Welcome to Your Small Business Annual Review! At least once a year, no matter the size of your business, it pays to review where you are with your business, to know that you are on the right track, or to change course if necessary.
Who This E-Workbook Is For
I created this small E-Workbook for parents who run a small business from home, although it will be useful for anyone who is self-employed. For many, this choice was in order to make an income while taking care of your children, but you have probably found that it is not an easy option! Running a business takes time and resources and effort, and there may be times when you have felt like giving up or going back to paid employment. Yet it is nearly impossible to find the same level of freedom in a job as you can get from being self-employed, as well as being more flexible for sick days, school trips and parents’ evenings!
As your children grow and you have more time on your hands, you may find that what you want from your business changes as well. The amount of time that you devote to the business each day may change as children start school, or you realise that there is more potential in your business that you are not yet exploring. Whatever you are feeling right now, a good habit to get into is to have regular check-ins with yourself about why you started the business, what you continue to get from it and what you want it to be.
The Review is a 2 hour review of your business - why you started it, what you want to achieve in the next 12 months and what you need to put in place to make it happen. It is designed for you to be able to go through on your own, but you will be given contact details in case of any questions.
