Setting New Year’s Business Resolutions, For Female Entrepreneurs, Yes or No?
Should female entrepreneurs set New Year’s business resolutions? Absolutely!
New Year’s business resolutions can push you to accomplish more in your business.
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right,” Henry Ford once said. In other words, you often accomplish what you set your mind to and you measure up to the goals you set. That’s why New Year’s resolutions are so helpful.

Tips to Keep Your New Year’s Business Resolutions
New Year’s resolutions can be hard to keep. Female entrepreneurs are extremely busy and it’s all too easy to lose focus from your business resolutions partway through the year. Studies show that 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail. To keep your resolutions, here are a few tips that can help you.
Get Group Support
You should share your goals with a mentor like a business coach for women, peers, or loved ones to help keep yourself accountable. They can also help keep you motivated throughout the year.
Break it into Milestones
You should set goals that stretch you, however, setting a stretched goal can be difficult to achieve if you don’t break it down into smaller milestones. Set quarterly, monthly or even weekly goals that will help you achieve your New Year’s resolution.
You will likely struggle with motivation to keep your goals, especially if they are stretched goals, throughout the year. Determine ahead of time what the big picture is for why you set that goal, how it will help you, and how it will feel when you’ve accomplished it. You can also set rewards at different milestones to help you stay motivated along the way.
