Tips To Help Every Small Business Owner


As the owner of a small business, there is lots of advice that can be given about how to run your business or help it grow. At NJG, we understand that every business is different, but there is some universal advice that all small businesses can benefit from.

Appreciate the Moment

Make the choice to treat every day as its own new, unique opportunity to achieve something that benefits your business, such as planning for expansion, winning a new contract or spending time with your team to strengthen your dynamics and communication.

Team Trust

Don’t be afraid to delegate responsibilities to your team, whether in-house or outsourced. Take the steps to build a strong team that you can trust to take on different tasks and encourage them to work collaboratively as this improves productivity and morale.

Have a Vision

Outline your business’s values and vision as part of its brand identity and mission statement. Use these values as guidelines for decisions and be sure to incorporate social value and corporate social responsibility into this area, as they can have a positive impact on your reputation.

Social Heart & Business Head

While you should use your values in decision making, be sure to execute the running of your company with an objective approach and with business at the forefront of your mind. Enlist the help of an accountant and purchasing specialist to look after your taxes and overheads, amongst other things, as a matter of priority.


Investing in your team is investing in your business. Make sure you provide advancement and training opportunities to staff as well as proactively encouraging and praising them when they do work well.
