The weather has turned colder… and this is the time of year that people gather firewood… to warm their stoves and fireplaces for the winter months. This is quite a process… that takes thoughtful planning. First… you have to find the right tree. Hardwoods are best… If the tree has already fallen, that is great. Otherwise… you may have to cut it down… and that requires the right tools and planning for safety. Then… you will need to cut sections of the tree trunk and split into firewood. Remember… to consider the length of your fireplace or stove… so the logs fit. You will need kindling to get the fire started. You will need stacked firewood and a kindling box inside… plus covered storage outside to keep your wood dry. With the right planning… you can enjoy a cozy, warm fire for cold winter days. This same approach to strategy and planning applies to your business.
Last week, we kicked off a new video series … for 2018 Business Strategy and Planning. We are also launching a Business Plan SURGE… starting November 1st. We will provide daily activities… to make it easier for you to develop your strategy and complete your business plan.
In the first episode… we challenged you to go back a couple of years… and look at the math for your business …including units…sales volume… and gross commission income for Buyers, Sellers, Referrals and… TeamBuilder Income. We asked you to look at the sources of your business and then challenged you with a series of questions to encourage you to think strategically.
Now let’s think about your goals and your strategy for 2018… We have included a link to our Business Plan Scorecard. This scorecard provides a set of questions and rating scores for key areas of your business. Take the challenge… and see how you would score today!… You may find that you have some “opportunities”… to make improvements… So, let’s begin with the end in mind… and define what success should look like for You… Imagine you are in December of 2018… and looking back at the year… What should your Business Plan Scorecard results be then?
Now you know what you need to work on… So how do you get there?… That is what we will be covering in our Business Plan SURGE. Please take time to actively participate in this 4-day program that can help take your business to a higher level.
We are competing in a new environment… where change is happening faster. And change presents opportunities! You can be the next incredible success story! Successful people have one thing in common… They all have a business strategy and they all do a great job of executing their business plan.
This weekend, I will be in the woods getting started on my firewood for the winter. I have my strategy and plan prepared – so now I just need to go execute!
Remember … every day… in every way … YOU can get better and better!
