Do Your Own Self-EvaluationOnce a year most employees are asked to update their resumes and do self-evaluations in preparation for the annual ritual that is called the performance appraisal. Their reward? Hopefully a raise in pay and a chance to review their major accomplishments for the last year, celebrate their successes and to plan for their future.
As a CTMH business owner, you can perform your own self-evaluation by listing your major accomplishments for last year, your plans for the coming year, what new skills and training you'd like to pursue in 2011 and what you see yourself doing in the next 3 or 5 years. You should also gather all the thank you notes, awards, pictures, letters, emailed compliments, etc. you received last year and compile them into a brag book to use when you need a reminder of just how wonderful you really are.
This little exercise takes just a short time to complete, but can help you in immeasurable ways. It lets you pinpoint the things you are already doing well and the areas where you need some improvement. It's also a good time to give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back for a job well-done. One of the challenges of being self-employed is that you need to be a good boss to yourself and give yourself the same kudos you would give any employee who works for you.

I don't usually promote products that are not CTMH, but I just have to tell you about this product that is the BOMB! While I was at Karen's for LeaderShare, I used Bren Yule's and it is so easy to use for both cardstock and B&T's. It's carried at Micheal's, Joanne's, Hobby Lobby and many online retailers. Retails for $19.99 and you can use your 40% off coupon on it! If I am teaching a box or other project that requires scoring, I'll do it for my customers ahead of time. This product really is a time saver!
