Is Your Business Plan Secure for This Year?
We are well into the new year and if you are reading this right now and thinking that you have missed the boat on creating a business plan for the new year, we have news for you… it’s not too late!
While it is most beneficial to start the year off strong with a solid plan in place, if you don’t have it in your hands yet, don’t despair. It is never too late to STOP, analyze your business and make the necessary adjustments where needed. What’s keeping you from getting your 2020 business plan done? Don’t let excuses get in the way of your success!
Here are three things you can do NOW to get you on your way to securing your business plan for 2020:
1. SCHEDULE an appointment to work ON your business plan.
If you currently have a business coach, schedule your appointment TODAY to meet with them and go over your objectives for the year. If you do not yet have a coach, contact us for a free strategy session. Nobody can do everything alone, and even the best of the best have coaches who come alongside them to fine tune their skills and push them to the next level.
2. REVIEW the 8 Facets of your business.
Review what’s working and not working. Go over your strengths, weaknesses, and action steps you must take in the new year to achieve your goals. This process does not take as much time as you might think, when you have an experienced coach working with you on this process. Without making a year-long coaching commitment to working together, we can customize a special program to work with you JUST on your business plan. Discuss all eight facets of your business, which include:
- Products & Services
- Customer Retention
- Team Growth & Development
- Sales Systems
- Technology & Equipment
3. TAKE ACTION to document EVERY goal and action step with “achieve by” dates and decide who will support you on the execution of each, then get ON with the work.
Schedule a review of your business in 90 days and make adjustments as needed. To assist you more with this process, we encourage you to pick up a copy of our Snapshot Business Planning book or purchase the audio version here. While doing it yourself is an option for some highly self-motivated individuals, we strongly suggest hiring a coach who can walk you through the process quickly and efficiently.
As business leaders and entrepreneurs, YOU are the CEO of your company. Step away from working IN your business so you can work ON your business. Even if 2019 got away from you and you did not have the opportunity to plan for 2020, there is time to take the reins back, make a plan, and point your business in the direction you want it to go. It starts with knowing what you REALLY want, making a decision, committing to it, and then acting upon it. Wishing you a magnificent 2020!
