We’ve said it before and no doubt we’ll say it again – one of the key differences between being (and staying) self-employed and on the tools…and running, building and enjoying a true, tradie business is having a great plan.

Before you fall asleep or click away from this post, just remember – great plans don’t necessarily have to be 27 pages long! In fact, some of the best business plans are short, direct, clear and easy to read and implement.  You should be referring back to your plan on a regular basis to make sure you’re on track and more likely to achieve your business and personal goals.

To make this process even easier (and more likely that you’ll do it) Alex Glassey from StratPad has developed an app to do all this for you! With some simple entry of figures and information about your business you could have a rocking business plan that could help you:

  • get more money from your bank
  • attract more customers
  • recruit great staff (and retain them)
  • delegate to your team and free up your time for other activities
  • and so much more

Listen to Alex as he explains just how important having a plan is and some of the frightening statistics about businesses that don’t!
