With the postal strikes looming and the adverse weather conditions currently affecting travel across the whole UK, there’s a good chance many small business owners will have moved your final Xmas posting day forward, or maybe you’re ahead of the curve and have already got your feet up, eggnog in hand, after dispatching your last order for 2022.
Whether you’ve already stopped or are just about to break for Christmas, these weeks and typically January are quietest for most businesses. You may have some small items of business admin to keep things ticking over, but in today’s episode of The Resilient Retail Game Plan, I want to share five things you can do in your business during the quiet time.
In today’s podcast, I’ll discuss the importance of celebrating your successes after a long year’s hard work, we’ll also look at the best way to study and leverage the data from your numbers, and I’ll share some advice on how to ‘replenish your tank’. I’ll also ask you to review the state of your business and consider whether its current trajectory is sustainable and I’ll also share some learning resources for you to sink your teeth into during your downtime.
