As the director of a limited company, you are the driving power of your business. Your role is to manage the day-to-day running of your company and to submit the financial paperwork, but remember to take time out for yourself.

In order to successfully develop and further the business, it’s essential to invest in personal development, whether this may be through attending a course, a lecture or expanding your service based on a new skill acquired by yourself.

Keep ticking on social media

The easiest way to ensure this happens is to produce a brief calendar for the year which highlights the key events, there are countless calendars which are already available on the web.
