Today, I am very excited to have guest blogger, Danielle Ralston from The Minion Queen come on board to chat with us about planning! In order to accomplish successful business planning, we need to go 5 different things. Keep reading to find out what those are!
The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to set new goals for your business. If you truly want to achieve the business goals you’re setting for 2018, the best way to do is to make sure you have a strategic plan. Successful business planning creates a roadmap for achieving your goals but is a poorly utilized tool for business owners and operating without a plan often leads to lack of focus and discipline.
PROPER PLANNING IS ESSENTIAL TO ACHIEVE YOUR GREATEST POTENTIAL. HERE ARE 7 WAYS PLANNING WILL STRENGTHEN YOUR OVERALL BUSINESS SUCCESS AND IMPROVE YOUR ORGANIZATIONS’ CHANCES OF BEING TRULY SUCCESSFUL.
1) You will have a written plan. Without a plan, it is all merely a dream. It doesn’t have to be a book, but you need a few pages outlining specific objectives, strategies, sales and marketing and time management. Writing it all down is a crucial first step.
The Minion Queens, Divide and Conquer Planning System’s goal is to guide you through the journey of discovering the jewels to your crown and to brighten the shimmer of your online fairy dust! In other words, this planning system includes everything you need to organize your year, months, weeks, and days. You can pick and choose what works best for you! Print as little or as much as you need to fit your style, or print it all to learn the organization style that works best for you!
2) Don’t marry your plan! Adjust, confront and conquer, the Minion Queen way! If you’re anything like me my plan changes often. I needed an organized place to store my thoughts and goals that weren’t spread all over the place, so I can change or add things when needed! Check out my planning system here!
3) Reinvent your business. Separate yourself from other businesses and create a new competitive advantage. Having a plan will allow you to focus and create your super service or product that will innovate the way you do business.
Above all, have fun. Being an entrepreneur is your choice, so make it work. It can be done! You can survive, emerge and succeed if you follow the right plan.
4) Add some inspiration. What inspires you? Put it in your plan. It gives you some positive motivation when you look back and helps you remember why you are doing what you are doing!
5) Get specific. Don’t be afraid to get very specific when you are writing your plan for 2018. Make sure to do a brain dump and include a list your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. This analysis is a wonderful way for developing a strategic plan of action for your business.
The Divide & Conquer Planning System is the Royal Strategy for your business success. Among the pages, you will find an entire system dedicated to everything you need to organize your days, weeks, months, and year.
