企业家年终必须要做的7件事

Miles Jenning 2014年12月08日

年终不仅是发奖金的时候,对企业家们来说,还要高瞻远瞩。回顾创业过去一年的成绩,重新规划来年要做的事项,迈向2015年的正确目标。

    本文是与《创业者》(Entrepreneur)杂志的合作内容。文章最初发表在Entrepreneur.com网站。

    12月已经来临,是时候为你的公司铸就更加美好的下一年早作打算了。

    以下是我为企业家们在年底准备的七大要务清单:

    1.奠定增长基调。

    你的企业是否有能力实现明年的增长预测?审核你对明年的发展预测,确保每一部分的预算计划得当。

    你的销售人员能够完成销售目标吗?你有足够的办公空间容纳所有雇员吗?客户量的增加,会对客户服务造成怎样的压力?访问量的增加,又会不会影响互联网的支出成本?

    2. 整理账本。

    如果你没有每个月看账本,缴税并为企业预留足够的流动资金,你就是个不够格的企业家。或许你没有花上足够的时间,好好看清账目,搞清楚公司的业绩。

    确保仔细审查财务报告,对比企业几年来的发展变化。注意是否有任何数字出现了下跌,然后制定计划在明年加以改进。

    3.召开员工会议。

    或许你总是为生意殚精竭虑,但往往忽略了和员工交流你的想法。你可能调整了公司的发展方向,或者增加了新的业务,却没有与其他人开会商讨。

    年底是回顾公司在过去一年的表现,畅谈挑战、成就和来年规划的好时机。开始欢庆会之前,应该召开员工大会,这样就不需要在晚会的欢乐气氛中谈公事了。

    4.节约开支。

    能为企业带来重大发展的巨额开支是你要考虑的重点。查看来年的各项高额支出,看看你是否能有什么办法确保减少部分开支。

    以每月的软件服务为例,通常提前一年支付可以获得20%的折扣。同样的道理,如果提前支付全年的租金,房东会给予10%的折扣。了解这些省钱的方法,马上着手投资。从长远来看,可以节省一笔不小的支出。

    Now that December has arrived, it’s time to make some smart moves to set up your company for an even better next year.

    Here’s my seven-point checklist for entrepreneurs at the year’s end:

    1. Set the stage for growth.

    Can your company accommodate the growth forecast for next year? Review your projections for next year and be sure to plan appropriately in each area of the budget.

    Do you have the sales staff to meet the revenue goals? Have you adequate office space to accommodate the hires? How will an increased number of clients strain customer service? Will an increased amount of traffic affect Internet costs?.

    2. Get the books in order.

    If you haven’t been doing your books monthly and paying taxes or setting aside money, you’re on the naughty list. Perhaps you haven’t spent enough time reviewing the numbers and the company’s performance.

    Be sure to examine the financial reports carefully and compare the changes from years past. Note if any results are off and make a plan to push the numbers in the right direction next year.

    3. Gather with staff.

    You might be thinking about your business all the time, but it’s easy to not communicate your thoughts with staff. You might have changed the company’s direction or added services without bringing everyone to the table.

    The end of the year is a great time to reflect on the company’s performance, talk about challenges and accomplishments and plan for the year ahead. Have a meeting before your holiday party so that the festivities don’t have to involve talking business.

    4. Seek out savings.

    Big expenses that hold the promise of significant growth dominate your thoughts. Look at any big-ticket items for next year and figure out if you can pay them off for a guaranteed savings.

    Monthly software services, for example, often grant 20 percent off to those who pay a year in advance. Likewise a landlord might offer a 10 percent discount if rent is furnished for the entire year. Spot these savings and make an investment now. You’ll save money over the long haul.
