Planning Report – A Free Gift For 2009

Ray Stewart General, Online Business Leave a Comment

I know I said my next free offering for the readers of this blog would be a time management report. However, when I started writing it another theme came to mind and forced it’s way to the fore. So… the report I have written is about planning and it is available to download here for everyone, please click and grab a copy.

Traditionally, the quiet time between Christmas and the New Year is one of the few opportunities the busy entrepreneur has for reflection on the past year and planning for the new year about to start. I have been doing this myself even whilst out shopping with the family yesterday! I secreted myself away in the cafe at Bhs and drank some yukky lattes whilst putting notes into my notebook (remember that from the Recession Busting Tips Report?) about planning. Last night, whilst the family watched TV I half wrote the report and finished it this morning. My eldest son, Chris, proof read it and so it is available just over 24 hours from first thought to finished product. A new record for me!

Have you been thinking similar thoughts? Or like most, slumped in front of the TV?

Your business will appreciate you spending some quiet time on it and I hope the planning report will help you define your direction for 2009.

Don’t forget to let me know what plans you are making, and then we can look back this time next year and see how you have done. Are you confident enough to commit your goals to a comment right here for eternity? and then strong enough to compare your actual performance over the year back here in a years time?

Lets see…

I am a qualified Certified Practising Accountant having passed my final exams way back in 1981. I actually can’t believe that was 37 years ago!! Anyway, I am now in my 60’s and I have been running my own business since May 1983. And before you ask, no, I have never regretted a moment of it! Part of the membership requirements of my professional body now dictate that I spend quite a lot of time on “CPD” - continuing professional education (one of their better ideas) - and over the last two years I decided to study business growth and marketing. I have learnt such a lot and that knowledge has radically changed my old “accountants” approach to business. It has made such a difference to the way I work and operate I feel that I just have to pass on this knowledge. It is simply too powerful to hold back!! - but I will try and do it in simple terms rather than expecting you to spend hours, as I had to, working through the difficult language that trainers seem to use to pass on their concepts. I hope you find the blog a useful resource and interesting place to visit as the months pass. I will do my best to keep up the flow - but if there are any topics you would like me to cover, then please let me know. Ray Stewart
