Blogging began as a form of expression, an outlet for the online community to release their frustrations and joy into the universe. Channeling our thoughts and feelings via the written word has long been used to produce a cathartic effect, and blogging began as a public platform to do so. Since its inception, however, blogging has grown into something much bigger. Blogs are no longer merely an expression of thoughts; they now play an important role in business in terms of building, branding and promoting your company.
Many important facets of your business, from sales to team communication to customer retention, rely on building strong relationships. Whether you are providing exceptional customer service, facilitating a productive meeting or workshop, or hiring a new employee, your ability to create genuine connections will set you and your business apart!
We all have coworkers who seem to have it all together—including what seems like an impossible exercise routine. We imagine them waking up at 5 AM and tossing together a body and mind nourishing smoothie, heading out for a run while watching the sun rise, and still managing to arrive early at the office with the kind of glow you can’t pay for. Or maybe they use their lunch hour for a local yoga class, hit the gym for a session with a personal trainer after the day ends, or any other number of time-consuming fitness activities.
A new year can bring new opportunities and challenges for your business. Here are a few ways you can structure for success to set yourself up for a positive and productive 2021:
