“A goal without a plan is just a wish” – “By failing to plan, you are planning to fail”
Are you a business owner finding yourself working 12-hour days in the business and wishing things could be different? Do you often think of great ideas that you wish to implement, but never get around to doing it? Well let me tell you, you are not alone.
There are business owners all around the world with the same problems.
It is not the end of the world. These issues can be overcome. Let me show you how one of my clients solved them and the effect it has had on his business.
I have a client operating a growing plumbing business. Before long the business had doubled in size. But, so did the problems, both internal and external. We took him out of the business for half a day, to think objectively about his business and to get out some of the ideas that he’d been storing up in his head. To my – and probably his – surprise, the creative juices were flowing that day.
What came out were not simply a catalogue of problems being faced by the business, but recognition of the stream of opportunities presenting themselves regularly and an understanding of the strategic re-organisation required for the business to increase profitability.
Our Strategic Planning day provided both a list of objectives and a timeline to deliver by. This resulted in renewed focus on what the business owner needed to do personally, and greater attention on his duties to achieve the objectives.
The result was growth in business in the areas wanted, less time working on individual jobs, development of new opportunities and less hours worked overall.
