1. Start working on your 2015 Marketing and Strategic Plan
Hit the ground running in the New Year. Be at the stage to implement so you are ahead of the game, instead of trying to set your plans in January and only starting to implement in February.
2. Clear your desk and archive important documents
I always enjoy the first day back in the New Year when you have the clean desk and everything is organised as you put the time in before you left. Leave an extra hour (or more depending on the look of your desk) spare on your last day to clean up and prepare for a fresh start.
3. Review your cashflow plan
There is nothing worse than the first week back and having to work out how you are going to pay the wages etc. Review your cashflow and ensure that you have money aside for your January bills.
4. Do some mid-year tax planning.
Have your financials reviewed in January for the 1st 6 months. This will save a lot of heartache later in the year of surprise tax bills or GST adjustments.
5. Finally, enjoy time with family and friends and have a great break!
