5 Ways to Spring Clean Your Biz
We want to start off this article by saying, wow. We had no idea this would release the week that we would be social distancing, with many businesses + lives changing so rapidly, but it seems quite aligned. For many of us, this time of being still might mean less. Less work, less pressure we’re putting on ourselves, but more time with family and going through the influx of emotions that is sure to come along with COVID-19. And for a large group it might mean a time of productivity, making sure things are in place for a steady “come back”, still going through the motions of dealing with our current situation but with their output as a main focus. Then, there’s the rest of us. Sitting somewhere in the middle of thinking how this will impact their business, tossing and turning about everything that’s taking place, but hopeful and preparing for days ahead — where everyday looks a little different.
We encourage you to bookmark this post for a day when productivity strikes, for when this feels aligned for you.But if it doesn’t? Remember, we’re all just doing our best. If there is any way we can help you, our beloved community, please let us know in the comments and as always, be well.

3. Gather Ideas
All of those crazy ideas that you’ve had? Now is the perfect time to sit down, write them out and strategize about which ones you’re extra passionate about, and which ones you’re better off crossing off the list.
4. Review Expenses
While you’re at it, review your expenses and see if there are any you pay for that you don’t really need or — guilty as charged — pay for without realizing. We do this now once a quarter and it has been a great practice to implement! What once took us a solid few hours on our first go around now takes only minutes.
