As you prepare to close out 2018 and welcome the new year, what are you thinking about? Are you setting goals, writing resolutions, or looking back on your year? What do you want your business to look like in 2019? Will you increase your sales? Add to your professional knowledge? Diversify your offerings? How will you go about accomplishing these things?
Goals aren't going to meet themselves and like the successful entrepreneur you are, you know you'll need a game-plan. ASDP member Terri Martin recently shared this fascinating article that she came across from American author and entrepreneur, James Clear. An article from jamesclear.com/measure-backward challenges us to think about how we assess our progress in all areas of our life, business and personal, in a new way.
Joining the ASDP or renewing your membership is a great way to jump-start your business development in the new year. Participate in the online discuss list to network with your colleagues to problem solve, test ideas, or find new vendors.
