Business faced many challenges in 2020 – but as Australians adjust to the new COVID-normal way of life, things are starting to look up.
For small business owners eager to set themselves up for success, here are some ways to prepare for a productive and prosperous year ahead.
Rebuild or rethink
If you have had to reduce your operating capacity to adhere to lockdown restrictions, now is the time to fill in the gaps and start rebuilding your business.
This might include increasing your inventory and upping your marketing, and even hiring extra staff to handle greater demand.
Or, perhaps you might be rethinking your business model and making some business improvements. In some cases, you might find that your customer needs have changed, so it’s important to consider your options.
Get your finances in order
With any major business change, it’s important to get your finances in order – and to ensure that you have the funds to cover any unexpected expenses.
If your cash reserves are running a little low, you might benefit from a line of credit that you can access when you need it.
And, depending on your circumstances, you could be eligible for a business loan to help you achieve your goals.

Whatever your plans, it’s a good idea to seek expert advice before making any big decisions.
