“Would You Take a Year-Long
Trip Without a Plan?”
If the answer is “no”, why would you spend five, ten, or even twenty years in business without one?
Are you ready for 2011? Do you have a complete, clearly defined, written business plan?
Sadly most small business owners don’t. Instead of being focused and organized, most small business owners kind of “wing it” every day.
Instead of having a plan to follow, they combat the many demands and circumstances that appear each day.
If you are like most small business owners, you went into business because you wanted to be your own boss – the chart your own course – to have a little more “free time”.
But the brutal reality of most small business owner’s lives is they feel like a slave to the business. There is very little family time. There’s major stress, no real freedom and you feel like you have a “job” rather than a business.
Your day is consumed putting out “brush fires”.
If you can relate to that, I’ve got great news…
It doesn’t have to be that way!
If you would like to have a predictable, profitable, turn-key operation… one that allows you to do what you want, when you want, then be read this right now!
What’s the difference between highly successful business owners and those who aren’t?
Since starting my first business over a quarter of a century ago, spending over a decade coaching small business owners, and working with America’s top business trainers, I have found that highly successful business owners have something that others don’t…
They have a compelling, exciting, inspirational VISION for their life and for their business. That vision comes from taking time out to think and plan.
Do you have a written marketing plan and calendar? Do you know your cost of doing business? Do you have a 12 month financial forecast?
And most importantly… “What will having a business plan do for you?”
I’m glad you asked.
The fact is that those who have written goals and plans produce more than others. It’s a fact. Have you heard the story about the two lumberjacks?
The first lumberjack got to the forest before the sun came up, worked hard all day and left after the sun went down.
Meanwhile, the second lumberjack came in later and left the forest earlier, and cut down MORE trees than the first! How is that possible? He spent time sharpening his saw.
Highly successful business owners take the time to INVEST in their future. How much is your future worth? Imagine instead of feeling like a slave to your business, you are focused and organized. You know WHY you are doing what you are doing. You know WHAT to do, WHEN to do it, and HOW to do it.
There is no question. No guesswork. No confusion.
If your thinking gets a little fuzzy, you simply open your business planning binder and see what you are supposed to be doing.
“He who fails to plan… plans to fail”
How can you hit a target you can’t see? How can you go on a journey without a destination?
In Alice in Wonderland, Alice asked the cat in the tree which road she should take. “Where are you going?” he responded. “I don’t know” she said. “Then it doesn’t matter what road you take” he said.
The cat was right.
So, if you are ready to get more serious about your business and you want to be more focused and organized… you want to have more time with your family… and you want to be able to do “what you want, when you want” by building a turn-key business, then be sure to join us at…
The Howard Partridge GET FIT Business Planning Retreat with World Famous, American Legend Zig Ziglar!
January 28th and 29th Dallas, Texas
Marriott DFW North
Here’s what you will learn…
Day 1: People, Purpose and Profits! with Bryan Flanagan
Bryan is Ziglar’s top trainer. He has presented with Zig in front of tens of thousands of people and trains at some of America’s top institutions.
You will enjoy a full day immersed in “all things Ziglar” as Bryan leads us in understanding how to build stronger relationships with prospects, clients and employees by understanding their behavior styles.
You will learn the Ziglar 7-Step Goal Setting Formula that will help you actually achieve your goals in 2011 rather than your “resolutions” becoming just a faded wish.
Imagine getting the clarity you need in life to reach your dreams, having tools to communicate better with others and a written life goal plan to follow this year!
This will be a fun day. Myself, my coaches and my most successful members will be there to share our “secrets of success” to help you get all you want out of life.
Day 2: January 28th Build a PHENOMENAL Business Plan with Howard Partridge
Today, I will personally lead you through a number of exercises to help you develop your 12 month business plan. I have owned 7 small businesses all together, I have bought and sold companies, had partners, franchised, and developed training programs that have transformed small businesses worldwide.
You will leave this event with a real-world working business plan. This is not a dry, formal business plan that doesn’t really mean anything, but rather and plan that you can literally follow throughout the year.
We will begin by learning very powerful “creative thinking” processes that will help you craft the right vision for your company. You will learn a proven system for getting yourself organized so you can get more out of your day, and how to get your business organized so that you can begin the process of building a predictable, profitable, turn-key operation.
Next, we will tackle your financial plan. Your binder will have simple fill-in-the-blank forms that you can use to outline your income statement for the next 12 months. Each month you will have a simple model to follow. Remember that healthy profits are key to a phenomenal business.
Finally, I will walk you through my methods of putting together your marketing plan. You will leave with a written plan and a marketing calendar to follow.
Imagine how confident, organized and refreshed you will feel when you leave that event KNOWING what you need to do for 2011.
If you get “fuzzy thinking” during the year, just pop open your business planning binder to see what you need to be doing.
And finally, you will meet world famous, American legend, Zig Ziglar himself!
Zig Ziglar is probably the most quoted “motivational speaker” on the planet. He’s a living legend and he only speaks at either very large events where you can’t get close to him, or small private events that you wouldn’t know about.
Zig and his son Tom will have lunch with us. Get your picture taken, and a word of wisdom from the great motivator himself! I have had the great fortune of being in his presence in intimate settings on many occasions. Every time I came away with something that has made a huge difference in my life. The man is amazing. Don’t miss this opportunity of a lifetime.
