7. One Page Business Plan
Your Business Vision, Mission Statement, Objectives, Marketing Strategies, and Plans… OH MY! Can you think of anything more overwhelming to a business owner than the thought of putting all that down on paper? The One Page Business Plan, a workbook by Jim Horan, is an easy to understand and enjoyable — yes, I said enjoyable —book that will assist you as you create that solid foundation for your business. This workbook helped me create priorities to use and monitor daily. Business plans don’t have to be overly complex to work. When I first took my plan from my head and created it with this format, I realized that doing more of what I was doing wasn’t helping my business. So I changed my niche and focus from life coaching to womens business coach, and more recently to working with financial, insurance and investment advisors.
