Good things don’t come to those who just wait for things to happen but to those who plan and act!
Once upon a time, a little bird wanted to build its nest, to have his friends and family over. Not sure how to go about it and what tweaks to use the bird decided to talk to the best friend, the wisest owl in the forest, she told him that before starting the nest it would have been wise to list the main objectives and have a clear mind on why having a nest was important to him and to think of the future and where he wanted to be.
Moral of the story is: if you are serious about something you need to go for it and plan it so your chances for success are higher. So whether you are starting a business, or a marketing campaign or developing a new product... PLAN PLAN PLAN!
Don't get tricked by the ease of setting up a social media platform or the do it yourself website... before jumping for it, have a strategy and again PLAN!
Life is full of changes, some good, some bad, some easy to deal with and others hard but it’s how you face changes that make the difference.
The secret is: always have a smile on your face, a plan in mind and a clear vision, and these will help you see the projects through.
So here it is, say the little bird wanted to have a dinner party and needed to go shopping for it, the wise advise to give him would be: know your budget, prepare the menu, then write a shopping list so that when you are at the supermarket you save time and not wander around, you do not overspend on things you didn't need and you don't forget important ingredients; the same goes for your business.
A solid house has a strong foundation, a successful business has a well-designed plan!
