Hey you! Small business owner! You did it! You rock. Amazing things have happened in your business this year. You’ve had victories large and small. Remember to celebrate!

The end of the year is a great time to reflect on the year. Remind your employees (and yourself!) of the great accomplishments that happened this year.

Celebration can come in many forms. It could be as dramatic as an offsite holiday party, or as mellow as an email about your year-in-review.

Celebrating your victories is a fun way to improve motivation and productivity within your company. Certainly, this is important for your employees (NEVER forget that you can’t do this without them), but I also want you to celebrate yourself. As the owner, YOU are the driving force behind your company. Acknowledging victories improves your own morale, leading to improved business overall.

So, stop reading and start celebrating. You’ve earned it.
