Welcome to part 2 of the 5-step strategy to plan for independent business success in the next 12 months.in this series, I walk you through an effective process you can use to plan for the best year you've ever had in your independent consulting business.
Last week, we took a deep dive into step one, assessing the past year of your business to create a clear baseline for your consulting business.
By conducting this assessment you will have a good understanding of
- what went well that you want to repeat,
- what went great that you want to amplify, and
- what might not have gone well that you want to adjust or remove from your business
This week, we're diving into part 2, goal setting.
Tune in as I share how to set goals for your business, for you as an owner, and 5 things you want to avoid as you're setting goals, specifically for an independent consulting business.
