Small Business Planning

I've done my fair share of small business planning for clients.

I've felt the sweaty panic that comes with worrying about how to make a payroll... 

Experienced the raw reality of going before the banker when you need money...

Had the pulse that flutters when sales are down...

What I've learned is...

Creativity is my Super Power! 

With it I can think my way through the biggest challenges.

But, sometimes, life gets the best of me, and problems wrap themselves around me like a Giant Snake Dragon...

The Giant Snake Dragon squeezes and squeezes until every precious ounce of my creativity is gone.

When this happens it's impossible to do small business planning, create small business marketing strategies, or do business strategic planning.

When the "Giant Snake Dragon" attacks, I have some battle tested techniques I use to defeat him.

I have  7 techniques.  Here are 3...

  1. Prioritize and organize. When you're zapped creatively, it's normally because you're doing low value tasks, or you're disorganized and feeling lost in the shuffle.
  2. Retreat. Walk barefoot through the grass.  Buy a new book.  Pull away from the battle and gain perspective.
  3. Brainstorm. Fresh brains thinking out loud in a Disney-like setting, often yield my clients juicy new ideas!

Small business planning is much more productive when your mind is fresh, clear, and creative!
