A Business Plan Is an Endless Source of Motivation

October 17, 2014 | Roger and Susie Engelau

A business plan is one of the most powerful business tools on the planet and Verne Harnish’s One Page Strategic Business Plan (get a copy of it here, free) is hands-down the best at keeping it simple and easy-to-use.

I use this business plan method with all my clients and highly recommend it, no matter how big or small your business is.  It’s an amazing way to keep you focused, organized, and effective as you plan for the long-term success of your company.

Why?

This business plan format covers all the most critical aspects of business growth on a single page, and helps you see how each component has a direct impact on your bottom line.

And it starts with identifying your core values/purpose.

If you’re planning effectively, everything you do in business grows from a deeper sense of purpose.  Your core values are what you’re most passionate about as an entrepreneur, as a business leader, as a person.  They’re what get you out of bed in the morning.  Ideally, your business is a vehicle through which you can live out your core values.  When you approach business from this place grounded in who you are, you’ll find that you’ll have more motivation, energy, resiliency, and creativity for the journey ahead.

Of course, if you’re like many of my clients, you might not be totally sure what your values are.  That’s why I developed a FREE worksheet called “Find Your Why”.  This simple but powerful tool will help you unlock your core motivations so that you can gain true alignment in your business and reap lasting success.

One more thought: sometimes the day-to-day demands of your business interfere with your planning cycle.  If that sounds familiar, come to my one-day Growth Plan Workshop on September 26 and leave with…
