Welcome to 2023! On behalf of the entire Synergy Merchants team, we hope you’ve had an excellent start to the new year. We also hope that this year will mark your company’s most successful year to date. As a business owner, you’re surely considering ways to make your business more profitable in 2023. Therefore, we’re dedicating our first blog of the year to helping you do just that!
Give your team members more responsibility.
Nearly no business can survive as a one-person operation. Naturally, there are many entrepreneurs who utilize their own business skills and expertise to generate income. However, if you’re a business owner with employees, it’s important to rely on the skills and expertise of your team members as well. Offer your top performers greater opportunities to excel. As Jonathan Long reminds us on FreshBooks.com, you are only as good as the team around you.
“This applies to every organization, from professional sports teams to businesses of all sizes,” he writes, “A team that isn’t all operating on the same page can spell disaster for your business. When you do assemble the dream team, it’s important to use each team member to his or her full potential.”
Is there a way you can be more productive while spending less money? Can you enable some of your staff members to work from home or adopt a hybrid work model? By doing so, you can save money on equipment, supplies and materials. At the same time, you’ll allow your trusted employees to be productive on their own time. These are just a few suggestions to help you become more efficient.
“The phrase ‘Work smarter, not harder’ usually applies to increasing efficiency or productivity,” says John Hall on Forbes.com, “While efficiency improvements sometimes align with saving money, they can also be about using resources better. Maybe processes and workflows could benefit from new technologies or automation. You might also achieve higher productivity by revising project management practices.”
Learn a new skill.
You may be an expert in your field. But that doesn’t make you an expert in every field. By expanding your knowledge base and skill set, you open yourself up to a whole new world of income. Generate new ideas for your company’s offerings by learning a new trade or skill. Is there a facet of your industry you’d like to learn more about? Might there be a completely different industry you’d like to tap into?
“As an entrepreneur and business owner, you can never absorb enough new knowledge and information,” insists Long, “It’s important to always be seeking out new information and self-education, in order to grow as a person and leader. It can also have a positive impact on your life outside of work.”
