the plan for profit

With the turn of the year our business expectations come into focus and most reflect on what has gone before … usually for me it’s when I’m putting together a fresh pot of tea, sitting down with friends … what about you?

We have a plan (of course we do) and that plan may not be a lot different to last year although, at this time and with the benefits of hindsight, like you I tend to become a little more critical. I’m adding to this, taking away from that, building more actions and reference points to the existing plan to help guide me forward.

All these actions set out to make me busier, to be more profitable!

How did your three words guide work for you last year? Do you need to revise the short cut to your ‘key action’ reminders? Again, this proves more work for us …keeping us busy.

It’s easy to feel overrun sometimes with the must do’s, the add-ons, his/her opinion etc., all of those critical elements we feel we need to encompass in the plan, the bigger picture.

It is of course important to simply begin the journey in the first place.

Take the business plan you are working with, assess and consider really what needs doing and understand that some, though not everything may be accomplished today. Some of these small actions we implement will hugely impact the forward planning and ultimately the results so take just a little time … small steps.

More importantly is, as a business owner, we have the willingness to take those small steps of change, to improve, one step at a time.

I love the coast and in particular, the area in which I live, the North East of England. It's an uncomplicated life, for the past twelve years I've been away from the 'big smoke' ... and the decision to relocate my business to the North has been the best move of my career. So far. I am a writer and have a lifetime of experience in publishing and personal development. I now consider myself a specialist in helping my clients with memoirs - that could entail a biography, or simply bringing diary pages to life. I tend not to advertise my business, word of mouth has always been kind so it's no surprise that I do spend a couple of days per week networking. Peer collaboration can be very rewarding. Therefore, if you'd like to join me fortnightly for Wednesday ZOOM or either Tuesday or Thursday for (in-person) morning coffee, please get in touch. I'd love to meet you and perhaps help in any way possible. Thank you for stopping by the website. engage, develop, grow ... with Go!
