As a business owner, you’ll never have enough time. That’s why it’s so important to make the most of the time you have. Here are three ways to improve your time management skills.
- Make a List – The National Federation of Independent Business puts making a to-do list at the top of their ways to get the most of your time.
- Use the Pareto Principle – The 80/20 rule, or Pareto principle, will help you see which 20% of your actions provide 80% of your results. That helps you prioritize the time you have.
- Choose Important over Urgent – Dwight Eisenhower said, “What is important is seldom urgent, and what is urgent is seldom important.” Understand the difference and you’ll thrive.
While these tips won’t put more minutes in your day, they’ll help you make the most of the ones you have.

As your small business grows into a larger one, you’ll also need to grow your sales team, (hopefully one day into a sales force.)

Here are three ways you can ensure you’re building a sales team that’s going to go out and sell.
You can likely identify several well-known brands, but when it comes to branding your small business, how do you start?
A marketing plan is a must for any small business. There are as many ways to market a business as there are types of businesses; a well-crafted marketing plan helps you identify opportunities and make sure you’re using marketing tactics and strategies that will help you reach your business goals. Do the prep work before you take action and you’ll find the actions and path much easier once you start.
