Welcome fabulous businesswomen and CEOs to the end of 2023! As we gear up to bid farewell to this year, it’s time to set your sights on a prosperous 2024.

But the secret is that you must embrace change and adaptability in every aspect of your business.

In this blog, let’s explore the necessary changes to ensure your business not only survives but thrives in the coming year.

Plus I’m sharing why I decided to step into the consulting space, add more value to my services, invest in technology, and above all, prioritise my own wellbeing.

Change and adaptability is the catalyst for growth

If there’s one thing we’ve learned this year – and the previous few years – it’s that adaptability isn’t just a nice-to-do, it’s a must-do.

The business world is evolving at lightning speed, and if we don’t keep up, we risk getting left behind.

Think of change as your business’s best-kept secret. It’s like trying out a new workout class – uncomfortable at first, but rewarding in the end.

By embracing change, you can unlock new opportunities, reach new customers, and even redefine your industry.

But how do you create a business that thrives on change? It starts from the top. Creating a culture of adaptability begins with you as the visionary business owner.

You must encourage your team to step out of their comfort zones, to try new things, and learn from your mistakes along the way.

Remember, it’s not about getting it right every time. It’s about being open to growth and to evolution.

I added consulting to my services

This year I decided to step into the consulting space by offering business systems and streamlining services.

I was seeing all too often that visionary business women, like you, had an amazing business halted by a lack of systems and processes. So I decided to open up some consulting spaces to help.

My background in these fields allowed me to do this easily and now I offer:

Business Systemise Service

This service is for business owners who want to systemise, streamline, and simplify a one-off project in their business to help increase efficiency and improve productivity.

You can use this service for projects including client onboarding, inbox management, social media scheduling, filing structure and file naming, appointment booking, online event management, and funnel design.

30-60-90 Day Framework Service

If you’d like to attract a surge of fresh clients and expand your client base in the next 90 days, the 30-60-90 day framework service is a strategic and actionable roadmap that I can help you implement for operational efficiency and achieving this growth.

Whether you’re a seasoned online business woman looking to expand your reach or a newcomer eager to make a strong entrance, the next 90 days can be a transformative period for your business.

Add more value to your offerings

As a visionary business woman myself, this year I also decided to enhance my product offerings. For me, it wasn’t just about what I was providing to my clients, but how I was delivering it and whether my offers were the absolute best they could be.

So I refined my offerings and restructured them to be more valuable.

Consider the value you’re providing to your clients. Can you offer more or deliver your products or services in a better way?

Perhaps it’s a free webinar, a consultation service, or it could even be a more streamlined customer service process. Small tweaks can make a big difference.

Invest in tech and automation

We live in a tech-savvy world, and businesses – including my own – must harness this power to thrive and be prosperous in 2024.

Tech and automation aren’t just nifty tools; they’re integral to growth and evolution. They’re the secret sauce that can take your business to the next level.

When I reflected on my own business and made changes this year, I looked at how I could streamline my operations even more.

I looked more into automating customer service, project management, marketing, and my CRM system – and I started updating my systems and processes so my business worked for me and I didn’t have to do so much heavy lifting every day!

Remember tech can save you time, reduce human errors, and let you focus on what really matters – your big vision. That’s what I’ve been able to do this year thanks to investing in tech.

In a time where customer loyalty is gold, tech can help you understand their preferences and respond to their needs in real-time. It’s like having a crystal ball that tells you exactly what your customers want!

Investing in tech isn’t just for big businesses. It’s for anyone who wants to work smarter, not harder.

Prioritise wellbeing for productivity

I often hear my clients talking about the hustle and daily grind of business, but here’s the truth: Wellbeing is another secret ingredient for productivity.

When you feel good, you work better. It’s really that simple. So I revisited that simplicity this year for my own wellbeing.

Physical wellbeing is a big part of this. I realised being physically fit meant I had more energy, I was more alert, and I felt ready to take on whatever challenges came my way.

And I also focused on my mental wellbeing more because a positive mindset is crucial. When I do this, I have a sunnier outlook on a cloudy day, and I found I was able to find solutions to problems more quickly and easily, and feel happier overall.

I’ve found that when I focus on my wellbeing, everything else falls into place.

Hiring an Online Business Manager (OBM) to grow your business

Think of an OBM as your secret for your business growth.

They’re not just task managers; they’re strategists, project managers, and efficiency experts all rolled into one.

Having an OBM is like having a co-pilot for your business journey.

When is the right time to hire an OBM?

It all boils down to how you answer these questions:

  • Are you overwhelmed by your business’s day-to-day operations?
  • Are strategic projects piling up because you’re too caught up in the daily tasks and activities?
  • Do you feel like there’s not enough hours in the day, and your time with your family is eaten into with business tasks?

If you just said yes to any or all of these questions, it’s time to bring an OBM on board. They can help lift that weight off your shoulders, allowing you to focus on growth.

What are the key benefits of an OBM?

An OBM can be a game-changer in streamlining your operations and managing projects effectively. They can:

  • help enhance productivity
  • get things done more efficiently
  • be your strategic partner
  • help you think bigger and bolder
  • train your team
  • take tasks off your plate
  • take your business to new heights

Look for someone with a track record of helping businesses grow and excel. When you find the right OBM, they’ll align with your business’s unique needs and become an invaluable part of your team.

To have a prosperous 2024 your must change and adapt

As you gear up for a prosperous 2024, it’s clear that adaptability, value-adding strategies, tech investments, wellbeing, and strategic partnerships with an OBM are essential shifts you must embrace.

Now is the time to begin weaving these changes into the fabric of your business.

By doing so, you’re setting yourself up for prosperity and success in the coming year and beyond. Remember, change is not just necessary; it’s an opportunity for growth and transformation.
