Happy New Year, FoodTruckrs!

The start of a new year is a magnificent time to reflect on the joys you experienced in the last 365 days as well as everything you hope to achieve in the future. Entrepreneurs and small business owners commonly use this time to think critically about how they can start or grow their businesses over the next 12 months. If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at a fresh food truck business or you want to take your truck to the next level, now is the time to rev those engines!

So, what types of resolutions should you make? And how do you make resolutions that you’ll actually follow through on? Well, the key to getting your resolutions to stick is to make commitments that are:

2. Delegate, Delegate, Delegate

Entrepreneurs wear a lot of hats to get their businesses up and running. When you’re incredibly excited about your project and the work is new, it’s easy to maintain the pace. However, you can’t keep pushing yourself to your limits day after day without getting fatigued or sloppy.

Here’s something most small business owners have a tough time accepting: you don’t need to manage every single aspect of your business yourself. In 2014, learn to delegate. Make a list of all the tasks you complete on a weekly basis, along with the amount of time it takes you to complete them and a short description of the benefits of completing each one. Next, think about which tasks you could hire someone to do or ask one of your employees to complete, such as managing your Facebook page or ordering new paper products.

Now, we know, we know—why would you spend your truck’s hard-earned cash to hire someone to do something that you can do yourself? Well, it’s important to realize that you really can’t do everything on your own. Eventually, you’ll get burnt out and it won’t be long before your dream of owning a food truck has become a nightmare and a chore.

All small business owners struggle with this issue, but here’s something that most people don’t realize until after they’ve hired someone: once you’ve started assigning tasks to other people, you might just find that work is completed more efficiently because it’s done by someone who specializes in the field or by someone who has more time to commit to the job than you do. You’ll also be able to accomplish more big-picture work that leads to greater overall success for your business. Delegating is a win-win scenario and a smart, strategic decision that has big long-term benefits for both you and your food truck business.

Our hope is that this Throwback Thursday article will help you come up with the perfect New Year’s resolutions for your food truck business.

Nonetheless, make sure you do some serious reflecting during this time (and all year long as well). After all, reflection can lead to you figuring out what you are doing right and wrong at your mobile kitchen, which is why it’s so important to reflect all the time, not just once a year around New Year’s Eve.

Happy New Year, FoodTruckrs!
