The Power of Positivity – BMTV 154


This week on BMTV, Happy New Year! 2018 is here and with it comes New Year’s resolutions and goal setting. We look at techniques for keeping positive and how that can help you achieve your goals for 2018.

Greg doesn’t like calling them New Year’s resolutions so he likes to think of them as goals. You can change and adapt goals throughout the year and Greg has developed a 5-point plan for goal setting.

These are:
1. Choose 1 goal
2. Write it down
3. Plan it
4. Allow for changes
5. Keep motivated

But his key message for 2018 is to keep positive! If you focus on the positive aspects of your business, then you are going to get positive results but if you focus on the negative then you get negative results. So, stay positive!

Now, what tools do you use to help you in your business? We have a few that we use that you might find useful. The first is Trello, this is a list-making app that you can share with work colleagues and assign tasks to different people. It helps you keep track of what needs to be done and by when! The next is Receipt Bank, this is a piece of accounting software that is able to scan in your receipts and input the data into your accounts package such as Xero. Not having to enter this data in manually has saved us around 5 hours a week!

As it’s a new year, there are a few new price increases to consider. Qualatex are raising their price of bubbles and latex balloons by at least 3% so you need to adjust your prices accordingly.
