Do You Have a Plan to Reach Your Goals for Your Business?

When you go on a vacation (assuming you can remember the last one), are you the type that plans every last minute, or are you the type that just goes without a plan, and what happens happens?

Thomas Edison had a great quote that went like this … “Vision without execution is just a hallucination.”

For the last several weeks, we have been talking about strategy, and I absolutely believe that you must have a strategic plan even as a small business.

At the same time, if you cannot execute that strategy, then it is not worth the paper (real or digital) that it is written on.

In today’s episode, I break down the four stages of execution planning that I work with clients to build once they have their strategy laid out.

Stealing a line from Goldilocks, it is not too hot and not too cold … or in this case, it has just the “right” level of detail to ensure that you and your team know what is ahead, yet not so rigid that you cannot adapt and evaluate new opportunities.

Let’s talk about small business execution planning for a few minutes. Then, if you have questions after listening to today’s episode, I invite you to join us in the Building to Scale community today.
