About Small Business Info: A New Year A SMART Year

About.com   Small Business Info
In the Spotlight | More Topics |
  from Darrell Zahorsky
Millions of people will embark on the process of making New Year's resolutions for 2008. Many small business owners will be setting business goals for 2008 as well. Yet, surveys show over half of New Year's resolutions fail. One common cause of failure is a lack of SMART goal setting. The SMART process of setting business goals and objectives is nothing new. However, I was inclined to offer a review of this process since many businesses haven't heard of the process or simply forgot the principles. Make 2008 your best year and apply SMART to your company.

The 5 Steps to Setting SMART Business Goals
Every large corporation has clearly set and articulated goals to drive the company forward. Yet, in the world of small business, many businesses lack a focused goal. "Get more business" is a typical reply of small business owners when asked of future plans. Any self-respecting C.E.O. would be tossed out of a shareholder meeting for uttering a vague response. Whether you have a 50-employee company or an empire of one, your business success depends on your ability to set and achieve goals. Put your business on the fast-track by applying the principles of SMART business goal setting.

It's Time For A New Year's Revolution
No, that's not a typo in the title. Resolutions are easy; most of us make them at least once a year. A revolution, on the other hand, is something you may not have made since you started your small business.

 
The Darker Side of Goal Setting
Why don't most people set and achieve personal goals, career goals and business goals? Goal setting is a positive, powerful practice when it ignites enthusiasm and provides clear direction. When practiced poorly, however, goal setting also has a serious downside which can undermine your success.

About Today: The Worst of 2007

In the Spotlight | More Topics | Healthy Monday |
  from Jen Hubley
My friend Jay is having a New Year's party tonight. Attendance is mandatory, he claims, and we will not be allowed to progress to 2008 without it. He's even gone so far as to characterize it as an "anti-2007" party. I don't really have a problem with 2007, but there were a few pop cultural moments we could stand to put behind us.

10 Worst Dresses of 2007
Now, I'm not going to tell you that I've never made a fashion faux pas. Generally speaking, it works like this: You put something on, it feels like it looks good, and then you get the photos back and realize you look like a sofa. However, I don't have a stylist. These people have no excuse.
