    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.

    Regain Your Passion For Business 

    Remember the good old days. Yeah, you know the ones, the days when you were first starting out in business and you were feeling great for even starting a business. You had that twinkle in your eye. Yeah, I know that starting out in business can be hectic but thrilling at the same time. As you travel down memory lane, you think of how great business will be once you get everything under control. Just imagine, you’ll have clients here, clients there, clients everywhere and gain business here, business there, business everywhere.

    That’s right you’ll be your own boss and things will be great ! Your business will be booming straight to the top ! You’ll be climbing the ladder of success. As you reminisce & have thoughts of your new business venture, your dreams, hopes & visions become a reality.

    STOP ! Now, Fast Forward To The Present.

    I hate to interrupt your little trip down memory lane but face it you’ve lost it, you know, you lost your passion for business. Where did it go ? It went somewhere between being excited about starting a business & you being stuck dealing with various administrative tasks that have to get done in order to keep your business in business. You are stuck doing things for your business that you hate instead of being out in the business market place, networking and growing your business.

    Don’t just leave your passion at the door bring it in with you. Where did you lose the passion for business, your get up & go ? Maybe just maybe you lost it when you decided that you could handle it all yourself. Instead of getting the help that you oh so desperately need, you try to do it all yourself. You may say I can handle it !                 Oh really, can you ?

    Stop the non-sense & face reality, there are going to be times in business when you’ll need help. That time is now and you know it.  As a business owner or professional don’t be afraid to look for & ask for help. Seek & ye shall find. So when you’re stuck doing the things that you hate, you tend to lose your passion for it all.

    I know that you want to get out and focus on other things that will help your business grow. But you can’t because you are stuck doing various, monotonous administrative tasks & trying to be Mr. or Mrs. “I Can Do It All, Myself”. 

    Change your way of thinking so you can bring back that good old feeling again. Bring back the passion that you once had for business. Find a new outlet for those tedious, monotonous tasks that you hate and relieve some stress. A wise outlet for those dreaded tasks is to outsource.

    Contact ME, so that you & I can help to put some passion back into your business. Outsource those tedious, monotonous tasks today ! Now you can be excited about what you do all over again.

    A Strategic Solution for Business: Outsourcing 

    The current economy is forcing businesses to cut costs and to stay competitive. That can be a great burden and pain for business, having to focus on staying in business or ahead of the competition then you have to stay worried about and tackle your day-to-day business operations & tasks.

    You may be looking for a way to cut costs and run your business more efficiently.  You or your team members may feel that you will never catch up on the things that you have to do because there is so much on your plate already.

    For many entrepreneurs, who may be independent or have team members, they don’t want to wrestle with their day-to-day business operations and administrative tasks. Sometimes they just simply need a helping hand, like an extension to their business or projects.

    Outsourcing certain business operations makes good business sense. You don’t outsource everything, just your non-core functions. You don’t need to have employees or a large company to outsource some of your business tasks. By outsourcing some of your day-to-day tasks can free your mind and help you to focus more on other ideas to generate money. Competition can make doing business an ongoing battle & you really need support by your side so you can tackle your competition.

    As a business owner or professional, you don’t need distractions. A challenge that some companies face is finding the right resources/ support that fit their needs. That’s when you and/ or your team need to figure out what you really need assistance with. Find out what can help to reduce or ease your workload. Decide on the things that need to be done but don’t require too much of your attention, the things that you can let someone else do so you can move on to another project or take a much needed vacation. Once you know that, then delegate & outsource.

    You should pay attention to what you do as a business and how you can do it better, if you had extra support that you could outsource to. Sometimes in business you may feel that you can do it all, then there are times when you need outside help.


    When your team members or employees spend time on things that don’t directly add value to your customers solutions, you can save a lot on business costs by outsourcing. A beneficial resource to outsource to is a Virtual Assistant and seek advice from a project/ strategy consultant. A Virtual Assistant and/ or business strategy consultant can provide the help that you are searching for. You don’t have to have employees or a large company to obtain the services of a Virtual Assistant or for most business strategy/ project consultants.

