The 2021 Plan
A PLAN is a detailed proposal for doing or achieving something; an intention or decision about what one is going to do. PLANNING is the process of making plans for something. A BUSINESS PLAN is a document setting out a business's future objectives and strategies for achieving them.
Prior to completing my licensee exam, I developed a business plan. Once it was clear to me that my real estate business is MY business (with support from my broker), I made the decision to treat is as such…from all avenues. As 2020 started to wind down, my business radar alerted me that it was time to start planning for 2021.
One of the foundations for any plan is a look at what has already been done. What were the benchmarks for the current/soon-to-be previous year? What were the successes? What were the opportunities? Well, here I was 60 days into my business and I'm still taking training courses to better understand the ins and outs. So…where do I start?
A GOAL is the object of a person's ambition or effort, an aim or desired result. My goals for 2021 will be the basis of my business plan for 2021 - what do I want to achieve? How do I plan to achieve it? What is important to me? What will build on to the foundation that has been established - even if short lived? Yes, I am a professional maintaining as an active student - absorbing every piece of information regarding real estate…but I have been putting in work for nearly six months, so my foundation is a bit more developed than the average. Let's make it happen.
My overall plan for 2021 is to seize opportunities, learn lessons with an open heart, keep priorities in place, maintain necessary boundaries, be present and work hard on whatever I need to be the best version of myself. My business will align accordingly.
