My business plan, being retired, is easy. Read more, do more with the wife and watch the grandkids. Now it is about the allocation of time.

No... when I left the corporate world in 1989 I promised myself I'd never, ever again do a business plan. When I returned to work in 1992, I kept that promise. I've kept that promise to myself since. I've done better than okay for almost 32 years now with bogging myself down with plans. I know what needs to be done and put one foot in front of the other each day and do it. And somehow things always work out.

The main thing I focus on year after year is consistency in my marketing.

I am trying to systemitize my systems - so I can work smarter too - that seems to be a consistent theme here - I love Debe Maxwell, CRS 's focus on educating our spheres - I send out a bi-weekly newsletter - a little is about the family - Christmas, Lise Courtney's wedding etc - so I am staying in touch and touching them/sharing with them, but it is also about the market and trends - real estate and life style.

Absolutely 100%, John! As I teach agents when given the opportunity to work with newer (and some older) agents, YOU own a business. Act like a business owner/CEO. 

I can't imagine the CEO of say, Nordstrom, declaring it's okay not to have a business plan - with set goals. "Sure, let's fly by the seat of our pants this year!!" LOL

And, forgot to tell you - this year's spotlight is education (for my sphere). I feel that this market dictates that. As well as the current state of our media. Our sphere/clients need the truth and the national media does not have boots on the ground here in Charlotte, NC!

Absolutely been doing a strategic thinking action plan for now over 20 plus years. This year the focus is increasing my referral business which is now at around 90%. Additionally fine turning my internal processes, so far 6 days in so good. Our firm has a CRM, but for me I need a different big picture, probably because of my past experiences.
