There’s so much you have to do when you own and run
your own business!
But the day-to-day pressure can sometimes get in the way of you taking to time to build your business skills or attend to the boring-but-so-important housekeeping tasks.
Each business day, you wake up with the best of intentions. Then the telephone starts ringing, the emails starting clogging up your Inbox, your customers jostle for your attention, your accountant wants those figures … and suddenly it’s the end of the day and you’ve only done half of what you wanted to do.
Not only that, but we suspect that hidden within that long task list are things that could cause you real headaches — or even break your business altogether — if you don’t get on top of them.
Let us help you tackle the important stuff
Essential Business Nudges are weekly emails designed to give you a gentle reminder about the things you know you should doing, but don’t always get round to doing. You know the sorts of things we mean: the jobs you put off because they’re boring, or they’re not ‘jostling for your attention’, or you just don’t know how to do them.
That’s where we come in.
Sign up and each week we’ll send you a short email that prompts you to carry out just one important task. Each email is accompanied by a PDF resource that not only tells you what you need to do, but explains how to do it. Here’s an example:
Making your business more fun to run
We know you’re busy. We only include the information you need to get on top of the task.
On the left of the PDF, we talk about what needs to be done (and why!). On the right, we explain how to do it using the resources provided, which include checklists, calculators, worksheets, and so on. Whatever’s needed to help you get the job done.
At the bottom, we include links to the resources and to organisations or publications that can help you further.
Print the PDF and use the Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, Word documents and worksheets as many times as you like.
And, once you’ve completed each task, give yourself a pat on the back. You’ve carried out one more step towards making your business better, safer and more fun to run.
