Planning is the Key to a Successful Holiday Season

It’s the end of November, and no doubt, by now, you have begun to think about Christmas. You may be a small business for whom this is the busiest time of the year. Not only do you have to manage your business life, but you have your personal life to look after too. One critical key to having a successful holiday season is to plan ahead!

With 5 weeks to go, it is still not too late to do a little thinking ahead, prepare, and organize yourself. By doing so, you will reap the following benefits:

1. Planning ahead will save you money.

By starting now, you have time to shop around and spot the best deals. More often than not, retail outlets begin offering “special” items this month. Sometimes the best values on potential gifts are found now!  Keep your eyes open for gifts for your loyal customers, family, and friends.


2. Planning ahead will keep you organized.

Clearly, the holiday/Christmas season is busy in and of itself (without the shopping).  Putting up decorations, preparing cards, visiting friends and relatives, parties, concerts, movies, travel, and on it goes.  If you leave all of your planning and preparation to the last minute, it can be an added stress.  Planning ahead will free you up to enjoy yourself and others.


3. Planning. ahead will reduce stress

Once you have your plan, you can focus your attention and energy on enjoying the process. Planning helps you stay organized and make more efficient use of your time, energy, and money.

Take some time now to plan. You will be sure to bless others and yourself this holiday season!
