The past few months we’ve been looking for the perfect tool for our monthly reports. After searching high and low, we found that there is no one perfect solution for compiling data and building reports. Instead we had to identify the most important aspects of the report and choose a tool with those in mind.
We’ve been doing some spring cleaning around the office and not just a new hairbrush for the cats (we did get one of those too, and it’s serious business). We’re focusing our attention on updating a few key documents to collect details, keep us on track and prevent seemingly small tasks from falling through the cracks.
We’re all familiar with the idea of the “fun quirky office.” Maybe you’ve seen a friend from high school posting things on Facebook and wondered to yourself (or commented, if that’s your thing) “does this company ever get any work done?”
So you’re a business owner and that’s pretty cool. You’re probably doing a lot of things right, making great business decisions and keeping everything running smoothly. You’ve probably also got a few pet projects going, those projects you’ve wanted to do for a while and are a lot of fun but may not be completely vital to your business and its success. One of the keys to keeping your business successful and managing your time is knowing when to leave these pet projects behind. They may be tons of fun but those projects can easily spiral out of control, taking you away from the core duties of running your business.
Roundpeg isn’t just about finding a fit for myself, it is also about finding a “fit” for my clients. After too many years in the corporate world looking at easy, cookie-cutter, one size fits all approaches, I knew small businesses needed something different. So Roundpeg is about helping business owners find a strategy that fits. And finding that perfect fit for each client is not a simple straight line from start to finish.
Problems, we all have them. Personal ones, work-related ones, corporate ones, everywhere you look there are issues. Sometimes we try to run from them or avoid them for as long as we can, but that strategy usually ends up backfiring on us in the long run.
