17 Tips for the Successful Entrepreneur in 2019

It’s almost that time- a happy new year from Grizzly Sales Force! The new year holiday brings cherished moments with friends and family, a bit of vacation time, a glass or two of champagne, and another year of opportunities. The successful entrepreneur doesn’t look ahead and see the next 365 as a mountain to climb, but rather a ladder reaching to the heights of unmatched success. We’ve consulted our team of winners here at Grizzly Sales Force and compiled the ultimate list of advice for a successful 2019.

  1. Network, network, network. Take a moment to wish all of your colleagues and mentors a happy new year and see where the conversation blossoms.
  2. Grow your team this year, even if it’s only by one.
  3. Set at least three meaningful, long term goals. Any successful entrepreneur knows how to set a goal but setting a goal that takes more than a couple of weeks to achieve is where the struggle lies. Think about the entire year ahead, and ask yourself “where do I want to be at the end of 2019?”
  4. Connect with the human aspect of your business. It is easy to plant yourself behind a computer and dive into numbers and quotes each day, but every successful entrepreneur knows the importance of checking in with their customers and team members.
  5. Re-inspire your work and clarify your vision.
  6. Never become complacent.
  7. Create a new game plan. Each new year brings change, so a 5-year plan is a thing of the past. Outline your plans and goals for 2019 and start with number 1.
  8. Keep an eye on the industry. Watch your competitors and focus on industry trends.
  9. Don’t expect immediate success. The path of an entrepreneur is winding, not linear- success truly comes to those who wait.
  10. Tear down your minimums and raise your expectations. As a successful entrepreneur, it is imperative that you do more than you did yesterday.
  11. Plan a vacation. It is easy to fall into the crazy routine of business, and before you know it you’ve made it to Christmas 2019 without a single day off. Take a mental break, and set a vacation date as a motivator.
  12. Pinch a few pennies in 2019. Running a business is hard, start the new year with strong financial habits.
  13. Up your professional game through your wardrobe.
  14. Remember to take care of yourself and your mental health- you are the head of your business, keep it sharp.
  15. Give your LinkedIn a makeover. LinkedIn is your prime networking tool, do not let it slack.
  16. Pursue a new social media option for your business. The world of social media
  17. Don’t be afraid to ask for help in 2019, no entrepreneur can handle the weight of the world alone.

From all of us here at Grizzly Sales Force, we wish you a year full of happiness.
