back to school supplies for entrepreneurs

Admit it: you still feel nostalgic about shopping for back-to-school supplies. From browsing the aisles of the office supply section and carefully checking everything off your list to using new crayons for the first time, for many of us back-to-school shopping was the perfect culmination of anticipation, nerves, and excitement. We may not be in school anymore, but we can still rekindle our optimistic back-to-school spirits by allowing ourselves to purchase some much-needed supplies for the upcoming business quarter. Below are five suggestions that every entrepreneur or businessperson should consider putting on his or her “back to school” list.

1. An Inspirational or Informative Book about Business

In the era of speedy, as-it-happens information, it may seem difficult to stomach the idea of making the time to read an entire book. Do yourself a favor and allow yourself the luxury of sitting down with a great new read—even if it’s only for half an hour each night. The book you choose can range from inspirational to practical; just make sure it resonates with you. Taking the time to read a whole book will help you internalize information or ideas that you would otherwise skim over or discard entirely.

2. A Blog Refresh

Updating your blog to show off more of your personality can lead to a shift in the public’s perception of your business, without the expense of an entire re-branding process.

Inspired to freshen up your image but don’t have the time or money for a site-wide overhaul? Then start with your blog! Updating your blog to show off more of your personality can lead to a shift in the public’s perception of your business, without the expense of an entire re-branding process. If you don’t blog frequently already, aim for one or two posts a week. They don’t have to be long; just be friendly, professional, and consistent.

3. A Successful Time Management System

It doesn’t matter how organized we are; most of us could benefit from better time management. If time management or productivity are issues that concern you, now is your chance to look into a new time management system. From free apps to CRM add-ons, time management and productivity systems are becoming more advanced and effective by the day. Read our blog post on technology-based productivity systems to learn more.

4. A Membership into a Club, Business Association, Training Course, or Meetup Group

Do you feel like you’re in a rut? Then pursue a business-related social activity. Not only will you meet people who may be interested in your product or service; you will also have valuable conversations, receive advice, and maybe even form new partnerships. Plus, you’ll feel more socially connected to your community—and a connected business is a happy and successful one.

5. A Gym Pass

Because it’s a new quarter, and you deserve to take care of your business and yourself!
