Prior to teaching an online internet business course, Jack Humphrey recently surveyed his class of almost 200 students from across the globe. He reported on the results a few days ago.
One of the things he asked his class is “Do you have a plan for your business?”
EIGHTY SIX percent said “No.”Â 14 percent said “Yes”.
I’m guessing that 12 percent might have stretched the truth a little bit. I’d be surprised if 2 percent had a plan, but that really isn’t the point.
Are you one of the 86 percent who doesn’t have a plan for your business?
A strategic, financial, marketing business growth plan?
If you are, spend some time this weekend putting one together. Don’t make your success an accident. Build a roadmap and then start following it.
Tempted to blow it off? Consider the likelihood that your competition is in the 14% who has a plan. Part of their plan is to put you out of business.
