Marlene Powell - Every business needs a roadmap to success

Marlene Powell - Every business needs a roadmap to success

Only 2% of business owners have a written plan and even fewer stick to it.

In reality, failure to plan is a plan to fail. For many business owners, who are caught up in the day-to-day of their business, finding time to plan for your business can seem impossible. In addition, finding the time to reflect on what’s working and what isn’t can be extremely difficult.

But what if you could step out of your business one day every three months, and get laser focused on what you need to do to grow your business? One day to plan for success is a small price to pay for what you can get.

Invest in one day every 13 weeks and you can have a clear picture of where your business will be in 90 days’ time and a step-by-step plan to get you there.

So, when last did you take the time out to invest in working ON your business and if you have done so, are you on track to achieving your 90-day goals set?

Steps to take to achieve your 90 day plan

  • Create a 90-day plan

  • Take control and get organised

  • Learn proven profit strategies:

1. Map out your next 90 days

2. Meet up with peer-to-peer business owners

3. Have access to a business coach or mentor

4. Learn from the strategies implemented in your businesses

5. Widen your sphere of contacts by networking with other business owners

6. Hear valuable lessons from others in business

  • Have a clear focus on where your business will be after 90 days as well as a plan to get you there
