pencil on paperIs 2014 the year you’re going to get a plan? It’s estimated only 10% of real estate agents have a business plan. Yet, almost all would admit that businesses operate much better with a plan. And, we’re in business for ourselves, right?

Why Not Make 2014 the Year You Make a Great Plan…..

Whether you’ve never had a plan, or your plan sat on the shelf, all alone and orphaned through all of last year, why not decide to make 2014 the year you step up to a professional plan–a plan you use each day, week, month, and the whole year to

  • stay focused
  • stay on track
  • avoid wasting time
  • spend money wisely

Wouldn’t that make your professional life (and personal life) easier?

Help in Grabbing a Practical Plan–or Polishing your Planning Process

Each November and December, I feature business planning in my blogs (see Management in a Minute for planning tips for leadership). I want to give you information, and, most of all, motivate and inspire you to create a plan to serve as a practical road map to success in 2014.

Free Planning Documents for You, Too

In almost all of these blogs, I’ll be providing you planning tools, so you can have a proven process to follow. These are excerpted from my online ‘how to make a business plan’ programs, Beyond the Basics of Business Planning.

How to Get Ready to Plan

Right now, start thinking about what went right in your business this year, and what you want to change. I’ll be offering you specific suggestions in my complimentary business planning webinar (see below). And, if you had a plan for 2013, take a look at it. (Have you looked at it at all this year?)

I want 2014 to be a year of growth and opportunity for you–a fulfilling year both professionally and personally.  Let me help you get started on that opportunity Nov 21.
