Hope you’ve been having a wonderful time celebrating the holidays with loved ones. What did you do all week? What next do you have planned? Every day is a blessing and a great opportunity to do and be much more. It’s great to always take out time to evaluate our lives and answer some important questions. What are you doing to make an impact in your community? How are you creating value? How are you spreading joy and putting a smile on peoples faces? How are you growing as a person and as a business? Do you have a business plan?
I’m the most fulfilled when I’m spending quality time with loved ones and enriching the lives of people around me either by sharing my knowledge, experiences or resources with them. My purpose is always to help people look and feel their best, and to help them create a successful business and live their best life.
With a new week and new year right around the corner I think it’s another great time to recap the week or year that’s ending, evaluate the high and low moments and plan for the next step in our life, especially in our business. In life, being spontaneous can sometimes be exciting and fun, but when it comes to business, it’s one of the worst things you can do. Having a plan is one of the most important and fundamental habits to have as an entrepreneur.
Today I’m here to share the tools and templates needed to plan and execute your business which can also be used to plan for other things in your life. Starting a business without a plan is like going on a road trip without knowing the direction. You may know your business goals just like the address of your destination, but you have no clue what direction to go, what turns to take, what to stop for, what to do or how long it will take you to get there etc. Now can you picture how messy, exhausted, stressed and broke you may become from having no plan?
