As we edge closer to 2020, now is a great time for business owners to reflect on 2019 and set goals for the upcoming new year. 

Why not make 2020 the year your business excels through some simple resolutions focused on efficiency, time management and productivity?

Promote your business

For many small businesses, promotion is a great way to increase brand exposure and awareness, yet owners can often be guilty of putting it on the back burner whilst more seemingly pressing issues are at the forefront. 

However, in order for your business to attract more customers, promotion is a priority. Create and implement a marketing plan that you see through for the year and watch your business grow.

Our lease deals can also help with promotion, enabling you to get a brand-new, shiny car or van with your branding and contact details splashed across it!

What better way to market your business than presenting it to the thousands of motorists while on your commute to your next meeting?


Networking can be a great way to bounce ideas off new people and make valuable business contacts.

Whether it is an organised networking event or through the use of LinkedIn, networking can increase exposure to new customers and help you identify new business trends and best practices.

It’s important to remember that you only have seven seconds to make an impression. That could include your arrival at the car park – so make sure you’re driving a vehicle that matches the efficiency and premium brand of your business!

Prioritise work-life balance 

As a business owner, it can be hard to differentiate the work-life balance with hours often not falling between the standard 9-5. However, it is vital to schedule in time for yourself for both your mental and physical welfare.

Scheduling in time for exercise and socialising can provide big benefits in terms of improving your productivity when at work. Employee burnouts are on the rise so it has never been more important to ensure a work-life balance.

One way to improve this side of things is to ensure your employees are happy in their job. Are your work perks as good as other businesses, for instance? If not, you may cause undue stress and a lack of job fulfilment in your team.

Set realistic goals

It is important to not overwhelm yourself in 2020 with unrealistic objectives and expectations.

Although it is good practice to set goals, setting unrealistic targets can be counterproductive and demoralising. Smaller, more achievable milestones are a great way of boosting success and morale.

Lease a company car to save time & money

Leasing cars is a great way to drive your business forward. Leasing company cars for your employees can not only save time (and money!) relying on public transport, but also increase employee morale through incentivised company car schemes.

For smaller businesses with less disposable cash, leasing is a great option, with a relatively low upfront payment and regular monthly payments allowing you to drive a brand-new vehicle.

Commercial leasing through JVS takes all the hassle of owning a car away from you, leaving you more time to concentrate on the important things, like growing your business!

Avoid depreciation, maintenance and servicing costs and start your leasing journey with our friendly and experienced consultants.

All you need to do is choose the vehicle that suits you and take care of fuel and insurance; it really is as easy as that!
