    TIB285 Is Your Business Ready For Christmas_ What You Can Do NOW To Prepare

    TIB285 Is Your Business Ready For Christmas_ What You Can Do NOW To Prepare

    Chrisco figured this out years ago. Start planning (and saving) for Christmas on the 26th December THE YEAR PRIOR! That way you avoid the embarrassment of Aunty Beryl's pavlova being the only dessert on the table to feed 14 people and every bon bon having the same coloured hat. Christmas can be just as stressful as a business owner, especially if you've left your preparations to the last minute. Insufficient cash flow, too much work on, impossible deadlines, cranky clients, staff wanting to take leave and no way to know how to manage it all! We unpack some simple things you can do NOW so you avoid the usual Christmas headaches.

Good stuff.

Good job guys. It is nice to find a podcast dedicated to those in the trades. As a paint contractor, I am always looking for ways to improve. I've only listened to three so far, but I like what I am hearing.

Keep up the good work.
