Have You Thought about your Business Plan for 2014?


many peole standing recruitingHave you thought about your business plan for 2014? Yes, it seems it was just summer! But, that planning season is just around the corner (I hope you’re planning in November). To help you get that plan together, I’ll be doing business planning blogs exclusively in November and December.

What Should be Different about your Planning Process This Year?

Business planners internationally are really changing how they do the business planning process. Yet, the real estate community is decades behind the times. One of the areas where we’re behind is who we involve in the process. We generally do it by ourselves, and then present it to our agents (if we share it at all!) That’s really, really old style! And, it just doesn’t work very well.

Gain new planners! This year, you shouldn’t do your plan by yourself. Instead, you should involve your agents in the plan. How should you do that? I will discuss this in the free business planning webinar that I’m giving Nov. 22 (see below).A� When you involve your agents in your plan, you

2. Help agents create their plans by showing them the planning model

3. Show your agents you actually create a plan!

4. Demonstrate you are a leader

I created the business planning process through my book on business planning I wrote for real estate professionals (the only such internationally published book). Through test marketing the planning process I’ll share with you, I found out how to accomplish the 4 points above. I will show you how on Nov. 22. Join me!A� Plan_Act_Celebrate
