Business Planning 101

Have you wrote your 2017 business plan yet? If not, then you’re already behind for next year. That’s just the nature of the game in Real Estate. In our business, your next closing is 45-90 days out. That could mean a 3 month lag.

So what is so important about writing a business plan? Did you know only 3% of people actually write their goals down? That’s 3% of our population caring enough, working hard enough and willing their goals to reality. As the BOLD Law goes; what you focus on expands. Your business should a top focus of yours. Write your goals down. Make a plan. Map it out.

Our 2017 business plan looks something like this.

150 Closed Transactions | 75 Listings | 75 Buyers | Growing our team by 3-4 more people

We are serious about our business, our clients and each other’s dreams and aspirations. We even have created individual Vision Boards showcasing our dreams and desires for the year.

In September we all escaped to the mountains and spent 3 days writing out and planning our business for 2017. We broke it all the way down into weekly activity goals that will get us to where we want to be. So far we have made good progress on half of our business and the other half has experienced a set back. With our plan in hand though, we are able to look at our set backs, make minor adjustments and then plow forward. Our plan allows us to know where we are, where we want to be and what changes we are going to make to get there. That’s what a business plan is for. It’s business. We make a living when our business thrives and that’s what we are here to do, thrive.

So if you haven’t sat down and thought about what you want, do so now. Make a plan, set a goal and start doing what it takes to achieve that goal. You can do it.
