Prior to midnight on December 25th your business may be struggling to keep up with the commotion that the holiday season brings. But once Christmas day arrives, operations often come to a grinding halt until after the new year.

Solopreneurs and large organizations alike often feel the “sting” of this sluggish holiday down time. But the good news is that you can be using this slower than average time to ramp up your business in a variety of ways.

Try Out New Technology

Millennials may know what a “Snapchat” is, but do you? Do you know about its features and realize its potential to take your business to the next level?

Snapchat is just one example of the many new technologies to come out over recent years. If you have not had a second to familiarize yourself with new apps, social media sites, and software, now is the time to download and play around with them. Some leading app suggestions:

  • Instagram
  • Whatsapp
  • Photo editing apps

Thank Your Customers

Our world is becoming more informal by the day. But anyone of any age will appreciate a hand written and meaningful thank you note.

Your time is just as precious during the holidays as it is during other times of the year. To streamline your thank you notes you can:

a) Purchase blank or thank you notes in bulk (or you can use a digital program)

b) Find a template online to use (or create your own!)

Set Aside Time for Loved Ones

It can be hard to gear down from the stress of working 10 or more hours each day to sitting around at home without a loaded schedule. You can reload your calendar by setting aside time to see friends and family, and by making sure that you treat your partner to a much deserved one-on-one dinner date.

Take Care of You

When is the last time you booked an appointment with your dentist, your doctor, or enjoyed a much deserved massage? Now is the time to take care of yourself and those who live in your home (including your four legged friends!). You will be thankful that you took care of these tasks when you could.
