How To Use Strategy In Your Microbusiness
Are you so busy that you’re just checking things off your list, instead of planning and achieving the vision for your business? It’s easy to lose sight of what you’re really trying to accomplish, when you are stuck in the day-to-day. That’s why having a strategy, a plan of action that helps you achieve a goal, is so important for your business.
“The challenge for me when I think about people creating strategy is, we’re just so excited to have our passion turned into an idea and somebody willing to buy it, that we don’t really think about being a million dollar or ten million dollar business, we’re just thinking, wow I just want to have a customer.” ~ Mary McCarthy
This week, host Mary McCarthy talks to Jennifer Milius, an author, speaker, and leadership coach about the importance of strategy in your microbusiness. A microbusiness is a small business with 20 of fewer employees, including the solopreneur.
