    2. financial
    3. technology & production
    4. marketability & competition
    5. growth

    There are so many things that you can do to improve these areas. Take a look at your risks, how to manage them and your ability to to manage them to improve your business. Analyze your entrepreneurial capabilities. Analyzing that is a big part of your risk management. Learn how to manage your business money or seek help.

Addressing a few of the above issues can significantly reduce the level of risk in your small business.

    Time Is Of The Essence: Manage It Wisely 

    There is a lot that can be said about the way that you do things in addition to why and when they get done. What does & doesn’t get done in relation to performance & time management, can be critical in business. Performance, productivity & time management go hand in hand, which equates to “time is of the essence”. Your performance stems from your motivation, productivity, time management and behavior. Many times performance n’ time management determine how well your operations are run.

    In dealing with time management; you and/or your team, should strategically plan your time and activities throughout your organization. It’s not just what you’re doing for today. It’s also for the days, weeks and months ahead.

    You do have a strategic plan don’t you?

    Strategic planning & implementation helps to get the job done, improve your performance, your productivity and maintain a better business. Proper performance is imperative in relation to organizational outcomes and success.

    Depending on how you define effective performance; your job or business performance can be a poorly defined term. Your performance and your business performance are two different variables. What you do with your time & how you manage it, can be important towards what you want to achieve. It has a lot to do with how well you strategically plan your activities. What you do within an organization leads to better business performance. Sometimes how well you or your team strategically plan and implement your activities, determines what will and won’t get done and your level of success. Which can lead to the failure or success of a business or project.

    Performance management isn’t just for employees; it’s for managers, supervisors, ceo’s, entrepreneurs etc… You need to have yourself in check before you correct others. Many times your performance stems from your behavior & motivation. Which leads to proper or improper performance and time management of your daily activities which determines your outcomes/ results.

    Outcomes are the results of an individual’s performance & influences. There are more factors that determine outcomes than just behaviors and actions. Performance is more than the observable actions of an individual. It can consist of mental productions such as answers or decisions.

    First of all, you need to lay out a strategic plan for the daily,weekly or monthly activities. You can plan this with your team, co-workers or an outside strategy consultant.

    Once you have your plans laid out, then there’s the implementation. Within an organization there needs to be effective collaboration to help proceed with effective implementation of your set strategic plans. If you are working by yourself then you have to hold yourself accountable or seek a partner for support. If not, your plans may fall through with little to nothing getting accomplished which leads to little to no success in your business or projects.

    If a business or project succeeds or fails, it can be determined by a lot of factors. But your performance and time management plays a big part in the outcomes. But how effective is your performance? First you have performance and second effectiveness; effectiveness of that performance.

    Effectiveness is the ratio of outputs to inputs- those inputs being effort, monetary costs, resources, etc… You get what you put in. Your performance should be goal relevant, kept on schedule and directed towards overall business or project goals.~Clerical Business Solutions

    Wise Entrepreneurs Have A Business Plan 

    Starting on a business plan can seem like a daunting task and then you have to get the motivation to get started. But once you get goingbusiness you’ll find that writing the plan is not as tough as it seems. You need to have a plan to give you direction and a firm foundation to start on.

    It’s like driving a car; you need directions in order to get to where you want to go, or you could get lost.

    For a wise entrepreneur, having a business plan is one major step in the right direction. The planning process is the most important, then you have the actual implementation that you have to stick to in order to make it work.

    You prioritize, set your goals, create a mission statement & set implementation steps that’s all in strategic planning. Ask yourself “Where do I see me in five yrs?”

    Business planning is usually conducted when starting a new organization or a new major venture, for example, new product, service or program. Essentially, a business plan is a combination of a marketing plan, strategic plan, operational/ management plan and a financial plan.

    You need to develop a strategy for your business plan. While it may be easy to select a smart-sounding strategy for your plan, I recommend you give a lot of thought to the strategy that will set the course for your business. 

    Sitting down looking at a blank computer screen as you prepare to start your business plan can be daunting. You may want to look at an alternative that can help to make the process a bit easier. Look into hiring a professional such as a strategic business planning service to assist you in your business planning needs.

    A professional business consultant can help you to create a business plan suited for your needs, but you still have to be prepared to think through your business, while working with a consultant and understand the underlying concepts in your business idea.

    The best way to show bankers, venture capitalists, and angel investors that you are worthy of financial support is to show them a great business plan. Make sure that your plan is clear, focused and realistic. Then show them that you have the tools, talent and team to make it happen.

    Your business plan is like your calling card, it will get you in the door where you’ll have to convince investors and loan officers that you can put your plan into action.

    That’s when crisis management comes into play. Crisis management is an important part of managing a business. No business is immune to a crisis. A crisis may hit an organization in the shape of public relations, terrorist attack, industrial accidents, product recall, natural calamity,etc…. Crisis management is closely linked to public relations where a company’s image and pride are at stake.

    The Grim Reality Of A Recession 

    Well we’ve  heard it before, a recession is coming, a recession is coming. Sometime around Dec 2008 Americans were told that they had been in a 200273101-001recession for a full year. It’s a trying and unsettling time for many. There is fear, panic, bankruptcy, Chapter 11, bad credit, layoffs etc…

    If you look left, right, up or down, you’ll hear and see doom and gloom news about the state of the global economy and how bad it is. This bad economy has gripped both businesses and consumers with the fear of their finances, bank accounts, stocks etc… It’s just a financial frenzy.

    Stores and businesses are closing left and right, you would think that some of them would be able to hang in there considering that many of them are huge retailers. People are losing jobs left & right. Where does it all end?

    Well many companies big & small have it bad these days. Are you one of those dealing with the same issues? Issues of : you may have to consider closing up shop, laying off employees, filing for bankruptcy or drastically reducing your prices?

    Times like these can make you indecisive about what to do and where to go. You don’t know if you should close your business for good or just hang in there. That’s why you need a plan, a strategic business plan at that. Stategic planning is so important in times like these because having a strategy is the way to go.

    In a recession you don’t have the luxury of making mistakes. When your budgets are tight, it’s your job to calm your worried customers and capture the few viable prospects that you can get. Also make the most of the people and technology that you already have.  This where strategic plans come in handy.

    Optimize your current technology and utilize equipment to it’s fullest potential. This isn’t the time to experiment with new technology, unless you have the means to do so.

    There no better time like the present for many companies to restructure, revamp and revitalize just to stay afloat or make improvements.  

    Strategic plans help you to make it through the tough times and good times. When you first start up your business you need a business plan and in addition to that you need a strategic plan as you grow your business. It’s a plan for the daily operation of your business. It helps you to forecast where you are going, where you want to go, how to get there and if you got there.

    Are you one of the many business owners who may have never given any thought to strategic planning? Even if you thought about it but felt like it wasn’t needed, contrary to what you may think it is very much needed in every business. With all of this fear, dread and panic going around, I don’t think that you want to take part in that.

    Even I have a strategic plan because I refuse to let this recession bring me down or take away my business. Yes, it is true that in some situations many businesses have no other way to stay in business. But for others you can consider times like these just a temporary setback. With a recession or slow economy, you just can’t sit back and do nothing, if you want to stay in business.

    A strategic plan encompases your marketing strategies, creative thinking, process, teamwork and flexibility.  While your competition is sitting back doing nothing then when the economy gets better you will be ahead of them. Call it what it is, competitive and  this business world is competitive, a never ending rat race. When it’s all said and done and the economy gets better you will out shine the rest because you have your stuff together.

    You have an action plan. And when the going gets tough the tough get going. So make a move and develop your strategic plan today!
