Make a New Plan, Stan

Make a New Plan, Stan

By: Ross Paterson

I got to share Xtra Mile insights with 50 Veterans in Business members at lunch yesterday. I was teaching about the basics of small business planning. Check out these statistics from a 2010 study on planning in the SMB community.

  1. Planning ALWAYS improves performance.

  2. Companies that plan have 30% faster growth.

  3. 71% of the fastest-growing companies have plans…in writing.

If you have hopes, dreams, ambitions to grow your small business to the next level in 2020, but you don’t have a plan in writing, you are suffering from what we call ‘reality distortion‘. Grinding it out for another 12 months will not lead to the breakthroughs you desire. You have got to make some changes, or everything will be the same when you get to 2021.

Don’t be overwhelmed. Small business planning does not require a Harvard MBA or 30-page market analysis. We have developed a simple, effective, small business planning process that ends with a 2-page business plan. For a small investment of time and money, we can help you create clarity, develop priorities, and execute a plan of action that will get you and your team performing on the next level. 

If you would like to have more focus and better results, coupled with less stress and frustration, check out these opportunities in February and March. We are so confident of the outcomes we offer a 100% money-back guarantee.
