July OB Biz Tips: Start planning for Christmas Trade now...

Midway through the year means it's time to hit refresh on your business. It's a time to carve out some time to look AT your business with the Eagle Eye. The Eagle is known for flying high and having great perspective on life; looking at the bigger picture and seeing how to move forward. So embrace your inner Eagle and spend some time looking at what's working, what could be improved and where you could make changes for the greater good. 

It's also a great time to ask your team what needs changing; give them scope to be really honest about ways to be more efficient, present new ideas and what feedback they're getting from customers as well. 

It's also a great time to start planning for the second half of the year including Christmas Trade. Start a hit list of what categories you're missing in your business and start sourcing new brands to fulfil these needs.

Till next month, sending you happy and abundant trading!
