Do you ever wonder whether all the time, love and effort you put into your business is worth it?
We all get to this place on our entrepreneurial journey. Sometimes, when we are lucky, it happens more than once.
Yes, I said LUCKY! Questioning your journey means that you are ready to look critically at your business. This is the time that creates opportunity for growth – growth for you and growth for your business.
I love to see this happen with each client and fellow entrepreneur, because it means she is about to make A LOT more money. If you are at the stage where you are looking at what you put INTO your business, versus what you get OUT of your business, you are behaving like a CEO and I commend you.
It is so easy to slip into the habit of exchanging time for money and never feeling fully satisfied with your businesses. I know – I spent plenty of time early on in my business exchanging time for money.
It wasn’t until I started behaving like a CEO that I finally created a business I love, and that takes care of me. And I want the same thing for you. A business plan is a great place to start.
I’m not talking about one of those monstrous 20-page business plans the bank requires to give you a loan. I’m talking about a simple one-page business plan that lays out:
Who you sell to
What you sell
How much you need to sell to make the income you desire, and
What you need to do to create those sales.
I have a super simple document I use that I update each year. I’m doing my 2014 plan right now. If you’d like a copy of my One Page Business Plan, head here and you can download it for free.
If you already have a plan in place, please take it out, look it over and make sure it’s still working for you. You deserve to have a business that takes care of YOU and an income you can plan for!
