Do you feel like you’re at the point to be a bigger little business? Read on! If you love lists as much as I do, you will enjoy this method of planning how to free up your own time.
In seven years, my web design studio, Aeolidia, has gone from being just me on my couch, to a team of 22 people (including me, still on my couch). While I have been very diligent about learning and improving all the time, I have never put together a business plan or seriously set goals for the business. This has worked out for me so far, but this year, I am working on being purposeful!
Most of our business milestones just happened to me, and it was my job to jump into them with open arms. Now that I’m not resisting growth, I can see that I could have sped up the process by seeking out these opportunities. Clearly, a structured plan is not a prerequisite for success, but it seems to me it couldn’t hurt to prepare for it.
