Plan for Success
Plan for Success is based on my experience of working with 1000’s of business clients. Being an entrepreneur myself and a business adviser by training – not an accountant, it’s practical, fun and in colour!!
I have created one spreadsheet which works for both PC and Apple. It enables you to review and plan your year, including all the important elements, to make money and keep you on top of and in control of your business. Laying it out in this format highlights potential income!!
- How your business is doing financially – at a glance!
- Your goals and mission.
- Key marketing plans for the year.
- How many clients or products purchased.
- Your money in, money out and the difference.
- Any money you owe or owed to you.
- How much money you have taken out of the business.
- Monthly and Yearly financial totals, including how much tax you are likely to pay.
- Your bank balances.
- All on one coloured spreadsheet.
If it sounds like a lot of work, don’t worry. I usually create the initial spreadsheet for you. It only takes 20 minutes each month to update.
This process brings the key business information into focus and prevents lots of worrying. About half my clients are excited and happy to complete them without any further help. Often we come up with innovate ways together to make massively more money. Occasionally clients ask for monthly mentoring sessions to support them meet those goals.
It works for start ups and more experienced businesses.
Yes, you will make more money or I will happily refund your fee!! Most clients double their sales. Cost £300.
Call or message me to discuss whether a Plan for Success is right for you.
“Either I make my business work properly this year or I give up” said a potential client who had been working part-time for years.
Unusually, she emailed me her figures without prompting. I re-created them in my Plan for Success spreadsheet. After playing around with them for a while, I thought she could increase her profit margin from 18% to 80% within a year and massively grow her businesss.
I explained my suggestions to increase her business from £500 to £3,000 a month. She gulped, saying “you will have to help me do it”. I agreed to give her monthly coaching and mentoring on one condition – no more spending on courses.
With support and motivation, she was earning over a £1,000 within 3 months, at a profit margin of 75%.
Within 6 months her income had trebled.
A year later: Her earnings are £2,800 a month, with a profit margin of 78% and still growing – on her own. I am delighted she understands business and money now, confidently talking about her business and its future.
