Whether you are a new real estate agent or have been in the game for 20 years, setting goals is vital to growing your business and setting you up for success. It’s important to think through every aspect of your business, from what you accomplished in the previous year to where you want to see growth, and devise a strategy to accomplish it. The best way to achieve this is by creating a business plan.
What is a business plan?
In short, a business plan is a strategic, written plan that outlines your overall goal and the actionable steps you need to take to accomplish it in a realistic and tactile manner. And while you should write your plan down, it doesn’t mean it is a static document. Your business plan should constantly be re-evaluated and adjusted based on variables, successes and failures.
Why do you need a business plan?
You might have an end-goal in mind for this year but without creating an organized plan on how to get there, you’re shooting in the dark. Determining the steps you need to take to reach your goals helps you make clear, thought-out decisions to enhance your business and tackle objectives. A business plan also keeps you accountable and sets you out on a clear path for success.
