5 New Year’s Resolutions For Franchise Owners
With each new year comes the opportunity to start over fresh, and what a fantastic opportunity it is! While you may have nailed down your personal resolutions – start a diet, hit the gym, save more money, etc. – you may be struggling to come up with some professional goals as well.
Fortunately, we’ve got you covered. As a franchise owner in the foodservice industry, here are a few New Year’s resolutions you might want to consider.
1. I will make time for myself.
Life can get pretty hectic as a business owner. It’s important to take a step back every once in awhile to enjoy the little things – a weekend spent with family, a short holiday away from home, or even just a good book on your lunch break. Remember to take a break from the craziness of your day-to-day duties and focus on yourself now and again. Surprisingly enough, stepping away from the business every so often and returning with a clear head can actually help it thrive even better in the long run.
2. I will try something new.
Practice makes progress! Don’t be afraid to try something different within your business for the start of the new year. Keep things in a progressive state to stay ahead of the curve and enhance your professional growth overall. For those of you that own a Fazoli’s, perhaps encouraging a different management style or testing out a new menu item in your market might be a good idea.
3. I will invest in myself.
Similar to trying something new, it’s important to also learn something new. Oftentimes learning a new skill will end up influencing new practices within your business. What have you been yearning to find out more about over the past year? Now’s the time to take up a new hobby or deep dive into an area of your business that you’d like to better understand. Turns out you can teach an old dog new tricks after all!
4. I will think positively.
Leave any negative energy at the door and start 2017 on the right foot with a positive attitude. Running a business can be stressful at times. Remind yourself why you decided to start this business endeavor and remember all those customer’s you’ve made smile along the way.
5. I will stay on top of my industry.
As a business owner, it’s easy to get so caught up in the day-to-day that you forget to take time out to research the happenings of your industry as a whole. If this sounds familiar, pencil some time in at the end of each week moving forward to scan the latest industry news articles. For Fazoli’s franchisees, the Fazoli’s blog is a great place to start!
