make them something that you will track and will also achieve. You may not reach all your goals. Businesses often miss their budgets. But in the trying and in the measuring yourself against them, you will have a better understanding of yourself.
One of my goals for this year is going to be to write blog posts regularly every other week. So far, I’m on track for the year. (For the decade also!) Check back in two weeks to see if I can keep it up.
Have a great year.
Welcome. I’ll be using this space to blog about business from a financial viewpoint. My goal is to post every other week. But that will depend on my time available. For now, I’m going to shoot for every other Wednesday.
In part, how often I post is up to you. My intention is for this blog is going to be reader supported. If you find my posts to be of value, you can make a contribution. I’ll evaluate how much time I’ll allocate to writing this blog based on how much support is received.
