Valentine’s Day, the day of L-O-V-E! But do you still love your BUSINESS? Many business owners we meet, certainly DON’T. They used to. They used to wine and dine it. Shower it with affection. Buy it gifts – regularly. Spend hours and hours with it and go to bed looking forward to seeing it again in the morning!

But not anymore.

They’ve not replaced it with a mistress. They’ve just got into a rut, a 9-5 rut. Things are tough, it’s a drudge. Spending time with the business isn’t what it used to be, it’s not exciting anymore. Excitement has been replaced with anguish, even boredom.

If that sounds like you, then we can help you fall in love all over again with your business. It isn’t easy… but here are a few top tips for how to show your business some love this Valentines day:

1. Take a trip down memory lane…

Pull out that business plan! Take some time to reminice about where you started, what you have achieved and plan for the future.

2. Dress to impress…

Give your business a makeover. Does your website need updating? Could the office do with a spring clean and a coat of paint? Do you need a complete rebrand? Spend some time thinking about the aesthetics of your business and how you can improve.

3. Wine and dine…

Your clients, your staff. Without your clients and staff you wouldn’t have a business so take the time to show them some appreciation. Whether it is quite literally wine, a nice meal, a box of chocolates, a discount on your products/services or just a heartfelt thanks, everyone likes to feel appreciated.

4. A date…

If you really want to get to know someone, you spend time with them. So, have a date with your business and plan a strategic away day with us. We regularly help our clients enjoy their businesses again. You see, it doesn’t matter how little or how much money you have at the moment or how well or how poorly your business is doing – you need to enjoy your business to make it better… To make it grow and blossom.

This Valentines day, show some love for your business. If you would like to book a strategic away day or if we can help in any way give us a call on 01332 292022 or drop us an e-mail to advice@cedarandco.co.uk.
