4 Key Steps to Starting a New Business

Every person that has an entrepreneurial spirit is faced with many challenges when starting a new business. Having a plan and keeping focus is important to success when growing your business. Using a digital planner can help you stay organized, meet deadlines, and explore your vision.

From finding an office space to recruiting talent, knowing your vision is important. Entrepreneurs have found success in using a digital planner to help them develop vision, achieve goals, and stay motivated.

  1. Start with a Vision Board

2021 iPad Digital Planner For GoodNotes - Vision BoardA vision board is a space where you can organize your thoughts, whether they are goals, answers to problems, marketing, or growth plans. A vision board should be a collection of all of your thoughts and ideas. This space should be the place you continue to revisit as you establish your steps.

We suggest that you plot out the next 12 months and place milestones throughout the year to help you measure your progress.

  1. Establish Goals

Most entrepreneurs fail because they establish unrealistic goals for themselves. Our program teaches you to pull goals from your vision board that you can accomplish in the next 12 weeks. Want to grow sales by 10% this year? Start by making a goal to increase accounts by x amount in the next 12 weeks. Don’t focus on the one-year plan, but focus on the goal you can reach in the next few weeks that will impact your year.

Having short term goals that you can reach will keep you and your team motivated and help show progress towards your long term goals that you can share with your partners.

  1. Know Your Ideal Week