    Virtual Assistants are business owners who have experience in all types of business support and management services. By outsourcing to a Virtual Assistant you don’t gain an employee, you gain a partner in business who wants to alleviate some of your burden and help you to succeed in business.

    A Virtual Assistant can help you in many ways: working with your vendors, typing, grant writing, making your phone calls, administrative tasks, setting appointments for you, handling your emails, database management, client management, routine paperwork, assisting you with project management, bookeeping etc… The ways that a Virtual Assistant can help you are endless.

    A Business Strategy Consultant can assist you by helping your organization improve their performance,strategy/ decision-making, business management, M.O.S.T/ S.W.O.T analysis, strategic planning, business planning etc…. primarily through strategy development & implementation through the analysis of existing business problems and development of plans for improvement & maintenance.

    Outsourcing has proven to reduce capital costs, increase efficiency, speed up time-to-market, reduce labor costs and enable core business focus. Outsourcing has helped companies find newer and better ways to do things and add value to their products or services. Once you have worked with a Virtual Assistant and/ or a Business Strategy Consultant, you will see the added value to your business or projects and the great benefits.

      well if you are planning to have a virtual assistant instead to have the employees you must think also of what will be the outcome of the result and the effects by not having an employee..

        Hi Outsourceit,

        You can have outsourcing in addition to your employees. You must always think of the end result when doing any type of business transaction. Some independent/ solo-professionals work well on their own if they choose to outsource and not have employees. It all depends on what’s best for each individual or business.

      Outsourcing has been a major element to success for various companies overseas. It is a justifiable fact that internationally established business institutions markets employee leasing to various parts of the world.

        Hi Employee,

        Outsourcing has been a great benefit to many companies over the years. But onshore outsourcing can benefit a business even more. But it seems as though you may be refering to staffing agencies. With staffing agencies the situation is very different than working with a Virtual Assistant firm by way of onshore outsourcing.

        Many Virtual Assistants also work with clients all over the world. Working with a VA~Virtual Assistant, the boundaries are limitless.

      These are additional reasons why Outsourcing is good for your business/organization:

      1. Achieve more with less. Everyone in business is under constant pressure to produce ever-increasing volumes of work to generate more revenue using existing staff. With outsourcing, you can utilize your existing staff to manage outsourced projects. Your staff manages the outsourced team, thus improving the output of each staff member.

      2. Real-time access to skilled people. Business is not a steady, constant stream. You can never fully predict what situation the next day, week or month will force upon you. Outsourcing provides a certain level of scalability to help solve the enviable situation of significant growth.

      3. Focus on your core competencies. When your business grows, it does so because you successfully deliver a product the market demands.

      4. Flexibility when negotiating contracts. Pricing flexibility allows you to be much more creative in managing your budget when you can’t afford higher-priced staff. In addition to each staff member’s salary, there is the cost of taxes, health insurance, liability insurance, computers, cubicles and much more, depending on the perks you offer.

      5. Higher value per person. Maintaining the proper staff levels to meet the needs of your business is a difficult art to master. Outsourcing gives you flexibility when determining appropriate staff levels. You can hire a core team capable of meeting the demands of your business 80 percent of the time.

      6. Educated people with deep skill sets. Clearly language and cultural barriers exist. Just resist the urge to speak with increasing volume, and relax.

      7. Getting started is easy. If outsourcing sounds even remotely interesting to you, I suggest you take appropriate action. Notice I didn’t simply say “take action.” Getting started with outsourcing is as easy as finding a vendor and signing a contract.

        Hi Reyna,

        You have made some great and valid points about outsourcing. Many people are not quite sure about taking on such an investment, such as venturing into outsourcing. In addition to your points they can see that. The ROI in onshore outsourcing is very good.

        Depending on a persons needs, outsourcing can be a great benefit to their business or projects. Outsourcing & business consulting is a key business strategy, a winning combination which helps to strengthen an organization.

        With outsourcing a business or professional doesn’t lose control, they gain better control of their business or projects.
