Personal Vs Business New Year Hacks

The New Year tends to bring on the inevitable New Year's Eve regrets and thoughts of unattainable resolutions.

Clear your mind and take stock of how far you have come with your business achievements, re-energise your aspirations for the year ahead and set yourself some achievable business and personal goals. These hacks will help get you on track to building your personal brand and separating it from your personal identity.

Hack 1

Separate your work identity from your personal identity.

Trust your own currency and invest in the time to develop your business profiles through LinkedIn, your website, or even create a business blog or newsletter.  Your personal brand is one of your most strategic assets. Solo-entrepreneurs often start in this place and must be deliberate in evolving their company brand as they grow.

Hack 2

Take back your time.

Invest in your valuable time and buy a business phone number instead of giving your personal number to clients. By separating the two, you can more easily manage your personal and business priorities and attention for the year ahead.

Hack 3

Make your business Lean! ​

Resolutions are about improvement and, in the spirit of the New Year, there are several techniques you can implement to create a more efficient business. One such technique is the 'Lean Method', which entails reducing wasteful practises. This may mean removing red-tape form your processes, reducing unnecessary business expenses or investigating more efficient and cost-effective ways to operate.
