91% of Business Owners Could See Higher Revenue Using a Strategic Plan

91% of Business Owners Could See Higher Revenue Using a Strategic Plan | Small Business is Big Business | Scoop.it

The Alternative Board (TAB), the world's largest franchise provider of peer advisory boards and business coaching services, released the results of its quarterly, third-party Small Business Pulse Survey today - and the results are surprising. Although 76% of respondents say they believe having a written strategic plan increases overall business performance, 91% don’t have what they consider to be an “excellent” plan. In fact, 22% have no written strategic plan at all. While the majority of business owners are expecting the economy to improve, they admit they’re not in the best position to capitalize on it.

Why You May Want to Re-access Your Business Plan

Why You May Want to Re-access Your Business Plan | Small Business is Big Business | Scoop.it

Last weekend was eye opening. I had been invited to attend an Entrepreneurial Seminar and even though I didn’t think I had the time to spend all day Saturday and Sunday, I went anyway. I needed to get out of the house.

 

The leader of the seminar was only 29 years old and I thought, “What’s a kid going to teach me?” Well it turned out, he taught me a lot and that seminar has prompted me to re-access my business plan.

5 (or 6?) Reasons Why Web Publishing is Changing

5 (or 6?) Reasons Why Web Publishing is Changing | Small Business is Big Business | Scoop.it

Excellent summary by Richard MacManus, the founder of ReadWriteWeb, on some of the recent shifts that affect Web Publishing. He lists 5 reasons but I would add a 6th (which actually reconciles his 1 and 4): the shift of value from Creation to Curation. 


As he points out, we're moving to more casual forms of publishing and at the same time are hungry for quality. As more and more people embrace curation as a form of expression, they're exactly doing that, using their own particular expertise to identify relevant quality content and publishing more easily than through writing a long blog post.

Judy Mackenzie's insight:

Trust is the foundation for all solid communication. Think about the last time you had a conversation that didn't go so well and if you are honest with yourself "trust"  was likely at the bottom of it.
