    Coordinating Your Business & Family 

    Many times as an entrepreneur we have high hopes of starting & developing 1 or more successful businesses. In the process of building a new  business or working on the current one that you have, you may forget about family. Sometimes you may forget or don’t pay enough attention to how is this going to affect your family or the ones closet in your life.

    Starting & managing a business can take a lot out of you. Many things around the life and success of your business ventures or projects should start out with a strategic plan & support. Why?

    Because without strategically planning things can lead to disorganization, various problems in your company, problems with family, friends etc… If your entrepreneurial adventures have some affect on your family or close ones then create a plan; a strategic one at that.

    Let your family know that this is a business and things have to get done but there will be family time soon & stick to the plan! When you have a strategic plan to make time for both: business & family, you could possibly create & maintain a sense of balance which could possibly lead to success in both areas.

    Take into account those around you. Then you all can coordinate your schedules together. Take time out each week or month to have a meeting with them to discuss up coming events, plans etc…. Then decide how you all will work them out. Stick To The Plan!!

    Have these things written out on paper, on your computer, personal calendar etc… Post them where every one involved can see them or be a reminder to you. That way, you all will know what’s going on (or supposed to be) in the coming days or weeks. Then you won’t have any surprises (hopefully).

    In your plan you can leave some room for adjustments and problems but with your plan by your side you’ll see your way through a crisis.

    Try to get more assistance around the home. Schedule out personal time, family time, quiet time for you to reflect, not too much till you start slacking in your business. Slacking off will show, your customers & associates might notice & that’s bad for business. Put aside enough time to just relax & release then come back to business refreshed. Let your family, close ones or loved ones help you out in your business in small ways.

    A little strategic planning goes a long way, it can help you & benefit your business, your family & you in the long run.

    Looking Towards The Future: Managing Change In Your Organization 

    In many of your business ventures or projects learn how to manage change for growth & improvements. Many times growth doesn’t happen without change. The future of your business or projects depends on the changes or steps that you make today. The future is quickly approaching tomorrow and every day after that. You must learn how to respond to it quickly.

    Find out what in your organization works and doesn’t work for growth, process improvement, productivity, customer satisfaction etc….. You must always have a strategy and plan in place; a.k.a a strategic plan. It helps to keep you company organized and running smoothly.

    You must involve strategic planning for your companies future: Where are you all headed? What’s our next move? The way that you change a business unit to adapt to a shifting economy and markets is a matter of management style.

    How are you going to respond to changes in the business market that you can or can’t see coming today? What plan do you have in place to respond to changes if things don’t go as planned?

    You can bring the change about yourself or it can happen without you. Sometimes that can have negative effects or positive. It can come in ways that give you little choice about the who, what, when, where and how in change. Sometimes you shouldn’t fight against change. Learn to embrace it. It can be good for your organization. Sometimes the old saying can be true :”If it ain’t broke don’t fix it”, well…that all depends on the situation.

    The strategic planning process is all about where are you headed, your mission, objectives, analyzing your situation, your strategy formulation, implementation & control. This process applies more to the upper management level in your organization. Every step in your strategy must be taken into careful consideration before final plans are made. Strong leadership is essential in building a culture that can transform/ change those powerful ideas into reality.

    If you already have strategic plans in place for change; sometimes they can be improved to better support your company, those within your organization & decision making. You can get a better handle on market trends which is a way to take advantage of change, then convert risks into opportunities and be a step ahead of your competition.

    The Greener Side To Strategic Planning 

    There is much to be said about the way that companies operate today. Going green is a must for many and a good way to take your business for the better. Especially in a recession going green is the way to go for improvements that lead to success down the road.

    When clients look for a company to meet new & emerging needs, they need ways to distinguish your company from the others. If you are best at meeting their needs, its all in your strategic planning.

    It’s about the way that you present your products & services. Making your greener initiatives clearly visible to the customer can work best. Set your greener strategic plans into action & make them more visible through advertising, public relations, certifications, alliances etc….

    Prospective customers need trustworthy ways to distinguish your company from the crowd when determining if you are the best at meeting their new need.

    But how can it all come together without an improved

    strategic plan & implementation?

    When your company determines the new customer needs that you will serve, there is no substitute for good, structured strategic planning. The winning companies will succeed because they made good choices in their strategic planning.

    In the process of your strategic planning, try to focus on more greener initiatives. Going green can be a very useful strategy in today’s markets. Developing more greener strategic planning ahead of time can put you ahead of the competition. Your company’s response to new customer needs/ preferences can tell a lot about how your strategy works.

    Your company and those involved, should do your best at improving your green initiatives in your strategic planning. It can improve your chances of leading in your industry.

      You are absolutely right about going green being “a must for many and a good way to take your business for the better.” It is a concern for everyone on this planet to try to improve our processes while staying competive within industries.
      A good strategic plan is extremely important, but equally important is putting your strategy into ACTION. Implementing a good plan, reviewing the results, and being flexible in changing course if a strategy isn’t working will give your company an advantage over slower, less responsive companies.
      Keeping on top of the myriad of responsibilities can be made easier if you have the tools to help you succeed.

        Hi T.Welch,

        You’re right…Action is one of the biggest parts along with staying on course, sticking to the plan. You’ve got to make room for needed change. Thinking a “little greener” & implementing it has helped many companies internally & externally.
