Ep 26 - Time to Start Planning Next Years Business Goals for Your Small Business

Episode 26 – The Local Small Business Coach Podcast

Today’s Topic: Time to Start Planning Next Years Business Goals for Your Small Business 



In today’s episode: We discuss why it is critical for you to set your business goals for next year. You don't want to risk not growing your business by doing what you have been doing. You want to push yourself to improve and grow.



Welcome back to the Local Small Business Coach Podcast, I am your coach Tammy Adams.  

Today we are going to discuss why it is important that you start to plan your 2017 goals now if you haven’t already.

I’m sure you have thought on and off about what you hope to do next year. They typically come in flashes. For example, maybe you are paying bills and tell yourself that you need to increase you profits the next year. Maybe even going as far as thinking of a specific number.

Maybe you mumble to yourself during the summer months how next year you really do need to hire some help much earlier next time.  Or maybe you thought about some new products or services you would introduce in the coming year?

Best case scenario you have been capturing these thoughts along the way. Maybe in a notebook or an ap in your phone. This way you can easily reference them for the exercise I will challenge you with today.


So before we dive into what you should capture, let’s take a few minutes and discuss why you want to start in November and why it is critical to your local small business’s success next year.


Businesses that do not carve out a plan for the new year, tend to get the same year repeated over and over. 


While the calendar flips over to a new year, it might as well just be flipping to a new month only. When you do what you did last month, you will get what you got last month. And the month before that and the month before that. Anyone that doesn’t plan out 2017 will get 2016 repeated.


Now, that might be good for you and perfectly ok. Maybe you had a banner year and you think you will get the same thing. Then again, maybe you won’t. Without a plan, you are taking a big risk.


The world is full of people that keep reliving the same year over and over. Both personally and professionally.  I have a sense you are the type that wants more than that. You are the type that wants to take your business next year to the next level. You want better sales, more profit and a smoother running business.


You do this by having a plan. A plan that you want to put together now.

Why a month early? This allows you the time to put into place anything you need to hit the ground running on January 1st.
