Clear the Clutter and Run a Better Business

Physical clutter can often lead to disorganization, stress and unproductivity. Break this cycle by doing a few simple things and smooth out the unnecessary wrinkles in your small business operations.
• Organize your loose papers, contracts, marketing materials into folders
• Store old or dated folders in boxes or cabinets clearly labelled and easily accessible
• Make sure your desk is clean of anything that does not pertain to your current projects
• Create folders on your computer and keep files clearly labelled and organize by dates and projects
• If you have 10 calendars, 5 planners and 20 different notepads all being used simultaneously, stop. Fragmenting your plans and notes will leave you feeling less organized.
• Find an all-in-one solution or product. Choose one offline method and a few computer and online solutions that can cover all your needs.
