Planning 101


Check-Step Your Business Plans This Back to School Season

Summertime comes to an end all too fast. Already, parents are bringing their children back to school shopping.  Planning for the new school year is truly underway!

Plan for a new business

Review your business plan on a regular basis.

Notebooks, calendars, pencils, pens, clothes and sneakers, are all being shopped for in preparation for the infamous First Day of School!  School stuff aside, have you taken a look at your own business calendar?  Reviewed your business goals?  Have you accomplished all that you have wanted to?

With that milestone not far away, it’s the perfect time to take a step back and do a quick review of your own business plans.   For some, back to school may mean the end of a fiscal year, but for most, there are still a few months left to address and accomplish any goals you may have identified earlier on in the year.   Not only are there fiscal responsibilities, but there are marketing plans to review and you also could take a quick look at your administrative and technology tasks to ensure you have all the personnel, supplies and software updates you need for the remainder of the year.

Sometimes we become so wrapped up in the day to day, we forget the big picture.  It’s very easy to do! The simple advice here is this:  no matter the milestone on the calendar, use it to trigger your own business success.  Maybe it’s Back to School, maybe it’s Labor Day, it could even be just an ‘every Sunday night thing to do!’  Use whatever works best for you and stick to it.  Your success is only as good as your commitment to it.  Regular check-steps to ensure you are reaching your own goals are what will make sure your business stands out above the rest!
