Five-Minute Wins


Here are all of our five-minute wins for June, all of which have a light to moderate financial theme:

Five-Minute Reconciliation. Keeping up with bank transaction reconciliation in your bookkeeping software/spreadsheet can  slip down the list. Spend 5 minutes today reconciling!

Five-Minute Trivial Benefits. A little-known trick for Limited Companies.

Five-Minute Energy Check. One of the simplest ways to save money and help the planet as an individual and a business owner.

 
Five-Minute Shut Down. Perhaps a little simple for most of you, but a good habit to highlight nonetheless!
 

Five-Minute Expenses. Log those expenses on a regular basis to avoid any slipping through the net.

Resources & Replays

Pinterest with Lauren. Lauren’s session on the benefits and best practices when it comes to Pinterest has been very popular. Check it out if you haven’t already!

Pinterest pin templates – three Pinterest templates for you. Just click the link then look for the pencil icon to use them.

The Monthly Quack. We helped one member to get clarity on and see solutions to some current challenges.

Finance with Rachael. Financial planning and problem solving with Rachael Shaw.  Rachael’s month-end checklist, jargon-busting notes and the very impressive mini-wins spreadsheet to the bottom of the replay page, too.

What’s happening in the Pond in July?


The Monthly Quack. In July’s Quack, we’re sharing how far we’ve come. We’re halfway through the year, and whilst sometimes it might not feel like we’re making progress, WE ARE. Come and share where you were in January and where you are now, so we can cheer you on, into the second half of 2021. I’m really looking forward to this one!

Guest expert session. I’m over the moon that Jodie Hayward AKA The Systems Alchemist will be joining us for July’s guest expert training on Monday 26th July at 1000 BST. Jodie is a systems & automation specialist and she will be teaching us some tactics and showing us some tools to help save time, streamline our systems and more.


Looking ahead: Guest expert for August. 

I’m very excited to welcome my go-to tech guy (who also happens to be my not-so-little little brother, Chris), to the Pond for August. Rather than running a guest expert session, Chris will be resident in our Facebook community for the whole of August, answering questions on all of the following and more:

  • Business tech, networking, software, email, backups, security.
  • Digital marketing, SEO in particular, but also Facebook/Instagram Advertising and Google Analytics
  • Business generation, cold calling, cold emailing, prospecting for business.
