Whether your a seasoned professional or just starting your business journey, it's critical you know where you heading.
Quote - "If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail" Benjamin Franklin
When I started my business journey for the third time, I didn't expect the growth that I am experiencing now. One thing was for certain though. I knew and had a detailed plan/road map of where I wanted to go. I had and still have a clear long term vision of where my company is heading. So I started laying the foundation for future growth - 12mths, 2yrs, 5yrs, 10yrs. I use the analogy of building a house. Firstly you have an idea of what you want. You then choose a location & purchase a block of land. Then you choose the builder and they start the project (lay the concrete slab), foundation and so on...you get the picture.
I asked myself many questions along the way, however one question I ask daily is...
Is what I am doing moving me closer to my goal, vision?
* Building an asset/lifestyle business. A business that works without me
* Building a passive income. Getting paid when I'm on vacation, sleeping etc
* Am I doing what I love - my passion
* Am I doing my life's best work
Answering these questions regularly is crucial to whether you will sink or swim in business. It's your choice!
