This week we have our very own Ben from start to finish. Ben is on a mission to reduce the fatality rate of small businesses, so it’s time for some free business advice from someone who has been inspiring business owners for decades. The main focus of Ben’s advice today is goal setting: one of the most important aspects of business and life. By the end of the show you will understand how high you need to aim and what you need to do to get there.
See some of Ben’s top tips below:
** Think about calendar-year planning rather than financial-year planning. If you line up your financial goals with your life goals then you might find them more useful.
** When you review your goals, ask yourself 'what did I achieve?' and 'what didn’t I achieve?’. But then make sure you ask why.
** When your ‘why’ becomes clear the ‘how’ becomes easy.
** Don’t set goals to impress other people. Do them for yourself!
** Think about how your business can give to your community. It doesn’t have to be money, it can be time.
In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:
** The business Excellerator explained
** How to set the right goals
** Keith Abraham’s goal-setting technique
