There’s no better time of the year to reward yourself than the holidays. Bilang entrepreneur, deserve mo din ng something nice after a year of hard work and dedication. Beyond the material things that you can buy, here are gift ideas that will actually help you grow even further as a person and as an entrepreneur.
1. Online Courses
If you’re still thirsty for self improvement, then this is definitely the way to go. This makes perfect sense especially if you want to get to know more about a department in your business that is not yet your forte. For example, instead of just putting money on Facebook ads, why not learn how it works? And why not invest in learning more about building an e-commerce website if you don’t have one yet?
You can visit Udemy, Coursera, Skillshare or Masterclass to find a course that you are interested in. At maganda pa dito, you can do everything at your own pace since all the courses are video series.
2. Hire a Business Coach
You know what professional athletes, actors and singers have in common? They all have a coach that makes sure they are on the right path. Same with business owners, they need someone who can look at their business from a different perspective.
This way, you can recalibrate your business, focus on facets that work and abort those that don’t. The Harvard Business Review said it best: “The goal of coaching is the goal of good management: to make the most of an organization’s valuable resources.”
Think about this: is there a product or service that goes hand-in-hand with the ones that you’re already offering? If yes, it might be a good idea to diversify and start another business venture. Perfect example of this is a water refilling station that has a laundry & drycleaning service right beside it.
Not only will you be maximizing your profits, but you get to achieve another milestone before the year ends!
Last but definitely not the least is going out of town with your loved ones! You definitely could use a day out on the beach or going on tour. But knowing you, instead of actually going and enjoying your vacation, you are probably scouting for potential business locations.
