But Pammmm… I don’t even have a business plan!
Why the heck do I need a business growth plan, now?
Yes. Yes. My lovelies, I can hear the question train running full steam in your head. Let’s pull on the brakes a bit, ok?
Now let me ask you something…
Do you always want to be hustling hours for dollars?
Do you want to be making the same amount of money you’re making today, say, five years from now?
Better still, where do you see yourself in your niche or industry, five years from now?
Got the answers?
Now, who or rather, what do you think is gonna help you get there?
That’s right. There you go!
A business growth plan.
Ah-ha!! Nice to see that little light bulb come on!! 😉
What Does a Business Growth Plan Look Like
So, a business growth plan doesn’t have to be this complicated jargon-filled epic manuscript.
In fact, it can be as simple as a single sheet, outlining, your big-picture 12-month, 3-year and 5-year goals, each as simple bullet points.
Yes, growth plans go beyond the foundational planning of a business and focus on the growth and expansion, instead.
You can create a growth plan in your very first year of business. Mapping out your growth will give your actions, an intentional direction.
You’ll know exactly which opportunities to invest in and which ones to pass.
You’ll discover how easy it is to scale a business, even when you’re coaching people one-to-one.
You’ll learn to free up time while making more money with ease too.
A business growth plan is key if you want to position yourself as an expert in your niche.
Yes, a business growth plan does all of that and so much more.
How to Take Charge of Your Business Growth Plan
Now, how can you create one and take charge of it.
Because, sweetheart, the last thing you want to do is create a plan and not work it.
Here is how you can take charge of your plan. Like the plan itself, this isn’t complicated, either.
Set up a call or schedule a time with yourself and your team to create the plan.
Schedule a time to review the growth plan regularly. This can be every quarter or every month, depends on how aggressive you are about your growth, girl!
Every month, identify the key activities you’d be doing to implement the plan.
Examples of these growth boosting activities can include:
- Setting up systems
- Using Facebook ads to promote a new coaching package
- Starting to blog regularly
- Sending our newsletters to your clients (need a newsletter planner? hint hint!)
- Launching a group coaching program
- Launching an info product, like an eBook or eCourse
- Organizing an in-person retreat
- Writing a print book
Finally, and most importantly, get the help you need to make executing the plan as easy as making your Mom’s famous chocolate cake.
Growing a business is quite like raising a child, except for the all the poopy diaper changes. Oh wait, you will have poop to clean up on occasion. So yeah, it’s exactly like raising a child. Your biz is your baby!!
You totally need help if you want to stay sane while doing it.
Speaking of which, if you want to get the help YOU need, let’s chat.
