Adapting to your surroundings is a key component in today’s marketplace. Put together a “think tank” that consists of key members of your team, and not just members of your management team. Remember, the point of all this is to get to know your client’s wants and needs; and who better to brain storm with than the people who are actually out there; your sales team. So pick one or two of them to join this session.
Listen to what obstacles they are facing, then create an action plan that can be implemented into your business. This may mean you need to dust off that old business plan of yours and update it. If you are pulling your business plan out of the archives, you most likely have not been adhering to it; which is not good at all. Your business plan should be a living, breathing document, not something sitting on the shelf. It should be the core of your company and plan of action that is used on a daily basis. Your plan should be consistently moving. It should be on your desktop.
One myth about business plans is to create it by answering this question – What makes you unique?
To be quite frank; who cares – everyone is unique in their own mind.
When Building a Great Company “Money is Last”
Any problem that money can solve is not a real problem. It’s the problems money cannot solve that are the real problems. I discovered long ago that passion and drive are the initial factors to look at. The next step would be to put your idea on paper.
The SBA recently came out with a statistic that business owners are six times more likely to be successful if they have a written business plan. Although a professionally written business plan is key, it isn’t everything. You need to first write the plan, develop financial statements and pro-formas with projections of the amount of money you can make with the business as well, and then develop the action plan.
The action plan is step-by-step instructions on how to implement your plan. Without the action plan you will be like the majority of entrepreneurs who fail in business. Number one, because there was no plan and number two because they didn’t act upon the plan. I have seen business owners spend $25,000 for a business plan that just sat on a shelf when it was complete. If you don’t take steps to write a good plan and develop the action plan around it you will be headed down the road of “closed for good”. And that certainly is not a goal you are trying to achieve.
