2017 Small Business Goal Roundup To Get You Thinking

Written by Nick Leffler | Comments Off on 2017 Small Business Goal Roundup To Get You Thinking | 4 min read

Every small business should have a goal for the year in addition to those smaller goals of the month or even week. The 2017 small business goal roundup are some goals other small businesses have set for the next year.

Sometimes it’s nice to see what others are doing for their small business. Seeing what others are doing for their goals can help spark some ideas for your goals.

This roundup will give you an idea of what types of goals others are setting.

Here’s a quick way for you to see what five other small business owner’s goals are for 2017 plus mine. I also included a question about what their business outlook was for the next year. For that one the overall consensus is that 2017 will be better than 2016.

The contributors to this list come from many different sources on the Internet. They aren’t specific examples of the best or worst just real small business owners sharing their goals.

Now it’s time to enjoy looking at what others are hoping to do in 2017.

We really want to bring value to our state’s coffee farms and roasters, not just our customers.

Your Goals

Hopefully this list has given you some ideas of what others are doing and maybe some ideas for your own goals. As you wind up the end of the year it’s time to start thinking about them.

The goals you make now will help drive your actions for the next year. Without a goal then you’ll lack direction and it’ll be difficult to grow your business.

If you’re having a hard time thinking about goals for your small business, you’ll gain some direction from this post but it’s up to you to come up with a unique goal for your small business.

Here’s my one suggestion for every small business if you haven’t done so already:

If you don’t already have an email list started for your small business, there’s never been a better time than this year. You can start building your email list without a website or any costs. You can download my free eBook and start building your small business email list now.

Now go out and conquer 2017 with amazing goals that will get your small business somewhere.

What are your goals? I’d love to hear what they are and you can leave them in the comments section to share with others.
