The holidays are right around the corner and you might not have had time to write your own Christmas List for yourself yet! These are some of the best gifts you can receive if you are a busy business owner trying to reach those end of the year goals, and start new ones for 2019.
1) Give the gift of Audible!
Knowledge is power. Reading has long been known to be one of the best ways to learn and grow. I can’t tell you the number of times someone has said to me that you really don’t need to get your MBA cause you can learn everything you need from books! Now I know there is huge value in getting your MBA especial from a reputable school, but not all of us have that luxury. And finding the time to dive into a good book seems to be something that is limited to vacation time, and if you are like me and try to read in the evenings, you end up passing out before you finish one page. This can be a problem when you are trying to earn your grass roots MBA! Audio books have become such a huge resource for me and the growth of my business! You can multitask your reading time into the craziness of your day to day schedule!
2) Full Focus Planner (Here)
This planner is AMAZING. For a lot of small business owners your phone becomes how you run your business and it also represents a lot of the chaos that comes with that reality. So getting away from your phone in order to create some clear cut goals and plans for your future is really healthy. This planner is more than just a template for creating and accomplishing goals. It comes with a built in structure and philosophy to help support you while you strive to reach the goals that you have set both personally and in your business. There are a ton of video resources for how to use this planner to maximize your experience!!
3) Movo Phone Vloging/Podcasting Kit (Here)
So blogging, vlogging, and podcasting have become so important for so many growing small businesses and now a days you have a high tech 4k video camera right in your pocket. Its incredible the capabilities that are built right into the phones that we have on us all the time. All we need is just a little bit of helpful equipment to put us over the top and of course just a little bit of courage to push RECORD! Movo is a great company for mics and camera mounts for any level! And they have some awesome kits to turn your phone into that perfect vlogging tool!
4) Wire Free In Ear Headphones
What better way to multi task than with wire free in ears! And owning a small business is all about multi tasking. Listing to your audible account, handling phone calls, all while keeping your hands free to edit that vlog video or respond to those emails or IG messages. Here is an article from Tech Radar with great inside on the best wire free head phones on the market!! Full range of pricing and fit options! You really cant go wrong with any of these!
5) Power Packs
Every entrepreneur or small business owner needs this! As I said before we tend to run our whole business operations on our phones and because of that we have a tendency to blow through our phone batteries! This company makes the best battery power packs ever! They can recharger your phone 3-5 times over depending on the model you get and they are pretty well priced! With this in your business tool belt you never have to worry about where you might be when your phone starts to die. You just simply grab your Anker power pack and keep rockin and rollin!
So if you are looking for that perfect gift for that special business owner or entrepreneur in your life these would make some great options!!
