Take a moment and imagine…

Imagine working your ass off with your head down day after day and getting so frustrated that you are not:

  • Reaching your goals
  • Making the profits you’d hoped for
  • Having the freedom you dreamed of
  • Growing your business as planned
  • Feeling passionate about your work 
  • Bringing home the paycheck you counted on
  • Having time for your relationships that matter most

Hmm… perhaps you didn’t have to totally imagine that scenario because it hits a little too close to home. 

A lot of business owners are overworked, overwhelmed, and frustrated that running their business isn’t what they thought it’d be.

You know what could pave the way to mending all those frustrations and running a business you do enjoy working your ass off for?

Actually achieving your goals!

Because when you do achieve your goals, you can inevitably make higher profits, hire a team which creates more time and freedom to work on the high-value activities that grow your business, be less stressed which allows your passion to burn brighter, pay yourself more, and have more time for the people you love. 

Here’s the thing - if you’re setting goals but you’re not consistently achieving them, it’s likely because you don’t have a strategic plan to achieve them. How do you expect to get where you want to be without a plan? It’s like wandering around trying to get to your faraway destination without a map.

Do you ever go on a long road trip knowing your destination but without a plan on how you are going to get there? No! And you can’t expect to achieve your business goals without a plan on how to get there either. 

In this episode of Accidental Business Owner, I talk about creating a strategic plan for your business which is basically determining what actions you’re going to take to get your goals all the way to the finish line. I also walk you through how I use the Insight Feedback Loop Method to simplify the process of creating your strategic plan so you can confidently get started.
