Why is Business Planning Such a Challenge for Small Business Owners?
Business Planning is, in my estimation, the number one challenge the majority of small business owners have is developing a working plan for the growth and success of their businesses.
This is often because they are too busy working in the business instead of on it, and are distracted by the day-to-day tasks of running the business.
Unfortunately, this leaves most business owners in a challenging position, even if they are seeing growth in their business, because they don’t know how to plan for or manage that growth.
A Solid Plan Puts You on The Path to Achieving Short and Long Term Business Goals
Having a solid business plan gives the business owner perspective on what he/she wants to achieve in both the short term and long term. It defines the important action plans and strategies that need to be implemented in order to achieve the short and long term objectives the owner sets for the business.
Without objectives (goals) in place, there is nothing to measure the growth and success of the business by. Without these measures, a business owner cannot identify the various systems he/she needs to implement in order to increase efficiency, increase productivity, and increase their overall profits.
The Winning Combination: A Good Plan and A Great Business Coach
A good business plan does all of this, and having one developed with the assistance of a great business coach allows you to have your business viewed by another set of eyes and ears, and get the clarity and direction you need to see greater success and growth of your business long term.
