As a business owner, I recommend you have regular company reviews. Weekly, monthly, bi-annual, and annual collections of information lead to positive, effective reviews. Weekly you should enter the hours for you and your employees, your billing and invoicing, tracking information on inventory, pricing, sales, and anything specific to you and your business like your social media or marketing initiatives.

Leadership Not To Do's

Leadership Not To Do's
By Christina Suter on Sep 08, 2018 at 11:00 AM in Business Issues

The best gift you can give your employee is your choice to lead. You are the leader by default because you started the business; but when you choose to actually lead, you hold accountability for your choices and do the things that come with being a leader. Holding your employees accountable is an act of love; it's noticing/observing what they've done and offering praise.

Leadership To Do's

Being a leader has distinct responsibilities; do you know what you need to be a solid leader? Your business was birthed from your vision and running your business well helps further your purpose.

Surround yourself with people smarter than you,but don't let go of th leadership reigns.
