day 4: strategic action plan
Create Your Business Goals For The Future
So, to recapture what we have gone through in the last 3 weeks; you've spent time writing down important information about your business. You've identified where you are now as a result of this new financial year actions and where you want to take your business. You have also identified what has gone well, and what might be holding you back.
Now it is time for you to create some goals if you have not done so. This is really the best part of the exercise. You are actually going to turn your good work into something that will be a road map for you to follow and achieve those things you've been dreaming about. So here is how you do it.
Sit down in a quiet room - plan on spending at least an hour. Go through what have you written down. Do you see any themes, stuff you can group together? That is what you need to do.
Then take those groupings and see if they align with what you said you wanted for this new financial year. If they don't - you need to seriously consider doing away with them or modify them to fit where you said you wanted to go.
This time you've narrowed it down a bit. Now you need to take those groupings and turn them into goal statements. Do not create more than five goal statements, two or three is even better. Anything more than that just turns into something that will boggle your mind and cause you to put all your good work on the back burner - it will be way too overwhelming.
Not sure how to write a goal statement? Here are some examples:
* Find a product that provides passive income fro my business.
* Develop strategies win / win partnerships and promotion.
* Get more clients without increasing face-to-face billable time.
* Move into the new niche with my current products and services.
That should give you some ideas - get started. If you have any questions - please feel free to send me a message. I would love to hear from you.
