Gary EvansSpring is finally here!

Here at DemGen head office in Canada, it’s been a cold and snowy winter. I enjoy all the seasons we have and for me it means switching from ice skates to roller blades and hiking with four layers on to one. Here’s the thing that I really get excited about in spring, it’s a clean start! Starts are always best, it’s when you have the most energy and enthusiasm for a task or project and there’s a surge of energy towards it’s accomplishment.

Around this time of year, many partake in the ritual of spring cleaning. Beyond getting your house in order, it’s also a great time to do some cleaning and clearing with your business.

In the same way as you would clean and organize your house, spring is a perfect time to give your business a once over from top to bottom.

This spring, take a step back and look at your business from a 30,000 foot view in a new light. Are there systems, team members, cash flow, proposal layout that could be improved? Are there redundancies that are eating up your mental energy, time and/or money? Go ahead and pick just one spring project to make an improvement and view it as a clean start.

Coming back to ground level, spend some time to literally clean your office. Here’s one area that I am committed to doing this week ~ organize my workspace, file all of those sticky notes, scan the stack of business cards from recent events, dust off my keyboard and monitor (something that has been bothering me for a while especially on really sunny days – YUCK!!!)

Don’t forget to clear out your mental clutter as well.  As a conscious entrepreneur, my favorite way to clear my mind is walking in nature.  It allows me to literally take a step away from my work to find new focus and inspiration.

Taking the time to do spring cleaning for my business always leaves me feeling revitalized and refreshed, as well as increases my productivity going forward. I wish the same for you

I’ve seen this again and again.  Taking the time to get organized and start anew will pay huge dividends in the long run.

Let’s grow!
